    Picture Is this a faked Zeno Watch?

    Hi there! :)

    I just found this Zeno Watch on ebay. I am wondering, if it is a genuine or a fake.

    What do you think?

    Ahh with respect, why would a powerseller with 100 items on show, with 32 of those Zenos, suddenly chuck in a fake? Just to keep you on your toes? And for a $195USD watch? To what end? The average price of a Zeno according to the current listings on ebay is (very roughly) from 200 to 400USD. I don't see the point.

    Re: Is this a faked Zeno Watch?

    yes, thats exactly what I thought. But there were three facts that made me suspicious :

    1. The seller is not listed on the official Zeno Homepage.
    2. I have not seen any Zeno watches without a jewel, this one does not have any jewels.
    3. This watch is not listed on the official Homepage

    Hmm..

    1 - true, but, he is an ebay seller. HE doesn't need offical supplier status to sell watches on ebay.

    2 - I don't understand what you are refering to unless you are talking about the movement jewels.

    3 - He may well be selling stock that is a few years old and out of production therefore not mentioned on the website.

    Ambience 360 does sell fakes. I have a quartz zeno diver not made by zeno.
    the watch should say zeno basel, not just zeno. look under there authorized dealer list and see. they also show who sells fakes like zenousa.

    I'd be careful with such statements, according to Zeno they are authorized to sell the brand, i've asked for. Here's a quote from the mail:
    We certify that all the watches that Mr. A.Gollatz or Mr. H. Höhne are selling are original Zeno watches.
    Best regards,
    F. Huber
    Zeno-Watch Patrik-Philipp Huber SA
    Ms. Sandra Naudin
    Secretary of Mr. Felix W. Huber
    Elsässerstrasse 207A
    CH-4013 Basel
    Phone no.: +41/61 321 69 29
    Fax no.: +41/61 321 69 27
    A. Gollatz is named on the About Me page of the eBay store.
    Zeno does make several different brand logos, i've seen Zeno, Zeno Watch Basel, Zeno de Luxe, Zeno Army etc. meanwhile so that's no indication.
