Counterfeit Watchers Discussion Forum

A forum for identifying and avoiding wholly or partially non-authentic wristwatches -- including counterfeit, replica, Frankenwatches and other fake or bastardized pieces. Our objective here is to DISCOURAGE the sales and purchase of counterfeit wristwatch and jewelry products. It is also for helping people identify watches that are mostly authentic, but have been: altered for personal customization, repaired with inappropriate parts or modified to be passed off as more valuable pieces.

Including a photo of the piece you are talking about ALWAYS helps! You can learn how to post a photo here: How To Include Photos In Your Postings. 'For sale' postings, commercial solicitation and ads are not allowed. Links to Internet auctions are acceptable only if their purpose is to question the authenticity of a product or provide new clues for identifying counterfeit products. Links that appear to be 'shills' promoting the sale of counterfeit products will be deleted. Links to websites of sellers of counterfeit items are not permitted -- we know they are out there and do not need to be encouraging them by sending traffic to their sites. Privacy, additional policies and administrivia are covered in the Terms of Use.

: People have been ordering things by telephone

: And if that store does not have a physical

: Internet dealers.

Thx for letting me know of this.

: That is an extremely common thing. Just search
: the OMEGA Forum on *this* site for terms
: like clasp scratch and you'll find this
: has been covered many times with lots of
: good answers.

actually i found a lot of answers on how to fix my watch, But what i m not sure , is what kind my clasp is? Because people say to treat differently the shiny part of the Stainless steel than the brushed part. On my watch it seems like both parts are shiny but one shinier than the other. Or maybe one is brushed and the other shiny. Im just confused on this and i want to know what kind my bracelet is. Thx!

the link to the topic i posted the picture is:

there is another link with multiple high resolution pictures i posted in a website.
