    Real or Fake U-Boat

    Hi,
    I'm looking to buy this watch, but i'm not totally feeling it.

    The pictures i recieved from the seller are a bit crappy and the certificate looks unusual.

    The guy said he bought it 7-8 years ago. It is supposed to be a Flightdeck 45mm with a 2824 movement.

    What do you guys think of it?

    Thanks

    Those are the only pics i have.

    The seller dosen't seem to be able to send me higher resolution pictures..

    I will have to go take a look at it in person.

    Is there some perticular points to look at to spot a fake?

    Thanks

    Re: Real or Fake U-Boat

    All the Flightdecks I've seen have 12, 3, 6, and 9 on them. This looks more like an Automatico or Classico. And come to think of it, the Classicos I've seen, don't have U-BOAT in black lettering on the rotor....but I've never seen a U-boat movement with "U-Boat" written in black lettering on the rotor so squished together, except on an Automatico, but the spacing could be distorted because of the blurriness. I would be leery about this piece. Editing this because the 'warranty' card states a 7750 movement?!?!? That watch is definitely not a 7750...possibly a 2824....but the pictures are so blurry.

    Real or Fake U-Boat

    I own a few Uboats and that's suspicious. The card definitely doesn't go to that watch. I had a flight deck from 2010 era and it had the movement on the card and looked like this:


    That there is a U-Boat Automatico Classico and is available everywhere. Again, move on - the passing off with that card is irritating.

    Not able to send hi res photo is a first sight of fake. It just an excuse from seller to try hide his crime.
