    I'm not an expert but recently bought the Prodiver chronograph and checked out this diver too. Looks legit. Do you have anymore pictures?

    It's really difficult to tell from a picture but the watch looks to be on rubber so should weigh about 146g as it's titanuim. Some pretend ones are steel and will be a lot heavier (about twice as heavy) so ask how much the watch weighs and it it's 146g or so It's worth taking a chance on. If it is on a braclelet drop me a PM and I will weigh my Pointer Moon.

    It is on Rubber Strap. Sorry no movement pictures. The seller said he didn't have tools to open it. Here are some more pictures.

    What bothers me is that the bezel indications. The "30" seems not aligned properly.

    Re: Need Help from Oris guru.

    I think the bezel marker misalignment is probably due to the camera angle, because 7, 8, 9 & 10 are also misaligned.

    I'm more concerned about the strap and clasp, as they seem incorrect. A titanium Prodiver should have a titanium clasp, not stainless, and it should also have the micro-adjust diver's extension style clasp and special adjustable strap like the one in these photos. I'm also curious why your pic has a reference number engraved below "Oris Swiss" on the case back, whereas these others don't (although there's no hard and fast rule when it comes to tweaks to case backs). Either way, your pics show the wrong strap and clasp, so it's probably either a fake or someone did a switcheroo and swapped off the better strap and clasp.

    I share Brent's concerns over the strap as it's not the one that should be on the PDD by any means. Brent, do the hands look right to you? I wasn't sure so kept shtum about them but in view of the iffy strap I thought I'd best mention that they looked a bit less bulbous than the ones on mine.

    It might just be the photo. The edges of the hands blend right into the dial so it's really hard to determine the shape of the hands. The hands on mine definitely look more bulbous than these, but they're easier to see.

    O.P., do you have any pics of the side of the bezel where it says "Rotation Safety System Tested to 1000 Metres"? On the real thing the engraving is well done and the letters are straight and correctly spaced. Fakes tend to be sloppy with erratic spacing and different heights, but it's often not noticeable except in pictures that can be displayed on a computer screen. Here's a shot from a real Prodiver followed by one from a fake. The difference is clear.
