    I guess you can't trust chrono24 since they allow sellers to sell fakes no different than fleabay that does the same and let sellers rip off buyers.

    The price would make me suspicious for a start! But to my eye, it's all just too "blobby" and clumsy-looking to be real

    If you go on Google and type Fake Seamaster 300 one of the pages is actually from eBay warning of all the fake signs... funny that they warn you but do sod all when you report an actual fake!

    I have just reported this guy to Chrono24.. okay if you are not an expert you may not know that it's a fake... this guy is a professional watch dealer.. and with Mil300's going for what £20-30K?.. him selling it at 5K euros should be suspect alone!

    I just offered the seller 1 EUR and got this message:

    “Your suggested price differs significantly from the advertised price.
    Price suggestions that are significantly different from the advertised price are usually rejected. We suggest that you raise your price suggestion”.

    Think it has left the building , not seeing it on site now /
    How can an experienced seller with many good examples on display put that thing up for sale ? Not going to do his rep any good .
