    A bit late but is this an authentic BR01-92?

    Hi

    i am a noob to the Bell & Ross forums though i have coveted one of these amazing timepieces for a very long time now! I know it is a bit late to ask but everything happened so quickly that i didn't get the chance to ask if the watch i just purchased is a fake or authentic!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    if that doesnt work then item number is 170568017609

    I generally tend to get excited and jump headlong into these things then ask questions later but luckilly i haven't bee stung yet.... touch wood! If anyone can help comfirm the watches authenticity before i get it, it would be much appreciated! I should hopefully be recieving it on monday but may get lucky for saturday!

    Well from the photos it looks like it's real, except the strap that is on the watch is not an OEM strap, I would ask the seller if he had the rubber strap as well as the Warranty Card and booklet. I would also ask for a closeup of the back of the watch. The 'Do not unscrew' looks like to be in the correct place. The box sleeve and case looks to be genuine as well. I can barely make out the serial number. So if you could get a better close up that would help out greatly. Remember, 'Due Diligence'!!! Buy the Seller ....etc....

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the reply,

    he has the warranty card and booklet with it too but as the watch is on its way he can't take a photo. He did say that if it is a fake he will refund me 100% including shipping costs but he doubts he will have to as his watchmaker has checked it over for authenticity! I will be recieveing the watch tomorrow so moment of truth i guess will be then!

    Post a photo of the back serial # if it ends with 0176, than I'm afraid it is a fake....hopefully all is Good!

    Cheers!

    Looks good also a lot of replicas are using serial# BR01-92-S-00555, so I'm pretty confident that the watch is legit.... Enjoy the Toy!

    It looked very legit to me as well and I have even considered bidding on it, but I'm really trying not to spend any additional $$ right now.

    I was thinking the same but i made a deal with the guy and i don't think i would have got it any cheaper anywhere else! I'd only just purchased an Anonimo the month before and was looking to save up for a Panerai but that will have to wait now!

    You're right if everything is on the up and up (and It certainly appears to be), you've got yourself a real bargain. Well bought!!
