Is this Luminor Marina fake?

Hello there!

I have been offered a Panerai Luminor Marina from a business which was closed many time ago with a lot of gadgets inside, including some old watches. It is not in my hands, just received some pics.
Price would be almost symbolic so IMO worth it to check its authenticity. On the one hand, the weird circumstances tell me that it would be odd that this watch should not be authentic but having a look at the photos and diving into the Internet, I do not find this exactly model, with a transparent case. I am affraid it is a fake: I do not see the serial number or model and just has “Swiss” instead of “L Swiss L” or “Swiss Made” under 6 number.

Do any of you help me to check if indeed it is a fake? Or, contrary to my belief, it could be authentic?

Thank you very much and kind regards.

FWIW, I have a titanium watch, and that doesn't have the look of titanium to me.

If that’s not fake, I’ve learned nothing here.

Why are they trying to sell you a 100% genuine fake panerai?

Because the owner has no idea about watches. Just found it along with many other useful and useless items.

Obvious fake. With all due respect, any WIS worth his salt could tell this is counterfeit just from looking at these pictures.

Is this Luminor Marina fake?

I know nothing about Panerai but the pics are clearly of a $100-200 watch. My Weber grill stainless has nicer finish than the movement.
