    BEWARE: Fake Tag Heuer Models on eBay WITH Paperwork

    Here is an example of a Tag Heuer WAY2012 that I purchased on eBay and it turned out to be fake.

    It came with matching paperwork that was faked which is quite scary when considering purchasing a watch from the secondary market.

    You can tell the difference against the real thing.....dial color is off, magnification of date is off, color and size of bezel numbers are off, size of pearl is off, and caseback is thicker in profile.

    The fake one has the hangtag on it.

    Why I don’t bye from the gray market. And why I work for an AD that sells Tags!

    Thanks for the heads up... It's a pretty good looking counterfeit, very difficult to determine from a photo.

    Re: BEWARE: Fake Tag Heuer Models on eBay WITH Paperwork

    I have received one today in the UK.
    Initially nothing struck me as fake (had a few Tags as well as other brands in my life as well as had a few super reps in my hands), but when I left the office I thought "hmm it's more like gunmetal blue sort of like blue SOHII".
    I have checked photos of this model on Tag and other websites and they do appear to be blue rather than clearly grey markers on the bezel.

    Wow -

    Do these fakes wear a serial #? If so are they all the same number? Any pics of the serial on the caseback?

    Fingers crossed you purchased with PayPal and are protected, I’m still amazed at the quality of some of the fakes floating around.

    This is the scary part. They appear to have random serial numbers with matching paperwork. The hangtag is eerily similar to the real Tag Heuer paper tags with all numbers matching.

    I could show you at least 5 sellers at this current time that have fake TH models listed on eBay that all have matching paperwork.

    This is the not the first loser I have dealt with on eBay so the return process is proceeding.

    Dial seems to be the first easy give away as dial print is clearly not delicate like the genuine one.

    I had said about the bracelet gaps, but upon looking again that’s just not the case, and it’s a rather good copy.

    I think without your close up analysis most people would be none the wiser which was the fake, but side-by-side it’s the dial that gives it away with text print and texture.

    Not easy to tell off of photos on eBay though, and hope you get your money back.
