i bought 5512 with serial 693620 from private collector from japan with help of one of my good friends in singapore. we was wondering about no gap between dial and rehaut and little strange serialnumber engraving.
now after some opinions from other guys and my recherche it is excellent fake case. here are some results and comparison after purchase of this watch:

http://www.network54.com/Forum/207673/m ... +%21%21%21

i bought this watch because serialnumber just 22 numbers less then fake case.
here are my results:



















here are measurements of both cases. that explanes no gap between dial and rehaut in fake case:













that was dial without gap in fake case:



now in real case with gap:



watch out always and compare with other watches, fake cases are getting better too...
thanks for attention

thx for sharing the story and the details. Nobody would have regarded this case as a fake if he just hold it in his hands.

Great info, mate!

...have other proof aside from the rehaute diameter? Maybe a closer scan of the serial number (but even then it might have been re-engraved)?
Not trying to be contrarian but would just like to see more evidence because if true, this would be damn scary.
Best regards,
Tom
