    Legit? The G-8900SC-6 from eBay vendor "KC-Group" has arrived from Hong Kong...

    The G-8900SC-6 arrived from eBay vendor "KC-Group". Here's a couple of pictures below. First impression is that it looks to my untrained eye like my other 8900s. However, unlike the "for reference only" picture on the eBay item page, there is no international warranty card. Is this a red flag?

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.

    warranty cards are window dressing now. you need a receipt from an authorized dealer to qualify for coverage. grey market, secondary market you are on your own.

    So then the only question becomes, "Is it authentic?"

    from the 2 pics it looks good. if you could, take some a bit further away and under brighter light to see the details.

    Working long days this week so I'm going to post a detailed video Saturday. I do hope it's legit. This is the one. In every picture I saw it looked amazing to me. I kept seeing the pictures and not finding what I thought was a legit vendor so I just had to roll the dice one this one. They had 5 remaining and they're all gone now.

    Yeah, it's pretty striking. Thanks for weighing in.

    Fonts, display windows and screw heads all look kosher. Nothing says fake to me. It's a stunner.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.
