I think my friend got scammed - Daytona, need your opinion
 
Hi All

My friend ordered a ceramic Daytona and now wants my opinion! Since it was an amazing deal!! I donít own a Daytona, sharing some pics. Let me know I think itís a fake, any inputs - will really appreciate it.

I hope I am wrong, here are the pics he sent me.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...664976f49b.jpg

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Hope your friend can get his money back.

MilesB 26 March 2020 03:46 AM

On first glance, the screw down on the pushers goes too far down, which backs up your theory that it's fake.

theflywrist 26 March 2020 03:46 AM

Horrible horrible fake..
I hope he did not wire yet or has used PayPal..

Xeer 26 March 2020 03:47 AM

Took 2 seconds.. Horology House has better fakes than that

Fake and not a good fake really bad one

Rado63 26 March 2020 03:54 AM

Why is it always the friend bought this watch? If advertised as an authentic Rolex, This watch has suspicious written all over it. If marketed as a replica, then it's 100% replica.

CKizzy 26 March 2020 03:54 AM

Case back is wrong, 24hr Daytona script is rare on early Daytona's without ceramic bezel...typical replica add!

Verify weight of watch, approx. 150 grams for stainless steel and 190 grams for WG, as most replicas are often 'light' due to inferior materials being used!

Does the second hand sweep or tick?

Box and paperwork match?

What the hell. Where and who sold that.

Agree I thought that the pushers were off the Daytona lettering was off the engraving on ceramic was off. That how far as I got. I hope he gets his money back! Will give my view to him, appreciate the help!!

Yup, I just cant believe how smart people get carried away! He could have just reached out to me and I would have helped him along with you guys. Its a pity, just got off the phone with him, still wont tell me where he got this and told me he will take care of things...too embarrassed I guess. Thanks again folks!

jcoltrane 26 March 2020 04:09 AM

The crystal, the case shape, the pushers, the subdials, the fonts, etc etc. It may be simpler to type what's correct on that fake.

I'm thinking he knew it was fake all along and just wanted to see if you could tell.

mjclark32 26 March 2020 05:05 AM

Def fake
Can't believe they're still doing the "winner" engravings :chuckle:

GGGMT 26 March 2020 05:10 AM

Funny! Glad to hear he got a great deal on it.

Juuuuuuunk

Morrison0 26 March 2020 05:41 AM

Though I didn't hear a chuckle at the end of the line when I told him that its a 100% bad fake, I might as well be the case. I couldn't believe that someone would fall for this. Maybe he has too much time on his hands nowadays!!

fooey 26 March 2020 06:05 AM

what did he/you pay for it?
$100?

crowncollection 26 March 2020 06:17 AM

No good tell him to return it ASAP

I do hope that your "friend" knows that he was purchasing a fake and didn't actually get scammed.

It was thoughtful that you were provided with so many pictures. :cheers:

Morrison0 26 March 2020 07:01 AM

It doesn't look anything like a real Daytona, unfortunately. I can't find a single detail they got right.
