I am planning on buying the Patrimony Bi-Retrograde Day & Date.
The problem is that I am not sure whether I can tell if the watch is real or fake.
Are there any signs I should look out for when I buy this watch?
There was a plastic film around the watch and the watch felt heavy but other than that, i have no way of knowing if this is a real and new watch.
At the shop, I noticed that the leather band didn't look very new - sort of used - the band wasnt polished or shiny - the dealer said that it was new and that is the way the leather band is supposed to look like. Is that true?
This brought out another question - how do you know if you are buying a new watch or a pre-owned one?
Any comments or advise would be appreciated.
