    I just found this sale post at another forum: Tag Heuer CARREREA DAY DATE CV2A10 - White dial - Excellent - Rolex Forums - Rolex Watch Forum. I'm not the seller and I have no affiliation with the seller, but the movement looks identical to me.
    I found two issues in a quick look..the model number on the back says CV2A10..it only comes in black dial and this one is white :)

    Also, the calibre 16 movement is incorrect..notice the incorrect line between SWISS MADE..



    here is a picture of a REAL calibre 16 movement with centered geneve stripe

    Real sharp eyes Qadhi! Thanks for your help.

    I also had the answer confirmed by 2 experts face to face - Rob and Russ at Topper Jewelers. Rob sat down with an authentic Caliber 16 Carrera next to mine and pointed out the incorrect areas.

    1. Missing pearlage (something I learned today!) near the hairspring
    2. Bridge near the balance wheel has wrong finish
    3. Screws have wrong finish
    4. Screws have tool marks
    5. Crown action doesn't feel like a 7750 movement
    6. Some of the parts (such as the inside portion of the rotor) are the incorrect size

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

    Hi all. This summer my 9-year-old son found a watch on the beach in Brighton (UK). The watch says Tag Heuer. Thinking it was valuable, I looked into it. There's no serial number on the back, so I can't trace it back to the owner. So I'm guessing it's a cheap replica and my son can keep it. Can someone please confirm that based on these (poor) images?

    does this look genuine? - by the description, it would seem it is....

    Re: HELP! Fake Tag or real?

    Hi guys and gals,

    I'm a pool player..not a watch guy :) however someone in a forum I frequent is looking to trade a Tag for a nice pool cue. Can someone go over there and look at this pics and let me know if this Tag is real? I'd really appreciate it.

    Here is the link: WTT: limited edition Tag Heuer watch for pool cue(s)? - AzBilliards Forums

    Thanks in advance!!

    Buy the seller... why is a seller trying to push it on a billiards forum instead of a watch forum?

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

    Pretty common practice over there, people will trade things of different interests, etc. I think he also had it listed on some other watch site as well...

    If you'd looked closely at the dial, you would have noticed that the numbers are badly aligned....... That's a dead giveaway before looking at the movement etc....
