Evening all,

I've been offered a Super Avenger 2 at what I think is a decent price, box, papers and digital warranty card dated 4/3/2017.

Here's a picture of the watch itself. The lume application looks a bit messy in parts. Is this normal?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Here's a pic of mine, your correct about the Lyme being off in between the bars it looked rounded off instead of straight clean lines, a little harder to see on mine but they are straight. Image

It could be just the angle of the picture, but it looks legit to me.

Lume does look sloppy but if it's a fake it's one of the best copies I've seen. Ask to see pics of the watch serial number, warranty card and COSC certificate to see if they match up.

To add the AR coating usually will be missing from rep models.

Fake for me. That lume of the battons is sooo bad.

The bezel is off too. The numbers and lines are too thick in spots.

The minute hand is supposed to be flat too.

PASS!!!

Even though you've been offered it with b&p, I also think that the lume is terrible. I pass on it for that reason alone

I agree with 1952. That lume is terrible. I haven't seen lume that bad before. I would avoid that watch. Even if it is legit I couldn't bare to look at it. Save yourself some heartache and hold out for now imo.
