    TH Grand Carrera 17RS2 Authenticity check

    The photos aren't the best but I thought I'd put them up here to get some feed back before I made an inquiry to the seller

    authentic or not?

    or do I need more photos?

    appreciate the help!

    It's a fake. Wrong movement and TAG never made an all-black bracelet with the RS2 since they only came on either a leather or rubber strap.

    Hey... I don't want to jump to conclusions but the movement and the geneva stripes appear correct... I think the bracelet could be aftermarket, either that or this is the best looking fake I've ever laid eyes on

    Movement is completely WRONG! The balance cock is a dead giveaway. Look here for Calibre 17 movement pic.

    it is obvious the movement is wrong the balance bridge on that cheap movement is a dead giveaway

    as the watch should have an eta 2894-2 which has no balance bridge.More a Etachron regulator.

    Its a fake without doubt. The case should be matt black and not shiny, logo in dial is incorrect, movement is wrong (blue scows and rotor), text on dial, red stripe on crown incorrect, text on case back unpainted..and the bracelet
