How can I tell that the guy will send the buyer the fake as opposed to the real one(if he has the real thing at all that is!)..Well I can't..Just a strong suspicion that's it..Why would he otherwise bother mixing real pics with the fake ones, albeit on a Tag picture and original box (which you can buy anywhere for £10 these days by the way)?
If your question was how can I tell some pics show fakes, well..Where shall I start..For example, notice how on some pictures, there are less graduations on the main blue dial than on the fake ones (take the first picture which shows an original to compare)..Or notice how the "Swiss Made" is suddenly right under the date as opposed to on each side of the bottom of the date windows..I could go on, but trust me, I have seen a few of these fakes around and that is one for sure..They look quite similar actually, but still, some poor guy is going to get a watch worth 30 singapore $ as opposed to a genuine tag..
