    This is the 'fake busters' thread. Your post would be better placed in the I've got buyers remorse thread

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

    Hi sashaunl, going off your description and the images you have provided I would say your TAG Heuer is real.

    I am new here, if I were to bring a Formula 1 I am considering buying to a Tag Heuer AD, could they confirm if it is real or not . Otherwise does it need to be sent out to be authenicated.
    Thanks for any replies

    No doubt an AD will know more about the watch than you currently do so that is a good step. You can post good pics (especially of the insides!!) and the forum crew can comment.

    I'm not sure where you would send a watch for authentication unless you are willing to pay for the service. And I assure you that service is normally for watches far more expensive than F1s... so will probably cost what you paid for the F1.

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

    Hi all,

    Hoping I can get some advice on a particular watch. It was my fathers, he has a collection of fake and authentic watches. Some boxed, some with certs, .. just a real big box of mess.

    I took a couple to the jewellers and they said one was real one was fake and that they will normally destroy any fakes, so I really don't want to take this one I am going to show you to them just incase they smash it. I really like it. If it is a fake then I will certainly be buying the genuine version of it.

    Here it is:

    Ahh that is a shame, feels really heavy, The strap also feels really good all the links move etc.. So what watch is it supposed to be and do tag still make and sell it? I bet the real one is amazing if this fake feels pretty good.

    The misspelling of "swiss" on the hammer is a pretty good giveaway. Also looks like there is lack of anti-reflective coating.

    It's a Monaco fake. Monacos are still made but not with that white dial. Go to tagheuer.com to see current models.

    Hi everyone. I am new to this forum and just happened to stumble on it while researching a couple of watches I just bought. I would like to know your thoughts about the two watches in the links below. Are they real or are they fake? These are my first Tag watches. I have always wanted one, but have been on more of a Seiko budget. I picked both up for what seemed like good deals. I am interested to hear your opinions on authenticity.
