I'd be 99 rather than 100% confident on this one.

There is a VERY good replica of this watch which has 3 tells...
1. E6B dial, as usual, doesn't line up correctly
2. Date indicator doesn't line up correctly
3. No AR coating

On this watch , the E6B dial is fine which would usually be enough for me. However, the date indicator does not seem to sit squarely over the 14 (but this could be due to parallax) and there seems a lack of AR coating (which again could be down to bad photography).

Based on the fact this seller has impeccable feedback and a dozen or so other watches for sale at the moment, mostly with papers, I'd say this was OK. However, I do wonder why someone who is selling $50,000 of watches can't afford a half decent camera! The investment would pay for itself with the higher prices achieved very quickly.

The seller looks genuine (as does the watch, given the quality of the pics), and as we always say "buy the seller".

Looks like the real deal, but I'd like to see better pictures of it!
