Re: Need a laugh? Look at this fake Seamaster.

The scary thing is that this watch would be a decent fake if it wasn't for the chorine buttons, the tachymeter, and the wrong twelve o'clock marker. Look at the wave pattern. I haven't seen to many fakes that look like cheap pieces of plastic. Also look at the bracelet. Minus the wrong clasp, it appears to be very solid and smooth on the inside like the real thing. Some replica watch maker put a lot of time and effort into this one. This is also the only fake that I have seen where the second hand is the correct length. I can't believe that someone actually bid on this.

Best Regards,

: to the Rogues Gallery?

: What I liked best are the buttons to operate the chronograph,
: while there are no chronograph dials on the watch face. The
: outer rim of the face seems to be numbered too.
