Need help identifying if this is a fake

I am about to pull the trigger on buying this Carrera Calibre 16 and was wondering what I should look out for, to ensure the watch is not take. Any pointers would be appreciated.

I am buying this off someone on Craigslist. We have agreed to meet at an authorized Tag Heuer dealer for someone to look at the watch.

He has the box and all of the paperwork.

Thanks for the tips.

excellent approach. I was thinking of suggesting this but wasn't sure if this was an internet type of purchase of something local.

It wouldn't say Swiss Made at the bottom on each side of the 6 line if it were a fake.

Looks solid to me, but the Tag dealer should be able to verify for you. I've been very happy with my Tag. Nice watch and good luck!

Thank you. This will be my second Tag Heuer. Always liked the look of the Calibre 16 and larger watches.
