Hello from snowy Scotland! Recently bought this 2014 Navitimer 46 off of what seems to be a reputable dealer on ebay, (member since 2003, 100% feedback selling high end watches) complete with all papers and electronic warranty card, advertised as "unused" and it still has all the plastic protection on the case etc. Looks legit to me, however I have sent it away to be valued and authenticated for insurance reasons and peace of mind. Four weeks is a long time, can someone confirm that it is indeed real? It would at least put my mind at ease, the thought of having to try get my money back is a bit daunting.
thanks in advance

Thanks! Yeah good idea, however I am quite impulsive and impatient! What are the key details that makes everyone so sure it's the genuine article? To me the quality is exceptional, in most lights the crystal is near invisible, the printing is also mint, as is the steelwork

experts on the forum know better than i do, but a couple of this are:
- obviously matching serial numbers on watch and ppw,
- date font and date not being sunk in the date window,
- 60 and 10 fitting between bezel and outer dial,
- neat/square lume dots,
- right length of red on the "GMT" arrow,
- and much more...

but relax, you're good!

cheers,
PG

Hi
Not wanting to be too pedantic but this is a 'World' not a 'GMT'.
Both beautiful either way.

hi,

pedantic is like pregnant... you are or you are not! :lol:
there's no such thing as "a little pedantic" or "too pedantic"... :wink:

but of course you are right, it's a navitimer world!

cheers,
pg

Mmmmh, you're (too) pedantic: the title says Navi 46 and, obviously, it isn't a Navitimer 46 ..... but it's a 46mm watch !! :mrgreen:
I told "Enjoy with your new GMT" and not "with your Navitimer GMT" ..... simply !! :uplaugh:
