    Hi all Seiko Alpinist SARB017 back in rotation. I haven't worn this for a while, but it is quite captivating when the light catches the sunburst. Slightly smaller than my usual wear at 38mm.

    I binned pb for Flickr - big improvement and not too time consuming to do did someone say quartz? Still trying to find a decent 18mm strap that will take a 14mm buckle, but isn't very thick as it won't clear the watch case if it is a thick leather

    Bought through the Sales section, a big thank you to It'Salivejim and, of course, Roy :-) At 40mm bezel diameter it is the biggest watch I own and I was a bit worried that I would be swamped by it. However, the strap is actually remarkably comfortable and seems to flow off the lugs beautifully, in such a way that it wears smaller than one would think. Im also loving the "Root Beer" colour; having only seem this in pictures I did not appreciate how great it really looks! Not too garish or in your face, just refined, subtle and a refreshing change from blacks and blues! Im going to experiemnt with a few leather straps I have, see if I can marry the colours... J

    Oh no, you can't catch me out like that, I'm not even going to look. I remember the last time I followed a heads-up on here, it cost me a chunk of my hard earned money...

    Last Christmas, I sold a Steinhart, but the very next day it was on ebay. This year, to save me from tears, I'm selling on classified adverts...

    A good guide would be to look at the price ticket. If it's too cheap, that will be the biggest giveaway An alternative is to post a few photos on here, preferably with the case back opened. Our experts will spot a fake a mile away, and if you send it to them they will even take a hammer to it, free of charge

    lol can never save enough. Its good to see more watch stores being open there. I remember when only Tag was around but now there's some real watch making brands you wouldn't normally see in outlets. Problem is I get about 10 minutes to look at the watches and 10 hours in clothes and bags shops with the MRS.

    Nope, Bulova Precisionist, otherwise known as "The Davey P" I would post a pic, but everyone must be sick of it by now (plus, the internet connection at work is shockingly slow, so PhotoBucket is even worse than normal...)

    There's no substitute for experience, handling the real thing all the time means that you get a good feel for what is right or wrong. As a general rule the quality of fakes is less, the weight can be wrong, they might use split pins instead of screws in the bracelet, a pop on back instead of a screw on one or the printing on the dial may be shoddy. There is no single thing to look for it could be a combination or in the case of the very best fakes it may be that the only way to be sure requires removal of the back and a good look at the movement. Watches with gold in them are often the easiest to spot as fakes because an experienced eye easily spots the difference between solid gold and gold plating (especially if its worn) Familiarity with the model is really the best defence, if you know exactly how it should be you spot it when its wrong...there can be no answer to your question that can give you the x, y and z.

    This could snowball (appropriate for someone who obviously likes the white stuff) with watch nuts around the world adopting the name for that watch. You could become famous or maybe that should be infamous

    That's very kind Alan, but I have some of these. It is the 14mm buckle end that is harder to find - Cousins have some, so I need to build up an order to make the postage worth while.
