    supermarine ?

    Hi all - I am a 'value buyer' and always wanted a Bremont. I just received a Supermarine in green, from ebay. 100% rated seller, described as 'new w/out tags.' It looks the part, but I am terrible at taking pics. Just got it today. Only small detail I am not thrilled with is that the 'day' of the date is just slightly offset to the right so far right of letter is not visible unless looked at from an angle. It is running strong, and so far is keeping very accurate time (24 hour period ending tomorrow, so far running just a bit fast but well w/in chronometer spec if calculated out. I paid $1,600 for it, and its subject to 14 days returns for any reason through ebay. Debating what to do.... hopefully can forget about this small detail and not get bugged by it. Thanks for any feedback.Name:  d.jpg

    The fakers haven't gotten the tone of the green right. And that green doesn't look right to me.

    I agree thanks for the info - back she goes for a refund.... also if you look at the bezel from an angle near the watch, you can see light and dark spots around the markings - lastly the rubber strap has a sweet almost chocolate smell to it - I know some fakers including breitilng bands add scent to the bands so the knock off rubber does not smell terrible - watch has also gained 5 secs in 15 hours

    I just bought a new Supermarine strap direct from Bremont a few weeks ago and I don't recall any scent associated with it.

    I’ve seen a number of those new without papers supermarines go on eBay over the past year and have assumed they are all fakes. They just started popping up all over the place about a year ago. I’d return if you’re not 100% confident

    Yep. All the fakes are on rubber straps. They also make the blue dial version.
