    Hey peeps,
    Finally the day when I am asking this question to the experts and enthusiasts of RWI ^^

    There's a guy in a local Facebook group offering this Hublot:

    Can someone determine if this is rep or gen? He's certainly presenting it as a gen and I'd try to make him aware people should know if it's rep... or look into reporting or alike.
    Thanks a million!

    Edit: he states it is a 301RX Carbon and it's No 1 of 250

    Edit 2: from checking pics on the web I'd say wrong subdials @3 and @6, hence screams rep?

    The caseback screws seem to be mangled pretty good. Why would a gen have mangled caseback screws?

    This screams rep to me. An AD doing service on this would have the correct tools to ensure no damage occurred and would replace damaged screws.

    Rep, this is a quartz. Maybe a Seiko VK movement.

    It's not possible to have black date on white date wheel.
    Gen changes their date wheel often. But the font screams rep though so rep it is.

    Definitely a rep. Tuiga 1909 has an clear open back, and 1/250 is a prototype model number. So the chances of a random having that are extremely rare.

    @ALL, thanks again :)
    So I had a little bit of time and reached out to the guy, behaves like a nice fella gotten into financial trouble and hence being so desperate he's let it go for just €1.5k, clearly emphasizing it is a real one, just not having the papers ready here (Germany) until in 2 months when he travels back to his other place of live (UAE, which from his FB profile at least indeed could be even true)...
    How nice of him. He's living just 20 minutes from me, offered to let me see the watch in person, should I do that? Anyone else joining lol? :D
    A pity, doesn't seem to be a truly bad guy from how/ what he's talking, probably really in trouble atm. But letting others pay for that by scamming has always been, is and stays shit.

    It's fake. A bad fake also. The obvious tell is the seconds sub dial (on the left) middle should lineup with the middle of the right side of the zero on the 10 hour marker. This lines up to the right of that. Here's real one. https://goo.gl/images/rfVfkA

    Ok, Subdials wrong (wrong numbers look at the 40 which is not on the original), backcase is wrong (not transparent saphire like the real one), the markers are wrong (look on the right marker which is the same like the left marker but on the original model the right marker is a white dot), the pattern of the carbon are fake as hell. "H" Marker on the dial is also wrong (to thin) and the Date is the biggest tell.

    Even the Rep Strap is totally wrong its polished in the middle which is totally wrong.The original one (and the V6.5 one) is not like that.

    Easy to spot this Quarz fakes :D one reason why i dont buy a Quarz version of a Hublot Evolution. Only from the classic fusions.

    Its a 100 Dollar Quarz fake.
