Looks pretty fake to me. Unsigned movement inside, that's one thing. The dial stinks - the M in 200m looks wrong, it should be leaning more to the right, and the font used for it appears wrong as well. The Tudor shield looks more narrow than it should, and it starts narrowing too close to the horizontal line. The paint used for the print looks far less crisp than it normally does on the 9401 and 94010. The inscriptions look somewhat blotchy compared to all the specimens I could find for comparison, and the spacing in "Prince" looks uneven, and far more narrow than it should.

Dial looks wrong, Bloke goes into great detail. I don't know enough but something is definitely not right.

The movement should be engraved with the Tudor name, and the screws should be blued.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

By no means do I even pretend to know a lot about Tooters, but that bracelet with what looks like 'folded over' links looks suspect to me.

IDK about the watch, but get a manicure motherfucker! (Unless of course those are not the hands of the konk-off seller in which case fungus or perhaps artist goop or paper machete paste crusted cuticles and whatnot can be very artsy).

The blue of the dial looks wrong to my eyes too (redial?).

But the movement .... it’s definitely a no. And what’s with the brass retaining ring?

My first post in weeks and it would be with poorly manicured hands! My apologies, but had to get the shots fast before the old guy changed his mind about me taking photos of his "authentic" tooter watch. You guys saved me $500 and a serious case buyers remorse. Thanks again!!

Manicures are for poofters. I just bite mine when they get too long and haven't broken off while doing mans work.
