He wanted 200 and was literally only down the road so I went to have a look and a laugh.

I wasn't on a strap as the rubber one had snapped so it was just watch and buckle in a PP box.

Initially upon seeing the watch I was pretty shocked and surprised. I wasn't even aware there was a fake market for Aquanauts. If I hadn't owned an Aquanaut I'd have been amazed. Other than the detail in the finish of the case and the movement and its thickness its really pretty decent. I told him it was a fake and that genuine Aquanauts are about 30k at the moment, he didn't seem surprised.

Told him I'd give him 50 for it for novelty value , he declined and before I'd driven off his drive he said he'd take 100 so I took it.

It won't ever get worn but it is an amusing item to have. I am going to test a couple of friends who think they know a thing or two about watches.











Thrown on a Timefactors NATO for a wrist shot.




Couple of the real thing for comparison.








The genuine 5167 is super sleek and it looks as though there isn't any glass on it at all.

So watch out folks fakes are getting better and better!
Was the seller a Pharmacist?
