    WARNING! Fake Oris Aquis on Ebay

    Guys,

    I found these videos on youtube about fake Oris Aquis being sold on eBay. I bought one as well, and I was tricked! I did notice the box was a little beat up and faded, but the watch itself looked perfect. It was wrapped in plastic and even had the Oris Aquis hang tag! I complicated things by sending it off to my friend who wanted to buy it from me. I ended up winning the auction for $620 (turned out to be $650 with tax eBay added).

    So I'm in the process of getting the watch sent back to me and I'll initiate the return process with eBay. The youtuber who posted the fake Aquis videos did get his money back from eBay with the 100% buyer protection guarantee. So that's good.

    I never thought someone would fake a modern Oris Aquis! That's why my guard was down.

    Here are the links (2 videos)

    Here are the 2 pictures I took of the fake before sending it off. Notice the low-quality finishing of the watch holder.

    Disagree!!

    Watched both videos and I am not convinced any Aquis shown is fake. Just my opinion, not having handled them.

    The watches look legit with any differences due to factory variations. This happens with Tudor and Rolex too.

    The boxes and watch holders may not be real, or possibly Oris uses several box makers, but nothing on the watches raises red flags to me.

    I plan to take the suspected fake into an authorized dealer here in Denver when I get it back from my friend. Why would a real watch be put in fake boxes?

    Have no idea, maybe they are not fake boxes, but supplied by different box makers. Factory variations. The books sure look real too.

    The movements are the key, and the SW200 appears to be real, making me think the whole Aquis is real.

    Please do. If you can, get pics of any noted discrepancies. On first glace at the two pics you posted, I don't see anything glaringly obvious that screams "fake" to me. But your pics aren't exactly ideal to do a comparative analysis with, and you still have protective wrap on the watch as well.

    In any case, I'd certainly be interested in knowing how it turns out in the end, and if it is a fake, how you're able to tell.
    Before you ask, yes, I've seen -45 degrees (both Celsius and Fahrenheit)

    I have 4 Oris all with SW200, 3 with display backs and 2 Aquis from the previous generation.

    The 3 red rotors I can see look like the ones in the videos, no writing or engraving in the red portion of the rotors. They look like the rotors in the video.

    What about the date wheel font though?

    Did you see the font on the date wheel? That looks totally wrong
