    Confused Is this Armani watch real or fake?

    Hello I recently purchased a ceramic Armani watch AR-1451 from a somewhat trusted Ebay seller he had over 1k Reviews at 100%. The price was very cheap at £112 while in other stores online it goes for £200-£500.
    I will be posting pictures please let me know what you guys think, if it's real or not ect.

    Thanks

    Hello Eddio and watchuseekers,

    Don't mean to hijack your thread here but I think I may have bought an armani watch at the same dealer. Everything looks identical, does the bottom of the inner-box have these stickers aswell? (see image)

    I've heard armani watches are made in china so this could not be anything out of the ordinary.

    Anyways, I hear watchuseekers aren't big fans or expert's on armani watches but I'll be monitoring this thread to see if someone answers. Otherwise bring it to a watchmaker who can have a look 'under the hood'.

    Greetings,

    There are a lot of these coming from china, some have chinese movements, some have the same Japanese movement as the originals pretty much impossible to tell 100% unless you got it from an authorised dealer then you would know it is genuine

    Imho you can't distill from a box Made in China if the watch is fake or real. A stroll through Baselworld would tell you that a great percentage of watch/jewellery boxes are made in China (or India), based on the number of boothes.

    I've contacted Armani to see if they can trace the serial number. I do not know whether this is a service they provide or not but thought it was worth a shot. Armani watches seem to be "serviced" (manufactured) by Fossil watches so maybe they can trace the manufacturer.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Yes, most of the Armani watches are made in China, except for a few swiss-made Armani watches introduced last year from a new product line, by which Armani aims to seize a niche market of the middle-class.

    Hey guys. In my opinion only - armani watches arent very expensive so arent really faked to this extent ie. With boxes and papers as well.
    You will get the cheap obvious thialand rip offs but i dont think youd get too many people faking them with all the other stuff you have got. They also dont hold their value well.
    Id tend to think you got a real one.

    Just checked mine. The certificate and book look the same. And box very similar.
    - id say with 98% confidence it would be real
