Hi Guys, Found this on eBay, looks like a fake to me. Report if you agree.

Too hard to tell from these crappy pics and like I've said before the 166600 is the one the rep makers hv gotten closest to the real thing. Without better pics, or engaging the seller we are left to wonder even as shady as the backstory is! The old proverbial given as a gift therefore I don't have papers and box. Well, how'd they give it to you.......in a plastic ziplock baggy?

The bracelet appears off. Why is the center polished like that? Should be brushed. Also, if you look closely at the second photo the crystal appears to have a lip. That's incorrect. Fake in my opinion.

I agree with westsider that the centerlinks are not originally polished (they come brushed) from the factory, but that alone doesn't make it fake. I've seen PCL's from time to time as it dresses up a bracelet, but its incorrect according to how it comes originally. As far as the crystal, i saw that as well but pictures sometimes do funny things. I definitely lean towards fake with the totality of the hints, but ya just cant know unless you hold it, open it and put your eyes on it.
