    Real Audemars Piguet Royal Oak?

    I have been told this is a vintage Royal Oak from the 90s. What do you all think?
    Is it the real deal?

    Not a good start--you could begin by reading the forum guidelines:

    9 . No discussions or pictures of replica watches, or links to replica watch sites unless previously approved by a Moderator or site Administrators. In general, any posts that involve the discussion, encouragement, or solicitation of any kind of illegal activities, whether watch-related or not, is strictly prohibited.

    If it is a replica, then no discussion can or should commence. The point is, if members were to point out discrepancies between the real and the replica, then the counterfeiter would be better equipped to make an even more convincing fake the next time. Arm yourself with knowledge--study the reviews, look at the pictorials, go to an AD and test drive the real thing--there is no substitute for using your brain instead of relying on unknown netizens to help you wend your way through the many facets of watch collecting.

    I feel like you have been told wrong. If it is real, it is really poopy.

    Fake. Just look at indices (inconsistent), hands (not baton), and date-window position.

    That looks like a terrible Photoshop job. 0/10

    It certainly looks as ugly as the other three hundred versions of RO, though.

    I'm not sure if it's possible, but it would be nice if WUS had some sort of forum setting that wouldn't allow you to post a variation of "is this a fake watch" if it's you're very first overall post. I do think there is some value in this type of question, as I recently thought a friend had bought (unknowingly) a fake Cartier. But still.

    Anybody that doesn't know that watch is fake doesn't belong on this forum.

    It is totally ok to ask and to get on answer. Until we conclude it is a fake we are allowed to discuss about it. As you said no need to point out the exact features though. Take some relaxing tea.
