Maybe everyone should cut Hampton a bit of slack and let him sort out whether his watch is real or not. He stated its "his first Rolex" so perhaps he didn't know what to look for and got duped. If its not real hopefully he can get his $$$ back. I've spotted plenty of fake Rolexs, Cartiers, VCs, from newbies visiting TZ and Watchprosite etc. Sure some people were trying to pull something over the regular posters, others sadly got burned because they didn't know enough about the watch, until after they posted photos. I think for the most part people here post authentic watches. Hopefully, no one here feels they have anything to prove. Afterall, anyone could simply steal someone's photos from the net and post them pretend its their own. But what is gained from that? There are no real ownership impressions to share, the person can't share much about their research, or their purchasing experience. If its to impress people they never met, they are wasting their time. I'd like to think that everyone visiting this thread is here because they truly enjoy fine watches, whether they own a single watch or a collection that rivals most watch stores. So far most watches I've seen on this thread appear to be real and most of their owners seem to be good guys with great taste in watches. So lets move back to the topic of great watches. Below is a photo of one of my favorite dress watches. Its a rose gold manual wind 1972, which has an asymetic shape. I really like the curved case which hugs the wrist and the way they made the top of the deployant asymetric to mirror the case shape.
