The best advice would be to buy your watch from an established source. This could include Ku's 10 Past Ten or Andrew Shears Sheartime or Ben Clymers watch shop, Hodinkee or Matthew Bain's, Mondani or tudor replica Passion Report. Aurel Bacs overseeing any Phillips auction is a sure thing. I would post an image and the source of any watch to VRF as a secondary confirmation before buying.
