    help authenticate this Epos 3369

    Hi. This may take some time to read so please bear with me. I just received this morning my Epos from a seller from Japan. And since replica watch makers may soon out - perform original manufacturers, I spent the past 4 hours examining the watch against photos, measurements and specifications obtained from Epos website. The box and papers looked and felt real.I have truly found the thing authentic. I have even traced every micro-mm of the heavily decorated back case. But then three things caught my eyes:
    1. The invoice says 3369SL and not 3369 Oh. I searched the net and found this version popular in Japan. Is it the same? And what is SL anyway?

    2. On the website, "Epos" is engraved in the largest gear meanwhile mine just below the gear



    3. The frame of the back case in Epos site says 3369 meanwhile mine says 3369M.

    Aside from these things, the watch is perfectly identical. Do you think the serial number could help in such a case?
    Any clues?

    Do you have a picture of the dial side? Looking closely at the plate tooling in the two pictures reveals small differences. And the engraving around the edge of the back seems coarse, but that may be lighting. The bridge at the bottom in your watch looks coarsely cut but that too may be lighting. In glancing through numerous Google images I only found ones that look like the Epos picture. I did find a an old Epos reference that seems to indicate there were numerous versions of the 3369 made in 2008. You may want to look through that listing as well as more recent ones from Epos.

    Case closed! It turned out there are minor variations in watches Epos exported to its Japanese AD "Europassion.co.jp" the picture below answers all questions
