    Insufficient data to say for sure but it feels like a fake to me... the dial seems to have a problem at the date window and the lettering seems wrong... and the bezel's numbers are not crisp. More data will get a better answer.

    New to this forum and just got a new tag and was wondering if anyone can help me authenticate this new F1 I recently got. It seems legit to me, but just want to be sure. Thanks :) I also have some more pictures if needed.

    First step - run the serial number through Google to see if that is a serial number on other watches. If so, bad sign. They are unique except on fakes.

    The only thing that I could get from google were Brazilian license plates. I googled tag heuer ______ and tried again with just the serial number. I'm assuming thats a good start, correct? Thanks.

    Hi everyone some lovely watches on here.
    I'm hoping that you can tell me if this tag kirium F1 my wife bought for me is real or not looks like the real deal as it's pretty close to my brothers kirium automatic chronometer?
    Many thanks

    If the LCD display is really there, it's really real!

    the bezel is actually ok for the 2000 series this age. But that's about it. Fake dial, fake hands, ultra-fake logo, and very very ugly. Keep away.

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

    Hi Guys, really glad a forum like this exists and more importantly this thread. Just bought a watch off of eBay and I'm a bit worried if it's fake. I've been hunting and hunting and not found any picks of the Calibre 17 movement with this rotor... so a bit worried. Seen Grand's with black text, was expecting a rotor without the cut out bits...

    The strap is quite worn it does have the Tag Heuer stamp.
