Beware - I received this watch (NB from a third party seller fulfilled by amazon) and as soon as it arrived I was a bit wary of its authenticity.
I already own the equivalent watch with black and silver (ar1400) and so knew what the watch was meant to be like. As soon as I took the watch out of the box something felt off compared to my other one (I am very picky). Specifically the writing on the watch face was blurry compared to the crisp clean font of the one I already own.
I took the watch to a watch shop that sells Armani watches and we spent over half an hour comparing it to both my old watch and a new version of this watch from the shop - the conclusion we came to was that we were unsure of its authenticity, but if it was a fake, it is the best fake that we have ever seen of any watch.
I decided to return it, based on two reasons: 1) the certificate of authenticity was completely different to the one inshore
2) I would never be happy with the hanging doubt over my mind
These armani ceramica watches are absolutely great, the best watch I have ever owned - but beware that they are counterfeited, and counterfeited well - have a quick look on ebay or elsewhere.
Amazon return process was great. Excellent service in that respect and will always purchase Amazon/Fulfilled by Amazon products.
