A quick google comparison raises suspicion. Kinda funny if you ask me, but how could the reporter know.

you know, the type that keeps the original in a vault and then hangs a replica or print on the wall at home. Trying to give the benefit of the doubt, but yeah, probably a poser...

Ok, here is why I am calling him out.

First off, look at the watch count 75....

Then look at said profession....

Besides, look at all the models named. They are all recent and or current models which means he bought all of them within the last 5 years??? Even more doubtful.

Someone will call him out eventually.... that's the problem with being published. Someone who really does collect will call him on his collection

You'll see the 6 & 9 don't match on his watch.

Also the P in Panerai is a normal P and not elongated as on the genuine model

The Panerai is so fake. Wrong lume color, blue AR tint, not plexi, wrong font... the list goes on. Instant fake watch. called him out under comments... don't wear watches that you can't afford.

I wouldn't be so hard on the guy...

First off I would not judge a book by its cover. This guy may not look like he has a 75 watch collection, but it would not surprise me if he did. His profession is simply listed as in pharmaceuticals, but there is good money in pharmaceuticals.

And he may not know that his Egizano is fake. I would think that most people who buy the watch would know the history and compare, but perhaps he got a "deal"...where his local watch dealer offered him a 22K watch for only 12K and he got caught up in the emotion of having a signature piece and got taken.

I'd be grateful to know why it's not the real deal, please.
And does the Porsche have any relevance? Just wondering.
Many thanks.

The pearl at 12 has a frame around it. Genuine doesn't

Ends of the 6 & 9 too far on the loop

Letter P in Panerai wrong font

Hands appear to be shorter (check hour hands and notice lengths). Luminous in minute hands also fall short of the genuine. Could be angle, but minute hand is telling
