    Counterfeit IWC on eBay??

    Is this a counterfeit? Looks like second hand is wrong, tick marks seem off, and the movement is unmarked..plus the design on the back doesn't look like the IWC Mark XV's that I've seen.

    IWC Schaffenhausen Watch | eBay

    Seller claims it's been authenticated but refuses to provide information as to what store he took it to.


    FROM the seller: "I do not believe my watch is counterfeit and if you look at the description, I have never claimed it was authentic. I simply stated the information as it is on the watch. No more....no less. So leave me alone about the watch. Thank you."

    Movement screams fake.

    There's a plastic retaining ring.

    …I'd stay away from that one hahaha. His first mistake was putting pictures of the movement. It looks like a Seagull lol.

    and the movement has fingerprints all over it...
    It should look something more like this:

    Pink Floyd. Dark side of the moon. Side one, track four.

    An obvious fake. Turn them in to ebay. I do it all the time, sometimes with success, sometimes not. You'll be saving someone from making a bad mistake. Just above the item number is the "Report Item". Click it and select the appropriate response from the pull down menu. Send a comment describing the circumstance. If everyone did this it would help clean up the site.

    I always report the fakes but they never get taken down! It's like there's one guy on their counterfeit team and he's too busy with Luis Vuitton purses to bother with watches.

    I wrote to the guy and here is his reply.

    "I do not know who you are but this watch has been looked at by a jeweler and I will not take it down."

    I wrote him back and suggested he get someone else to look at it and he replied:

    "This watch is mine to sell and if you think it is fake that is your opinion but you do not have the right to demand I do anything with my property. So unless you are a buyer, buzz off because you are not someone who has the right to tell me what to do. I am not a child and I know what I have to sell."

    Sad, very sad.

    No-one in their right mind is gonna look at the movement and think that's (typical of) the level of watch brand name that's being sold are they......

    are they?


    Seller is clearly deluded though , maybe he just needs a completely deluded buyer ?

    I wouldn't mention the movement pic as the giveaway or he might just remove those from the listing
