    Grossly overpolished, but probably real.

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

    What struck me was the distance between the markings (model and serial no.) on the back. I've never seen them so close...

    They are laser etched... I assume the placement is done by hand. If so, some variations in the tens of thousands done can be expected. The serial number does not come up on a google search (good sign).

    It passes my tests so far but I'd have to see a movement pic before I bought.

    Thank you. I want to know if an Olympic Edition of this model ever came out. Google search does not show one.

    Look over at David's site, Calibre11.com, and see if there is anything. And some of the google alternatives are better sometimes...

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

    Hello - I recently purchased a Carrera from an authorized seller, however I am now starting to have concerns as I can not find other versions of this Carrera on the internet. The movements, weight and finishing of the product all seem high end, however, I haven't seen other Carrera's with the numeric and stick combos. Does anyone have experience with this face?
