    Real or Fake Aquaracer??

    Hey guys,
    I was browsing Tags online and came across this Aquaracer for a good price. Just wondering if it's real before I pull the trigger?

    Although it looks good, I've seen very good replicas of this model. Buy the seller!!!

    Why do you have doubts?

    Have to buy the seller. I am not sure about this one - looks pretty good, but I'm not totally convinced.

    I would absolutely avoid. There is an epidemic of fake Aquaracers on the market right now and they are very very good replicas. Even buying the seller isn't working with these models as I was sold a fake a few weeks back by only the most reputable member on another watch forum. I was instantly refunded my money for the record.

    Regarding the watch you posted, first off the Pip is mounted incorrectly. As far as I know, brand new Tag Heuer watches do not come wrapped in clear plastic like all these replicas do.

    Also the letter "A" the word CALIBRE appears to be a tell, the font is different. The angle of the A is a wider angle then the genuine if I'm explaining myself properly.



    Did you run the serial number here?

    I would avoid.

    I had a good look yesterday and compared it with my own where i could, as mine is an older model.
    My watch had blue cellophane or whatever it is, on it when it was new from a Tag Heuer boutique in Manchester.
    If it's a fake, it's a frighteningly good one.

    Take this speculation for what it is worth.....tag cases, dials, bezels, hands, crystals.....everything but the movement are made in Asia, so the real tag and those with non-swiss movements are impossible to tell apart without an expert examining the movement.
    Today would be a good day to delete your Facebook account:

    Here is why:

    Is this an eBay purchase? I almost pulled the trigger on one there, luckily when I “bought the seller” and he got all uppity with me, I thought better and ended up buying from an AD. This one Looks amazingly legit though.
