A few years back I bought my wife a B&M watch at Costco, but a year later it couldn't keep time properly, even with battery changes. Having it professionally looked at revealed that it had a non-standard B&M quartz movement piece (low-cost asian cloned copy). This was rectified for a few hundred more. The rest of the watch was authenticated by the watchmaker repairman and serial numbers by B&M themselves.
Thus somewhat cautious, I had my new 8462 watch professionally opened up and was relieved to see that Amazon.com lives up to its authenticity claim. My watch is genuine B&M and has Swiss 2893 movement - equating to a "Top" rating, which I read online somewhere is just shy of official chronometer certification.
I concur with the other posts. The 8462 is beautiful, lightweight, the red is reddish brown (but tends to suit the watch better IMO), the leather strap operates like a clasp wristband, and note that the time movement arms are chrome vice grey. While watch adjustment is easy to figure out, the all-watches-in-one B&M instruction manual is likely the worst part of this purchase. Overall, the B&M 8462 and Amazon.com are both highly recommended!
When I received it, I validated the serial number's authenticity with the manufacturer. They told me it was sold to a vendor somewhere in Europe. Obviously the watch ended up on the "gray" market which is where Amazon gets their high-end watches. This can be a sketchy proposition unless you trust the seller. And after having it for a year, I have no doubts regarding its authenticity and would buy another high-end watch from Amazon.
My only complaint would be the difference in the reds of the numerals from the picture. Other reviewers have mentioned this. However, really not a big deal to me now since this watch is so incredible.
It's simple and classy and works well with a suit. The case has an ideal thickness: Thick enough to give it a feel of luxury but not too thick to obstruct your cuffs.
This is also my first automatic watch and I am a bit annoyed by the fact that I have to reset my watch on the first day of every week (I don't wear the watch on weekends and it runs out of juice by Saturday evening).
If you are looking to buy a watch as an investment then avoid B&M as it does not appreciate in value. Rolex and Tag Heuer offer watches which are slightly more expensive than a B&M but have the potential to increase in value with time.

However, the clasp arrangement on the watch band is too complicated for me to hook up.Read more
