    Ask to see the warranty card and/or receipt, if it was purchased through an AD that will boost confidence that this one is the real deal, I can't see enough to comment on the pics provided.

    There are extremely good fakes of the Tissot PRC200, so I would proceed with caution. Post this on the Tissot subforum with extremely high resolution photos of the dial if you want an assessment, but I would be very caution about buying that watch for anyone but a Tissot authorized dealer.

    The problem with that tell is if the person is knowingly selling a fake as real then it could have been lumed.

    tissot there are false false cases and boxes to false warranty cards, is perhaps the most dangerous brand online and buy the complete set does not provide reliability

    the packaging looks a lot like the fake I got. I didn't really realise it was a replica till I went to Costco and looked at the real thing.
    The printing is a lot rougher on the replica. The printed material was done on some cheaper paperstock.
