Edited: Apr 18, 2017

Product Information:

The Diesel "Only The Brave" chronograph is a watch that makes a statement; it's big, bold, but not flashy. Counterfeiters are also out to make a statement with a look alike counterfeit of the Diesel watch.

Look closely on the counterfeit watch and you will see that the sub-dials do not function and the calender is painted on the face. Offered for fraction of the authentic watches price, the counterfeit is a cheap imitation and no bargain.

Counterfeit sellers often use manufacturer's advertising (stock) photos in their internet listings to deceive you into believing you are receiving an authentic product.
