    Hey guys, first post here. I'm in grad school, so my watch collection isn't anywhere near as high end as some of the examples here (I remain eternally jealous of everyone sporting these JLC's and AL&S [​IMG]), but here is the one I'm wearing right now:

    Hey guys,

    Wondering if I can get your expertise on this watch. I am wondering if it is authentic and what model it is if possible. And if it is an authentic piece, what strap recommendations do you have to suggest!

    Thanks! :)

    i'd not buy it even if it is real, the watch is too small... its perfect size for a girl's wrist in modern times

    ^ Impossible to tell if it's authentic from that pic. If it's cheap enough I wouldn't worry too much about it's authenticity.
    It looks vintage and as jv points out, it'll wear small today. A lot of guys like a smaller watch so you should get what appeals to you. I'm reugularly lambasted with crys of 'too big' for showing a Panerai here.
    A dark brown gator or croc strap would look good on it.

    I'm definitely sure it isn't vintage, and pretty certain it's fake.
