I honestly have no idea what you guys are talking about...

I can get why he would buy like 8 fake watches to impress girls and his buddies, but honestly, why post them on here. Does this dude not realize that some of this forums members own the real versions of those crap watches hes trying to show off and can tell the difference between a real and a fake? Seriously though like I said before, he probably paid at least $150 per watch. Multiply that by the 8 different watches hes posted already and it means he spent like $1200 on fakes. Why not just get one nice genuine watch for that price? Or 2 less expensive ones.

On cheap, fake Daytonas (and I'm sure many other watches with chronograph dials) the subdials 'work' but not in the way they are meant. Therefore, in pictures, all the hands are in seemingly random positions. For example; on a real Daytona, only the subdial at the 6 o'clock position would moving in normal wear, as a second hand. On fakes, the larger hand moves as a second hand rather than as it should – as a chronograph second hand. I could be making it sound like garbage, but I know I'm right (is that the SF curse?! ) Then again, maybe the guy is just a kingpin and seriously does have a ton of nice, pricey watches.

But if the chrono was running when the picture was taken, it would look the way you describe it.

This is undeniably "” if regrettably "” true.

You suggest he should be driving and trying to take a picture of his watch? Sounds pretty dangerous to me...

And I was pointing out that the subdials at 3 and 9 were above the horizontal axis like a real Daytona.
I didn't see anything about the Daytona that looked fake.

Very nice. Maybe I should get some photography hints as well!

IWC Here's mine at ... uhm Christmas. Ok, I need to take newer pictures. Although summer seems to be Rolex time for me. I visited California for the first time this June, here my Exp II in front of Fourtane of Carmel. Truly a must-visit shop if you're in the neighbourhood. Nice selection of vintage Rolex, barely made it out of there with my credit intact

So you're saying the Daytona is authentic, yet another guy is saying the Patek is clearly fake. Seems odd to me that he'd have a closet of authentic and a fake (or two).

I went to a dinner the other night and the host had about US$ 2,500,000 of watches in his little brief case, only 8 watches made up this amount.

One guy at the dinner was wearing a US$ 200,000 Harry Winston Opus 9, wow interesting watch if you like gems. There are some real watch nuts about in HK

FWIW, It's very difficult to tell good fakes from authentic in even the best of pictures. The tell-tale signs are often such minuscule, random details that are slightly off. So, the gentleman saying that Patek model just doesn't exist...if he's a knowledgeable guy then he's probably right. But most people who don't live/breath Daytonas or new ceramic Subs or whatever aren't going to know just from those pictures. Good fakes often cost $400+ and have their own following of people who spend much more money modifying them to make them look real. It's a very, very odd culture and the big fake watch forum they have has a Veyron and a yacht on the banner. Haha. Talk about irony. I know this because inevitably, half the watches you search for on google images will lead you to a fake watch forum. :-/

FWIW, my 3714 is not fake.

I'm not saying the Daytona is authentic. Who can really tell from a picture? I'm saying that there's nothing in the picture to lead me to believe it's a fake. With the new Daytonas (new being relative to the zenith movement ones), the centers of the subdials at 3 and 9 are above the horizontal axis. I doubt if there are counterfeits out there with that feature.
