    Sold by "pezos like jeff" :confused:

    Prices too good to be true, I think there is hugh risk you will receive some fake shit :thumbsup: as always, buy the seller and a deal too good to be true always is just that, too good to be true.

    Like Jim said, don't waste your money. Fakes are too good to spot these days, and the AD won't be any use either. Either buy from an AD, an outlet or pre-owned from a proper place like Watchfinder. And if you can't afford it, then buy something else, better a genuine Seiko than a fake TAG Heuer.

    Reviews on the listing mention fraudulent behavior.
    Often things that are too good to be true are not.

    Thanks for the advice. I though with Amazon you can at least return it for free if its not real, but if its that hard to spot a fake that may not be an option.

    Sadly, the Aquaracer fakes are now so good you have to take them apart to be sure, and even then you need to know what you're looking for. Mostly I wouldn't imagine you are buying direct from Amazon anyway, so the protection is never as good. Plus, if you get a fake that's too good to spot, how do convince Amazon?

    You don't really have to convince Amazon, with Prime you just return it for free within 30 days.

    I ended up getting a used one from a local classifieds, paid $750 CAD (About $580 US) with box + papers. Originally purchased from a local Jewelry chain https://www.maisonbirks.com

    Pictures don't really do it justice. Thanks for all your help.

    I saw a youtube video reviewing an F1, in the comments there was the usual 'buy it from Amazon' link - and then you look at the comments and people are saying it's fake. Just don't go there.
