    "FAKE OR PROTOTYPE?"

    I'd go with option #1 based on fit/finish or lack thereof.

    Great, thanks for the fast response too. I might give it away as a gift if I can get those scratches off of the glass or a new glass in it. Otherwise it might get flipped for one for me :)

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

    Can anyone help advise if this is a real or fake Tag? I bought it on ebay and am very happy with it, but I've now realised that there seem to be many sites that sell replicas that look very good quality to me and it's making me think that I might have bought a fake. There is no reason to think that though, it keeps fine time and seems very good wuality, but I imagine fakes are probably like that too now days!. It came with a guarantee, a shop receipt and the credit card copy slip attached too, which made me confident that it was original. However, the guarantee does not quote the serial number, just the model number.

    I would be grateful for any thoughts you may have. Next stop will be the jewellers, but I thought it may be worth getting some ideas from yourselves.
    Thanks very much.

    Did TAG ever use laser etching on the caseback (besides for the model/serial number)?? That bothers me...

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

    Hi, I'm new here, first time poster. I would like to see if I can get some help authenticating a watch from eBay. The link is here eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices I hope I didn't break any rules or link this wrong. I read through the forum rules and THINK I understood them, but I'm never sure. TIA!

    I don't see any problems but they don't show the movement...
