    how could you guys tell? Was it from the movement when opened or just on its face alone? It looks so genuine... but Im a novice so I dont even know what to look for...

    Both. Fonts are wrong on the face, the back as someone mentioned before is completely unfinished and is also unsigned.

    No, imho. It's not terrible, but there are much nicer options.

    Many! You name it! Would you like to try some! No seriosly, why would you ask a vet something like that( no need to answer,just leave it be)? In person I would insult you to the highest degree! And I dont care if you are a vet yourself! Thanks for crossing lines you shouldnt!

    Just to echo everyone else...Sinn no doubt. Doxa can be fun, but id still pick a sinn.


    Man, i cant tell you how much i wanted one of those. I used to stop by the jewelry store near my job when i was in high school at least once a week. I still think about getting one just to fulfill that boyhood desire haha.


    yep. 100% fake.

    It's truly impossible to beat the original bracelet for this watch, but it's nice to have options. Of my 20 mm straps, I'm thinking these might be two of the better alternate candidates...

    I'm not so sure that IWC is a "fake." It clearly states the watch was a pocket watch, and finishing was not common in pocket watches at the time. I am by no means an expert but people are hastily jumping to conclusions. Its a franken something but does not claim to be anything else.

    There is something about those Reverso's on tan ostrich that is absolutely AWESOME. Probably one of my favorite combos.

    Also, that may be the fakest IWC I have seen in quite some time. The IWC font is way off, it is usually thinner, and more refined. Also, the movement is a dead give-away. Unless they pulled a Panerai, IWC would not let something like that leave the factory.

    Thanks, me too. It's my go-to on the Reverso; I love NOMOS's shell cordovan.
