    Thumbs Up Is This Michele 71-413-SG , Watch a real watch

    Hello,
    I just bought a Michele 2 tone stainless steel watch , ? , marked 10 ATM water resistant , 71-413-SG , Japan .
    Bought at a garage sale / tag-sale around $5. dollars , lightly used condition
    I havn't opened it yet , and I also cannot locate this model number on any Michele Watch website .
    I paid next to nothing , for it ... and thats probably what I got. Not worried either way, just curious .

    Please do the best you can with the little info you got. If you have questions , let me know. GG_Miami / 11.19.17

    What ? You can't preform magic ?
    OK, let me know if the Michele Watch model number # 71- 413- SG ,
    exists. and if it does , let me know what a genuine Michele Watch's
    movement would look like. for that number.
    What would I look for, to tell the differences between replica and genuine ,
    on movement , it's self. AND , what would I look for , on watch dial or other parts of watch
    to tell , too ?
    I have just enough knowledge , to get me in trouble , thanks .
    Since looking at a picture would tell you something important , maybe you could
    share that information ( secret ingredients ) with me ?
    I promise to use this knowledge , only for the good of mankind , and never for evil .
    Thanks Mike, be well,
    GG_MIAMI

    Q: Is this Michele ... a real watch?
    A: If it has hands, a movement and runs then by definition it is a real watch.

    A quick Google search indicates that Michele watches are now part of Fossil. They are highly decorated and would be considered a fashion brand. The question you may want to look into is whether the watch is a $5.00 flea market special or not. Yes, they are common in the fashion market brands.

    If it isn't running have the dead battery removed asap.

    Even if a Michele # 71- 413- SG exists nobody can tell you if you got the real thing.

    Make sure the pallet fork has an “M” engraved in Spencerian cursive on the back. That’s how you know it’s real.

    Just kidding, there’s no good way to tell.

    I think you might have overpaid by the looks of it.
