What about this red SD?

Hi guys!

I’m more a vintage guy so I have no clue bout those modern things...Pretty sure it’s fake considering the pricing but the seller’s behavior is not what I would expect from a crook so...
Tried to watch videos comparing real to fakes but I got lost in the process



Thanks!

To me it doesn’t look right but won’t go in to specifics. A serial number search may lead you to the answer. If it’s commonplace and a known fake s/n then you have your answer.

100% fake. Magnification is off, the print size of the '24' is WAY too small and doesn't fill up enough of the window, and too much space between the links. I wear a 126600 almost every day.

EDIT: I don't have enough posts to attach a picture, but I DM'd you one of my watch.

Thanks!

I had a general feeling it was off, didn’t give a « Rolex vibe » somehow without being able to tell why...

That watch looks good for me but it would be terrible if it is really fake

A fake watch recently become better and much better and hardly to be spotted as fake

Fake. Go with your gut not the sellers demeanor.

Watch has some red flags
Serial number reported as fake
