    Are these genuine?

    An HK seller offering a couple of watches on the bay. Not interested in these particular ones, but I'm trying to get a sense of whether his stuff is or . Thoughts?

    Hi!

    This intention is IMHO out of use as many of the Fareast-sellers offer authentic and Frankenwatches side by side.
    The Titoni looks authentic to me but I don´t know anything about Cyma watches.
    Best regards, Mike

    The Titoni looks legit. Not sure what I should think of the dispaly back on the Cyma.
    Kind regards

    The Cyma defenitely NOT genuine...
    the hands are wrong, the finesse of the dial is rubish.

    I love how it says "CYMAFlex" on the dial, but it's just a normal incabloc shock system. Whoever made the dial probably doesn't even know what a Cymaflex is.

    I have another Cyma with the same displayback.

    On brands with which I have no experience, I usually look to see if it is a real and good quality Swiss movement. If so, I assume the rest of the watch is probably legit.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

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

    Here is another one. Front and back crystals are made of sapphire (I've checked it's true), movement is 2824-2.






    Definitely not Cyma Tavannes. But I doubt it's fake. I'm going to send these pictures to Cyma SA and see what's their opinion.

    Do I want to know about the sticky red substance on the edges of the watch?
