Does anyone know if...

  1. Does anyone know if Michele Ultimate Pave watches have been faked? If so, what can I look for to help me determine authenticity?

    Thanks!
     
  2. You would probably need to study one in a store to know what to look for. Most fakes I've seen are easy to spot. One obvious sign is how the diamonds are set. If they look glued in, or have no flash, that's a red flag for sure.
     
  3. I have a michelle diamond watch. I will try to help you if I can. Do you have a pic of the watch in question
     
  4. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it.

    Here is the back of the watch:

    What do you ladies think? I am not aware of this particular style being faked. Usually the fakes are very obvious. The diamonds do seem to have a lot of sparkle.
     
  5. From a layman's POV, it looks promising for authentic. I'm noticing that this is not your basic style of watch with the unusually shaped case, ribbed ball stem, quick change pins for the leather straps, and the pave' face, bezel and lugs. Can't tell how the diamonds are set, but they do look even, and they have color. Another good sign.

    Is there an authentic watch dealer online whose photos you can compare it to?
     
  6. The engravings on the back of my Mini Urban look exactly like that. :yes:
     
  7. Thank you all so much for your responses.

    Oregonfanlisa, the watch is limited edition, it's very hard to find jewelers who sell it. The only pic I have to compare it to is from the Michele website. Here it is w/ the stainless steel band:

    I won the auction. Let's keep our fingers crossed. :smile:
     
  8. I have the Deco w/out diamonds...they are both such lovely watches!!

    Good luck with your Michele...I LOVE mine! :smile:
     
  9. Yes, good luck with your new watch! I hope it's everything you wanted!! Looks stunning to me!!
     
  10. Thanks! It's supposed to be here tomorrow. :smile:
