    I just got those in. I thought it would be easy to see if they are real or fake, but i guess that isn't ;)
    I compared them to lots of other minute machines on internet. I readed the other thread about the
    fake minute machine, but i'm still not sure.
    I asked a friend of mine about his minute machine. He says that there is no serial number in his
    watch either. I added some pics. I hope u can tell me more about it :).
    I got it without tags.

    (i tested to scratch the display with a key, but there is not a single scratch on there!!!)

    It could just be the pic quality or the camera, but the red finish and the silver bolts on the side of the red do not look quite right to me...

    I have to say that in real the red color looks a bit darker red. the silver bolts look like chromed..

    You scratch the Display with a key- for a test?
    Why did`nt you use a hammer, to check out if it is Titanium?

    Sorry, kidding...

    hehe, yeah i tested it. If it would be a fake one, i guess the display will get some scratches from the key.

    But in fact the display feels and sounds preciesly the same when scratching on it with a key as when i try
    it on my oakley gearbox watch...(there is not a single scratch on both after the test) So that is a fact that makes me think it's real.

    But still, i'm not sure yet. Hope that somebody has an idea how to test or see it for sure?!?

    if you are still sceptical put them on a scale!
    the right weight for them should be:
    190 g
    6,7 oz
    2920 gn
    950 ct
