    Is this a Bombay special Favre Leuba?

    Hi there, another newbie here having a look at watches for the first time, and I saw this one that I sort of liked the style so I had a look around and read that this brand is famous for fakes, is this one another piece of crap? Would be great if you could break it down so I can learn some. Since it'll be my first watch what I'm looking for is first of all a style and size that I'd enjoy wearing then I'd like it to be original, apart from that is there anything I should be looking for?

    I really liked the look of the Bivouac as well. Cheers

    When you look at the logo, do you notice anything suspicious?

    There are other issues with the engraving/stamping on the case-back and rotor. But once you see something that is really blatant, there's no need to look further.

    No water could get it if it was already full of water?
