    On another watch forum a member pointed out two really good fakes on a well known worldwide watch site
    One was actually by a “trusted seller”.
    So try to be careful when you are hunting for your next loved one...
    Buy the seller but also be careful and ask for plenty of photos...
    Cheers

    "Pictures or it didn't happen", goes the saying.

    I think this is a situation where plenty of pictures should be asked for.

    Even with plenty of pictures you need to know the watch quite well and have done lots of research
    These fakes were/are quite good

    Since this is the good advice section I'd like to say that It's also a good idea to pay attention when crossing the road.

    Can there be a less useful thread?

    Will you kindly provide a link to the thread where the discussion is taking place?

    considering some of the replies (and the tone of them) you are probably right.
    My mistake starting this thread and trying to slightly contribute to the forum
    Have a nice evening

    I mean, if you insist on knowing the details....

    I just got off a 2.5 hr flight and was waiting on the shuttle to get to the hotel that was about 10 min away.
    was feeling a little uncomfortable on the plane but not in a bad way and by the time I got my bag and went to curbside I thought it had gone away.
    However while I was standing there I decided to, uh, purge the escape valve, so to speak.
    We were almost code brown. Had to hurry to find the bathroom.
    I was successful. Until I went back out and saw the shuttle pulling away...
