    Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

    Hello everyone,

    Looking at this particular auction: BRAND NEW AUTHENTIC TAG HEUER MONACO BLUE CALIBRE 12 AUTOMATIC NO RESERVE | eBay

    Seller says he guarantees the authenticity of the watch or that he'll issue a full refund.

    I intend to take it to a dealer like DeJaun or Ben Bridge to have them verify it.

    Anyone have any input of their own, while I await delivery?

    The best check is not the case or dial, it is the movement. No pics of that... Good luck!

    When you refer to the movement, what exactly are you referring to? The internal equipment? Sorry...this is my first major watch purchase...

    Yes. I guess it's called a movement because that's the part of the watch that moves?? Sometimes it's called the calibre or caliber.

    I hope I'm putting a post about a well dodgy eBay watch for sale in the right thread

    Tagheuer 1000 | eBay

    I feel a bit sorry for someone who spent £205 on a previous buy Tagheuer SLR300 | eBay

    Is this Cyma is a franken? I suspect so, because it's been on sale for a while, as well as some other elements that don't feel like they add up (though I fall for watches as a designer rather than as a purist.) But I don't have the experience to really know. I'd The specs from the seller are:

    CYMA .
    Dial diameter: 41mm.
    Case wide: 45mm
    Wide with crown: 48mm
    Case long from lug to lug: 50mm .

    The watch is in good working condition.

    I'm wondering if I should be concerned about what looks to be a space around the movement in the top left.
    I'm a newbie (to watches as well as the forum), so I'm sorry if this sounds like an obvious question but: I should make a new thread to ask questions about the dial, right?

    Thanks

    I don't think TAGHeuer has anything to do with Cyma. It is a Swatch Group company, not a LVMH company. Try the Vintage forum. That is a better place to ask.

    And Welcome to WUS... it's arranged by topic forums. (Since I moderate in Vintage too, I'll give you my prepost answer, the dial looks hinky to me!) ... but take it to Vintage.
