Well, if you don't know anything at all about the brand of watch, all I can advise is to look at as many examples of the Real Thing as possible - hi-res photos from manufacturers' and sales catalogues taken from all angles - and then compare them with what you're thinking of buying. Easier if you're buying face-to-face than from an online site - and, if you intend to spend real money (IWC are very expensive watches), keep away from eBay unless you're dealing with a known and trusted seller.

Coincidentally, following on from Jaycey's excellent posts about the Rolex, I was looking at IWC watches on a replica watch site this morning - out of curiosity. They're very good-looking replicas - Chinese movements in most of them - selling for something like $300 and, to the uninitiated, just like the real thing. The site is quite straightforward about the watches being replicas, and they describe the movements accurately - but lord knows what happens to them after they've been bought... :hair:

Fakes avoid like the plague. My brother purchased a fake Breitling  (€35) it worked for a month then stopped. When I opened it the oscillating weight turned not in a bearing but in a brass type metal bush that had worn.  As far as I was concerned it not possible to repair economically.

 All things being equal, why did you select 5002?   When it comes to the expensive watches, you have to know your seller. In the past month I have bought for expensive watches from presumably trusted sellers. Two of the four were returned.   They claim  honest mistakes.

Thread is 20 months old, do not expect a reply. OP appears to be one one of these people that joins forum is desperation, and do not follow through.
