I'm new to trying to spot the fakes, but based on the Datora I'm wearing today, this one looks fake to me due to the spacing between the ticks on the sliderule and the ticks on the watch face..... But like I said, I'm new to this so would like some confirmation before I report. Thanks!

spacing of the sliderule ticks definitely looks wrong, though it does not show the typical
Datora faulty on the date windows, so would like confirmation ?

My call is probably fake. There is a very accurate looking replica. As Fred said, the giveaways are the outer slide rule marks and the day / month fonts and windows. Maybe this is an improved later generation replica with improved date windows?

Edit: Fake. The 25,26, and 27 dates are too close together. Here is a higher quality pic of the current rep:

And here is real one from Blowers for comparison: http://www.blowers-jewellers.co.uk/imag ... a21330.htm

Good catch ade113.

Reported - "Latest generation 'quality' fake. Sliderule, date spacing is wrong - compare 25, 26 & 27 with real."

Easiest way for me to catch Datora are shorter slide rule markings.
