  • Authenticate Me Posting Rules Guidelines

    Please post ‘Authentication Requests’ in this forum.

    If you are selling a watch and it is questioned here, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting authenticity.
    Do not handle disputes with other members in this forum, please take any differences to Private Messages or use the REPORT function to alert the Moderator Team, and they will handle it from there. In the meantime, just ignore the poster until a mod can intervene.

    Please use the "Quote" feature when responding directly to another post.

    If the watch IS on an auction site, please use this format:

    (e.g. watch listed on Trademe/ eBay/ etc.)

    Item Name:
    Item Number:
    Seller ID:
    Seller Description:


    If the watch is NOT on an auction site, please use this format:

    (eg watch was bought off-line/ given as a gift/ etc.)

    Item Name:


    - If the watch is not listed on an auction site, you must include photos, or provide a link to where images are hosted.

    Please do a search in this thread (type seller's name in "Search this forum" located in the top left corner) and check if the item has been reviewed by one of the senior authenticators before posting.

    Please note that comments on price and condition are NOT permitted.

    Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication – please just use this forum.

    Authenticators are not required to answer every request, and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.


    All ‘Authenticate Me’ threads on Timekeeper Forum are meant to provide assistance to members who are uncertain about the legitimacy and authenticity of a particular watch. The evaluations posted by Timekeeper Members are only opinions that stem from personal experiences as buyers and collectors. They are not legally binding or professional authentications and are not to be treated as such.
