    Planning to buy SKX399

    I am planning to buy the SKX399, and I see several units posted on Facebook. Of course I am a bit careful in looking at the watches to see if they are authentic or not. I noticed that some watches have the "Divers 200m" in yellow or even white text instead of the red. Which color is more favorable?

    Also what are the production years of this model? Some dealers claim that the watch they are selling is made in 2007, but I think its 1997. Havent really seen a 399 with BMBY later than 2002.

    I'm no 399 expert but the Philippines is naturally where authentic ones should be found.

    Normal Facebook rules apply. Ask questions and see who is candid in their answers. Ask for more/better pictures. Shop the seller as much as the watch.

    Or make your own from a 007 and a 399's dial.

    That 399/401 dial has always looked like one of those SE Asia aftermarket dials to me, which is why I never got into the market for them. How do you even tell it's the real thing buying second hand?

    You can tell by the chrome lined indices. But yes you are right, there isnt really any way of telling if its real or not!
