    Most fake minute machines, the face is a dead giveaway, where the "Oakley and Swiss Made" dont have contrasting color, ie black face watch should not have black "Oakley and Swiss Made".. The crystal should reflect a blue hue when struct by sunlight. The "O" icon is a solid contrasting color. The hour and minute marker arms are beveled and not flat....The crystal face is mounted directly up against the watch bezel and there is no visible gasket between the glass and watch..... Just a few to mention....

    Except maybe for SKU: 10-191? Because the "Oakley and Swiss Made" is the same color of the watch's face. Can you confirm please? Thanks!

    The easiest way I've found to spit a fake is look at the sides of the case. Fakes have very obvious flat spots or cuts in the case between the crown and chrono buttons as well as the same flat spots between the 3 bumps on the other side of the case.
