    The model and serial numbers were not created at production time... they were added by a jeweler or the like... avoid.

    Once you have it, it would be simple to determine if it is a fake as I can see no crooks actually duplicating the operation of this movement.

    Hi, Eeeb, I didn't actually win the watch I just wanted to see what others say about it. I think it's a fake...I guess we'll know if someone actually tries to verify it... What gave it away is that it has a date window which the original didn't have... and the movement itself doesn't has two balance wheels (one runs at 3.6M beats per hour for the chronograph function and the other is at 28000 beats per hour...) I only see one clearly noticeable but doesn't look like the original... The movement looks like a generic 7750 ... the mystery remains, however, only David can tell us for sure...

    I agree it is very suspect!!

    Hi,

    Looking at this Carrera that's for sale at the moment. It looks pretty legit to me, despite the pictures coming from a pretty average camera.

    The only difference I can see in the movement from normal is the small screws near the centre not looking purple, but I put this down to the poor photo:
    (Unless that's how it's supposed to be on the '06/'06 version of the movement?)

    Seems to come with all the requisite components:

    But what's the story with blank warranty cards? I've seen them before, sold with genuine watches. This one comes with one:
    (To me it doesn't look like he's edited out the details for the picture, unless he's better at photoshop than he is with a camera)

    And while I'm here, should I worry about the offset here on the bracelet?

    Thanks Cowboy B.

    Can anyone shed some light on how the warranty cards work? I would imagine they need to be stamped by the AD, filling in the rest of the info would be easy enough.

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

    dear All,
    I am looking at this Heuer Bundeswehr on Chrono 24:
    Heuer Bundeswehr Flieger-Chronograph für

    I have been told it has completely been serviced by Sinn in 2011 and it was purchased from the Airforce department in northern Germany in 2010
    can anyone of you give me a suggestion?

    Thank you, Lorenzo
