    Ah, cool, I didn't catch that. What sort of threw me in the non-authentic direction was the lack of any part number or serial number, and I thought maybe something more should have been on the face, but the laser etching versus stamping did not occur to me.

    Hi. i'm about to bid on this watch here Omega SpeedMaster Moon to Mars Men watch | eBay
    But I'm afraid if it's a fake. I can't tell, but maybe some of you can. The only thing I notice is that Mars doesn't seem to have the same strong color as it has on other pictures if I google the watch. Is there a way to make sure before I start bidding? Thanks!

    Eeeb, was this answer for me?
    It's pretty funny, I've been able to contact Tag Heuer by two different means:
    - the TAG Heuer "after-sales service" DID find a trace of this number, they told that it is indeed a S/EL CG1110-0.
    - the Customer Service (linked to Swizterland) could not recognize the serial number J88240
    This Customer Service (just had them on the phone) told me that it could be that the watch, even fake, could have been in their hands for replacing the battery or something. I'm perplex.
    The nice girl on the phone also told me that the "background of the date is black" on her catalog. I'm more perplex, I've never seen that before, and it would imply that the numbers are white or light grey... She's going to scan me the catalog page.
    Funny thing.

    guemsss.

    your watch is legit.Although the date ring may indeed have been originally black/grey.

    I've seen many authentic sel chrono with the white date ring maybe that's an indication of a movement replacement or date ring change i don't know,and i certainly wouldn't consider a watch to be a "Fraken" watch just because of a date ring colour.

    One could also argue that the white date ring against a black dial makes reading the date more easily.

    The hands and dial hour markers on the CG1110-0 could do with reluming.


    the heuer mikrograph is a poor fake just take a look at calibre 11 review of one and your see straight away the difference in quality

    Looks real. Vendor is ok... but don't take that as an endorsement as I consider them normally overpriced...
