It would be helpful if you could post pictures of the watch. To be honest it's very difficult to know unless you take it to Chanel and have them open it to view the insides.

But maybe if you could post pictures it might be an obvious fake.

Well, this is a first lol!
Is the watch v heavy, often the fakes are lightweight, but some fakes are good, so that is not to say that yours is authentic, I imagine that if it has been in a lake or river it would need Chanel repairs, and I am guessing they would know very quickly if it was real or not. Harrods has a watch division on the ground floor that can carry out repairs, and would be able to advise.

On the hunt.....
I'm worried about it's previous owner, to find a watch washed up from the river, makes me think the owner could have had an "accident" there. Hope this is not the case :wtf:.

I'm also curious to see photos of this watch.

Well easy, take it to a local jeweler who has experience with diamonds. One look at the stones on the bezel with a 10X loupe and they will be able to tell whether they are genuine diamonds. If they are; then it is a genuine Chanel. If not, then it's fake.

PS: Fake watches do not use real diamonds in case you didn't already know.

That was my first thought too :sad:. Unless it's fake, a $10,000 watch is not exactly something you're going to be throwing overboard. If it were mine, I'd have jumped into a shark tank to save it!

I "only" paid £2,000 for my watch but my goodness I wont be parted from it either!!
