    The strap is quite worn it does have the Tag Heuer stamp.
    The pics are in the forum, somewhere! Looks good to me... but owners may know more.

    Thanks Eeeb, yeah been searching away. Tried Calibre 17, CV2113, etc. The more read the more I think it's ok, it's got the ETA symbol and number stamped into the movement.

    This has probably be asked before, what does the 0-100 around the outside of the Carrera chronograph mean?

    Ask this in a new thread as this thread is primarily about authenticity. Thanks!

    If in doubt, send the watch to TH for servicing. I did, and they confirmed that my watch is 100% authentic.

    They don't work on fakes.

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

    Hey guys,
    Great thread. Hoping you can help me out here, just bought a tag off someone with a good rep, was hoping if you could tell me if it was real. He told me that he dropped it off at a jeweler and they said it was real, it is just that it is my first tag and the band feels so cheap (unless they all feel like this lol)
    Thanks in advance

    EDIT: it is supposed to be new, so do they come with a plastic sheet on top of the crystal to protect it from scratches? There is also plastic protector on the back that can be removed. Trying to take a picture of the back but my camera is FUBARd.

    The movement is a genuine eta 2894-2 modular chronograph but believe it may be a have had a replacement movement sometime or a rotor switch.The reason i say this is because of the cut out rotor.I haven't seen these carrera classic models cv2111 and cv2113 with that rotor.Usually they have this rotor




    It has a solid case back and you wouldn't really need to have a cut out(decorated rotor) if it wasn't going to be seen.
