    Does this look authentic?

    It looks good to me, but I don't know all of the details on some of the older models. I can usually spot a fake - but I'm not sure here. I think because it's hard to read the back and the blue dial seems to be a highly faked model.

    Xray - why do you say that? Just based on how old it is? I may have missed something in the description. Any idea about how old it is? I know the box is the previous version based on the snaps - and I know the 01-92 blue hasn't been made in awhile. If anyone had any experience with these - would you pm me a "fair" price - sorry mods if that is not allowed - but I'm not sure what a good price on this model is and don't want to over pay - I also don't want to keep trying to beat down to a price that is unrealistic.

    Thanks!

    Hey Joe,

    I think this watch is much loved, and at a minimum the insides has not being tampered with from the looks of the photos. If you look at the screws closely there are no marks on it, meaning no flathead has touched it, or at least not handled roughly by a rookie. There have being some second hand ones that I've seen that people have definitely taken a flathead to the screws which is a 100% no go for me, unless there is a official service certificate. The circular edges on the watch face has a bit of markings on it too. From my own experience with my 03-94 thats unavoidable when you wear it everyday, like i do. If its under a long sleeve shirt then i wouldn't expect that much but i'm guessing it was worn more with short sleeves and more outdoor compared to office wear.

    When i say history i mean i bet the owner wears it a lot and each scratch has its own story/history, and that shows on the photos.

    Just my opinion anyways. When in doubt ask for more photos? I can send you a link of a BR03 where you can clearly see someones taken a flathead to the screw to show you as an example if you like.

    Good luck with it mate. Really hope you get what you want.

    Thanks X-ray! I spoke with the seller - seems like everything is in order and you are right - it looks like it has been cared for. I think he may be a little high on price - and that's more because I want to spend less - not really because he is asking too much. I think for a piece that won't be my every day wearer - I'd rather spend less. I was actually hoping for an 03 with a blue dial... We will see, I'm still negotiating!
