Rough Day for this Pawn Shop

Not sure how this pawn shop was fooled by this one. Ouch!

Wow. The very reason I would never trust a pawn shop

This watch may be one of these new trends where they are putting fake ceramic bezels bought off eBay, and putting them on real 116520's. I've seen reputable jewelers selling this "mod" as well. Horrible.

Right.. well this one isn't even a real 116520... not even close. I have informed them and have not heard a response. However, I am sure they are looking into it.

Ouch. The movement pic is not great, so I actually thought it might be a genuine 4130 for a second, but then the obvious jumped out at me.
A bit scary that these clone movements are getting so detailed though. Of course the abundance of other tells wouldn't even warrant the time/effort to remove the case back.

I'd hate to be the pawn shop employee (or owner) who paid out on that one!

Reported, and notified the seller.

Yeah, there's more fake here than just the bezel.

The clasp told me all I needed to know, the little arms of the flip lock flare out really bad.

Takes about 5 seconds to find who is selling these - same box, doesn't surprise me at all considering the watch and how hot the real deal is.

Not sure what you mean by "same box"... the box is the only thing genuine in the entire listing.

Doesn't look like a 2016 box to me - may be wrong, looks like they are trying to sell a Daytona C. The box on the fake that I found was the same as the box in the listing above.

Seems easy enough to fool that Pawn Shop. Bad for them.
