  1. Genuine 08' Superocean Steelfish

    I think last time I spoke with Robbie was over 5 years ago now. I know at one point he took a break from reps to focus on life outside of the forums. Real great guy, it was Robbie that sparked my intrigue with Ulysse Nardin. So true, such an incredible eye for photography. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Story of a 12-year old replica watch

    Haha Nanuq, sounds like PAMs for you are like Rolex for me. Then once I got myself a WM9 Submariner I suddenly 'got it'...I love most of the Rolex models now. Funny I got my off a dead man too, this watch collecting business is more dangerous than it seems! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Story of a 12-year old replica watch

    Such a walk down memory lane, I used to love the SMP Chrono. I left my reps at home in the UK when I relocated to Aus so sadly miss them! The WM9 Sub really changed my views on Rolex as a brand! I remember the Breitling SOSF (or SFSO!?) as being the watch that really made me realise how good the rep quality was getting, and it was Bytors review that instigated that purchase Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. We are paying too much for our reps!

    I remember a while ago now wheni the first Asian clone movements came through. At the time they were some $120 cheaper than the put together 'Swiss' version. There was then an uproar when some people received Asian instead of Swiss...now a few years later I've popped back on and Asian clones are selling for higher prices than what the Swiss ones used to. I got out of this game a while ago, not through any real choice, mainly because I lost interest. It bece so focussed on precision, dealers service in terms of 100% perfection,and second hand resell values that were frankly ridiculous. For me the forum spirit is what has brought me back to have another look, but having done a bit of browsing, I've come to the conclusion that given the choice between a replica watch with a replica movement, the prices are so close to bottom end gens now, I'd go for the gen. Can't even pick up a bargain on SC anymore. Pricing as pretty bad back then, but I can't believe how expensive they are these days. It's taken that fun factor away from it for me; its no longer a thoughtless purchase. I'm having to make a conscious decision as if I were buying an entry level gen. Don't get me wrong, the quality looks good, but for the money, three reps could see a second hand purchase of a Tag/Omega.

  7. New Navitimer update

    Long time no post, hope everyone is well! A big improvement for me that really seems to change the look of the watch is the thinner bezel knurls...the old rep had such a thick/large distance between the inner edge and the outer edge. Looks a lot smoother like the real thing now. Still not 100% but much better.

  9. Real or gen Navitimer

    Just on a side note, should this be reported to someone...I mean, somebody could walk in there and think this is an absolute bargain.
  10. Real or gen Navitimer

    100% fake, the easiest tell is the datewheel...then you have the thick bezel which is also another quick tell.
  11. Can you share some of the close up pics?
  12. Assuming no box or papers have they forwarded the serial number to you or any pics? Always best to authenticate prior to purchase
  13. Footbal Team

    I'm a Liverpool fan....which is frustrating. For the past two seasons we have played exactly the same kind of football in the Premiership games; keeping possession but lacking that critical edge when finishing. We just haven't had the quality of players to keep up with the like of the two Manchester clubs. Maybe one day we will challenege for a top four position again I love watching the Spanish league for the great skill, Barcelona and Real Madrid are a joy to watch.
  14. Stunning watch you have there, the old Explorer 2 is one of the nicest Rolex's out there.
  15. I buy reps because I cannot afford the gen of all the watches I like.....reps buy me variety. Gen owners dislike fakes/reps because they steal the design which is illegal and sell it at a lower price. We can convince ourselves that gens aren't worth the inflated price, in truth, this is irrelevant. They are luxury items and priced highly because they are exclusive and intended for people with enough disposable income to purchase them...reps destroy this exclusivity.
