    I see what you mean that the case looks like it has plating wear, but pictures can lie.
    Surely not every Tiffany watch posted in here is a fake...even a presentation watch???

    Of course the faker could have added the presentation engraving to add authenticity..... but
    a deep engraving like this on a plated watch and the plating would be noticed as the brass would
    tarnish a different colour and the plating would be noticed at the engravings edges.

    Edit
    A quick search of the internet turned up this watch which also has the T-120 gold case.

    Could be another 'fake' I suppose....but I've never saw base metal cases which were sand cast
    as these gold cases seem to be.

    Now that one I find rather more convincing. Looks like a 100% Omega that was made to be sold at Tiffany's and therefore also has their name on the dial.

    It is conceivable that the Tiffany watch with Cal. FHF 90-9 is genuine. In that case, only the crown is not appropriate. I am no expert on Tiffany watches but the ones I have seen have always been by renowned makers (Cartier, Patek). Tiffany's themselves don't make watches. In the recent past, they struck up a partnership with the Swatch group whereby Swatch should make watches exclusively for them but after ca. four years, this was cancelled by Swatch.

    As I remember it both parties sued the other. Evidently Tiffany was supposed to put their name on enough watches to allow the opening of a number of worldwide boutiques. I suspect the market collapse of several years ago made this difficult. I think Tiffany is now using GP as their source.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "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!

    As far as I remember, both parties are still very much busy sueing each other - and may still be for a few years! Another marriage made in hell.....
