Watch is real, but the strap is fake (Calf leather but labelled 'Croco').

Thanks everyone. I knew something didn't seem right. The engraving on the deployment clasp didn't look right. It's one of the best A23322 replicas I've seen though. Thanks again!

Someone's in for a shock when they find that chrono minute hand is frozen due to the datewheel modification
