    Is this Police watch real or fake?

    Hello,

    Just saw this Police watch up for sale by a guy in my city. This is a used piece but he says it has never been used much and is like new. He is making an irresistible sale offer. He is offering it for $20 and he says that he paid thrice the price when he bought it. He bought it from Singapore. I really like the watch but am concerned it might be fake. I have never used Police watches before. How do you identify a fake Police watch? Below are the pictures he posted

    A fake Police watch ? Never ever heard ? Fake and original would be priced the same though.

    Since I've never heard of that as a brand? (and it $20?) I'm quite certain it doesn't matter. It has a 50 cent Chinese movement, was assembled by children chained to a work bench in Vietnam, and will probably turn your wrist green if the humidity is over 50%, if it doesn't give you blood poisoning first.

    (and it's broken - judging from the date being stuck between flips...but other that the above issues? It looks great!)

    Hey, its not what you think. Police is a decent Italian brand. They don't make $20 watches. They originally made sunglasses. See link below

    Some of their watches are really good. You might want to check them out! See link below

    Sorry to correct you. As Wikipedia correctly states Police is an Italian manufacturer of fashion accessories. Launched in 1983, the company was initially specializing in designing sunglasses. However you are wrong assuming Police watches are made by Police.
    Even Police sun glasses are not made by Police, but by some PLB in the Cadore valley.

    Police really good ? Compared to what ?
    Kind regards

    Have you actually used/held/changed a battery or strap on a police watch?
