    Newbie with Muhle Glashutte question...

    Good day to all. Newbie here interested in purchasing his first Muhle Glashutte Rasmus Dive Watch, or perhaps a Sinn U1. I really like automatic movements. Currently, my everyday watch is a Marathon GSAR. I find the looks of the Rasmus 1000m beautiful in a purely functional way, like the Sinn, but am concerned about accidentally purchasing a fake. A search of the web didn't really reveal any "tells" to watch out for when examining this model. However I did find a lot of info concerning replica Sinns. Can you guys help me out, what are some of the aspects of used Rasmus I need to be aware of? Thanks to all.

    Welcome to watchuseek.

    I don't know of any replica Rasmus. I could not mention anything in
    particular to look for. However, in general you should qualify the seller.

    The Marinus and Rasmus models use the same case. You might also
    look at the Marinus.

    The Seebataillon GMT is worth checking out.

    Welcome apf65.

    I'm not aware of any recent posts about fake M-G watches. Though I'm hardly an expert, it seems to me that fakes are often offered of watches with more name recognition, such as Rolex, Omega, Breitling, etc.

    It's been said here often: "buy" the seller before you buy their watch.

    Thanks guys. That Seebatallion is very nice looking for sure, I just don't require a GMT. The Marinus just doesn't do it for me, I'm certain it's a great time piece however.

    I didn't "get" the Marinus either until I saw it in person. Much more impressive in the metal than in photos.

    The dome on the crystal on the rasmus and weight plus Lume really appealed to me...I reckon it would be hard to fake a muhle....the workmanship and quality is top notch....
