B&W sometimes do things weirdly with their polarizing filters, like sell circular polarizers that are actually linear polarizers, so anything could be going on.

The Lenstip review of CPL has pictures of lots of B&W CPLs and their packaging, by the way. That might be useful to you if you want to visually confirm what you bought looks legit.

My 67mm B+W CPL was very to turn too when it was new. So hard I think the grease dried up. Eventually I had to soak the seam with oil till it turned smoothy. Also, the front retaining ring was loose OOB. The glass is clearer than all the HOYA CPL that I have owned though under a flashlight. Also, I like their square plastic case which won't crack like Japanese hard filter cases. Overall I feel B+W is overhyped, not that they aren't good though.

Thanks for pics but seems its a different box.

Ive asked the seller and he said it was bought in a legit store (hope he doesn't lie ) so I think its a real deal.

The bad thing is B+W (schneider kreuznach) hasnt replied in a week.

Your box is just the older version, I have many B+W filters with the same style.
