    Advertised here, real or fake?

    Hi All,
    Can you please take a look on the following watch?
    Is it looks real for you?
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f31/mon...e-2060042.html

    I`m negotiating with the seller here but i`m afraid as it doesn`t looks 100% for me..
    I Looked at some references with same Ref# and see that the Calibre that engraved on the movement is engraved different.. Cal. MB(R) - the R is different in the other watches I see..
    The Screws on the Caseback and the rotor not aligned and maybe already opened.


    Is this seems to be real MB for you?

    Thank you very much!

    That looks legit. Just a head's up that strap is not the OEM that came with the watch, looks to be aftermarket, if you care about that. That's a tremendous price on the watch since new ones go for over 10k now. I would take him up on the offer and get it authenticated at a boutique.

    Edit: one other thing, I've seen that first picture in the post before... somewhere. The cufflink and the Versace leather thing stands out.

    If its a fake, its an outstanding one.
    Dial I can see no issues at all.

    Here is a movement and some differences, but in my opinion, 'genuine'

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Mont...luRNK1cGuwM%3A

    Its 100% genuine
    ENJOY

    The problem here is that he agrees only for cash meeting... Hope I`ll be able to meet him soon.

    Thanks again for both, you really help me

    No expert here and am an owner of a NR Rising Hours. I must say you can't be careful these days especially with the exceptionally good fake watches out there. Also, if you're open to getting a gray market one, you can probably get a brand new one in the $6k range. So depending on what price you're getting this one for, I actually suggest paying a little more for the peace of mind.

    What an exceptional price for an exceptional time-piece, as long as it is Genuine. It looks Genuine, or at least, that particular watch in those pictures. All the Best, if you do purchase it and it is indeed a Genuine Mont Blanc. I have handled one of these and it is lovely!

    the seller says that "It can be checked for authenticity at the official Montblanc Boutique", so go to an official Monblanc to check before you pay.
