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

    Hi everyone. New to the forum (code for "go easy on me"). I have recently bought a Tag Heuer Aquaracer on ebay: WAB2010-0 RWV9384 (automatic). It was a bit cheaper as it didn't come with original strap. It had warrantee card and dealers stamp and had been to "watch doctors" (in Tring, UK) for a service and had paperwork from that. Not the original box.

    the movement looks good. My concern is that the dials luminscity isn't as I remember from previous Aquaracer I owned and the markins aren't as white in colour to the ones I have seen in shops. Also, recently it has started running 10mins fast every day!

    Enough info there for alarm bells I'm sure but it was advertised as 100% genuine and he had good feedback.

    I've put some photos up on FLICKR as I can't upload to this forum unfortunately(?) What do you guys thing from those?

    Many thanks for any views. All the best.

    video didn't work for me.movement should be eta 2824-2 or sellita sw200

    Regarding the watch it looks authentic.The dial luminosity depends on firstly if its had a good charge of light secondly if the material has begun to degrade over time.Heat,humidity,light will degrade the material over time.

    The watch may be running fast because it could be magnetised,keep mechanical watches away from strong magnetic fields,or it may just require a service.Have a watchmaker check it over.

    I couldn't really find a lot of info on this particular model, but I googled the serial YC4147 and got this auction which just ended not too long ago.

    Two watches can not share the same serial number if they are both real. Most likely both are fakes.
