I don't know if the piece is 100% authentic either, but at a certain price level it doesn't really matter if you like the looks of the watch... I mean, if you really like the looks of the watch (I do btw), and you can get over the fact it has a 7733 or a 7734 movement (not my first choice, but) if one can walk away which her for say $200-225 it overcomes a lot of reluctance about it's originality... At a low price it's an interesting watch to wear/own and can be a good learning experience. If it get's too pricey, then it looses that charm.
