Genuineness of a Tudor sub

    Hello,

    I find myself more and more attracted to Tudor Subs.
    However the fact that they feature an eta movement coupled with the Rolex influence makes them watches often forged.

    I came across an example and being new to these watches, wanted your opinion :coffee:

    It is a reference 79090. The watch comes with box and papers which comforts me on its genuineness but those elements can be faked as well.

    Personally, I don't see any warnings by comparaison with photos of original 79090s: the case, bracelet and dial all seem ok but my eye isn't accustomed to this reference.

    Please share your worthy thoughts :)
    Thanks

    I'm not an expect, but I do have a 79090, and this one looks to be in fantastic shape, and nothing about it would give me any pause.

    I agree but I have been feeling (digging,into) several new Tudor offerings I think they are well made and reasonably priced but yeah, this is beyond the couple I was checking out. My buddy loves his BB58 though

    Just some news about this watch, might be useful to someone :
    I didn't bid and the auction ended at ~6800e without import tariffs (the auction is in Japan and the customs fees depend on where you are based (22% where I am)).

    If you take one genuine watch next to a fake one, you'll see that they will glow differently. Since fake watches use a lower quality luminous material.

    As does the case. Appears to be virtually unpolished.

    People faked a tutor sub to that level and it’s in that good a shape 30 years later?
