    ^ Oh man. Could it possibly be legit? (I'm not good at spotting fakes..), but zero feedback, a cringeworthy description and a too good to be true price...

    Would be interesting to have a Panerai expert call out the flaws, if any are immediately visible. Paging @DerekS ...

    well, one big assumption is the seller actually has the watch and not some lifted pictures. Assuming that the wares for sale are indeed pictured, fakes usually fail at the crispness of the pointed edges of the 2 in 12 and 3. And the fakers can't seem to get the lume right. It glows a different color when compared to the original.

    Exactly; there's no guarantee that you won't just receive a bag of rice — this literally happened on a forum recently — instead of the pictured watch.

    I wasn't sure if it was worth it but the "Native belt still in very good condition" !


    As to the Globemaster. I really liked the original in pictures but left me a little cold on the wrist.

    I am a huge Omega fanboy and especially (and maybe because) of the old Constellation. The Globemaster was close, but just a little awkwardly proportioned (and I could do without the day counter). The one pictured above is just hideous. As someone noted above, Rolex did a much better job with the Skydweller, although that, too is hideous.

    Saw this guy out at a watch gathering earlier this week. A rare bird considering the Tiffany & Co stamp
