Model 114060 - Ceramic Bezel

I have been talking with a gentleman here in Greenville, SC who has this watch for sale. He is willing to meet at the local AD to confirm authenticity but he is the second owner which seems a little odd for a 2014 watch. Thanks in advance.

Positives all looks ok.
My feeling genuine

I wouldn't be concerned with 2 owners in 3 years, I seldom keep any watch more than a year.

No one can authenticate with those photos. It passes the "10ft with one eye closed" test, but that doesn't mean its real.

The string on the hang tag doesn't look right, and that's a known tell on fake accessories, but everything else looks ok so it might just be a white balance issue on the camera.

I think it's worth pursuing and getting authenticated.

Thanks for the response. I have him down to 6200.00 for the watch which I think is a pretty good price. I am going to check it out. If it is not right luckily I am headed to Paris next week and will see if we can find one a nice sub there.

Sounds good. Make sure you meet at an AD
AND PAY there or a bank with witnesses

AND, make sure the watch that was authenticated never leaves your sight! There was another thread a while back where the the buyer discovered quite some time after the purchase was concluded that the watch he received was not the one that was authenticated in his presence!
