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

    Sorry, didn't see this thread when I started my own so here goes....

    Hi everyone, could you please authenticate (or otherwise) this calibre 5?

    Hi there, took a punt on this watch from a well known auction site but it came with no box or paperwork.

    It does look and feel genuine to me, but as I'm by no means an expert I thought I'd seek the advice of the great and the good of this fine forum.

    Please be gentle with me.

    Cheers, just been comparing it with pics of the same watch in the Carrera thread and it does look identical in every way, especially round the back.

    It's a fraction lighter than my Aquaracer alarm but I sort of expect that; I suppose I just need some validation due to it having no documentation and getting it (if it's genuine that is) for a very good price.

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

    Hello,

    I'm an novice who just bought a so-called 74 Kaliber Glashütte on ebay. (The story is textbook: Ebay novice, wishes to buy a nice watch for husband's birthday. Assumes from the detail of information/image quality that it is a reliable seller. Non-auction piece. Sent a very low bid not expecting it to be taken. Now, getting what I paid for??)

    Before sending payment, I would like some experts to confirm my intuition: that I did not look carefully and it's obviously a fake.

    -The watch face says "automatic" and "shockproof." I assume this is the clear sign that this is not an authentic watch.
    -Was Glashütte in the export business like the seller says? I assume not.
    -There were no images of the back/inside. Have asked the seller for verification.

    Advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!

    This is the TAGHeuer forum. I would suggest asking in either German or Vintage. They will know more than us!

    This looks real to me. Any other opinions?

    I was looking at getting this TAG HEUER CALIBRE 16 CHRONOGRAPH. Looks to be a good deal but hard to tell if I can trust the seller.

    STUNNING TAG HEUER CALIBRE 16 CHRONOGRAPH 41MM WATCH WITH BROWN STRAP & DIAL | eBay

    This is what I dug up from my online research:
    He has 219 feedback ratings all positive but when I looked into the actual feedback the majority is from one person and he is the buyer.
    He does have a website and phone number.
    Luxury Watch Deals by CBA Luxury Gifts
    T: (718) 200-5300

    When I goggled the number it came up with some Asian call girl or spa service along with the luxurywatchdeals website.

    Puts a whole new spin on 'call for service'... I see no problems with the watch but this one of the most faked TAGHeuers.

    Buy the seller... i.e. don't buy this watch!
