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.

007 Seamaster


This is strange. I have been doing some research on the omega 007 and found 2 postings that seem too ggod to be true. The first thing is that both listings use the same pics. I ahve also seen some others on Ioffers that use those pictures. ALso the ioffers watch has "smuugled from omega Switzerland" on the posting. Now when I researched the feedbacks of the sellers and buyers of the items on both sites there were
some corresponding names. It all seems kind of fishy, but I am really interested in the watch. I assume that these are reassembled watches made with separate omega parts. Is there any chance that these could be the real deal. It is interesting that one site has the watch for 300 and the other has it already bid up to over 860 and it has the same picture. thanks in advance for your help
