Did I just buy a fake watch?

I posted a picture of my new 116613LB on the General topics forum and got some feedback that it was not real.

I guess this sub forum is better. Can you guys please take I look?

The first picture is taken inside whit my phone. I posted new ones a few posts down in better lightning.

No you did not. Everything looks fine!

The cyclops could be slightly misaligned but in other pictures it looks fine. I have also noticed that with my watches, in certain angles the cyclop looks misaligned when it is not.

no problem it happens to all of us. It usually happens to me when I accidentally ding my watch on a hard surface.

Same here. All of them look misaligned depending on the angle at which it is viewed.

Looks good but maybe crystal was replaced and slightly twisted?

Genuine.

See if you can find the laser etched crown, could the be that the crystal needs to be realigned.
