    Dodgy is the right word for this watch!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    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.

    I feel more than a little silly - thanks for pointing out that this is for TAGHeuer, I found this thread through a search & didn't realize. I'll definitely repost in the Vintage forum. Sorry for the gaffe!

    This is the Monaco Calibre 12 Monaco that I received. Attached are some pictures of it. There are a lot but I wanted to make sure I showed each aspect from the watch, to the package, the movement, and so on. Note that the serial number has been censored.

    I had a couple jewelers look at it and both said that if its a fake its a pretty damn good one.

    I see no problems but the movement pics are not good enough to see problems... others may know more.
