It was a different fake, I have all the pics of the other fake stored and there are some differences.

I've made a side by side comparison of some tell tales, for people who have problems recognizing a fake of this model.

Roff can we make this a sticky, these are notoriously hard to spot and that really helps !

Thanks Frans. That's great piece of work. Yes, you spotted some of the more subtle differences too, such as the corners of the dial numerals!. I couldn't find the internet article I mentioned before that does a side-by-side between a genuine and fake. But from memory, the only other significant difference is the B logo on the crown

Your welcome. ;)

I don't mind making more of these, preferably with some help of the experts.
However I don't realy know (yet) of which models there are difficult to spot fakes.
So I would need some directions in that.

That's very helpful, thank you. I don't know why I'm seeing this just now, I must have missed it before somehow.
