I have always liked pannys, but i thought they where too big! Now they have come out with a more proper sized models, just when I can't afford it :-(

I have gone to tourneu, but they dont have all the models; check watchbuys,com!

Can you base that on something? While it may be fake, why don't you substantiate it instead of making accusations?

What, besides the ill-fitting quartz movement and completely incorrect subdials? It's obviously fake just from looking at it, and I don't even pay attention to Hublot.

That is clearly a fake watch with a quartz movement. The chrono subdials are too close just like quartz and unlike ETA7750 that the watch is based on. There are other issues with the subdials and the watch in general.

^^ Thank you. I've no means of verifying, but at least you've stated your case which should have happened from the start.

Ah, my faulty assumption — I figured it was so evidently fake that it was one of those prima facie-type deals, just like the Submariner posted earlier.

Not to most, I think. I would never know. Bet Hampton is regretting that post shog[1].gif and then the follow on:

I was looking a little while ago and found that authorized dealers in Germany/Austria (not Nomos direct) had the best prices

That Folex Sub was horrible as is that Hublot.  But hey, he's still got the AP.....   fing02[1].gif

Can we get a fact check on this one?

can you link the pic? im fairly well versed in spotting them.

*edit* nevermind...found the pic...ill do a quick rundown

the rehaut is so thin its almost invisible. Much thicker on the gen.
font on the date is WAY off
crown/lugs are a bit mis shapen
crown isnt nearly as sharp as gen
the engraving on the buckle is wrong. when you look at the gen buckle its much darker.
see how the "10" on the bezel is chipped off? ceramic doesnt chip.
bezel divots are too rounded
case is stamped 18K. on a stainless steel watch.
pearl is mis shapen.
back case ridges are far too rounded. should be VERY sharp and clean.

these are just a few things that stand out. If i could actually hold it, i could name a dozen more.
