  1. Yes I agree but I have to wait until Feb to upgrade. I keep giving mine to my kids
  2. It's DateJust...my phone decides randomly to correct what doesn't need correcting.
  3. Lol Flava Flav! I do tend to push the edge a bit with fashion but typically won't go too far over the line. Maybe the answer is to have a couple different ones to choose from. I do have the same date adjust I posted but find it a tab small...but it is great for professional settings. The thing is it's not a high quality rep. It feels good on in terms of weight, but a couple details are wrong and it runs fast. I dipped my toe into the rep watch world a couple years ago but only paid $160 for each of my reps from a local guy who has a hidden shop within his store. I have the date adjust, the presidential and a chanel j12. The presidential was for my DH but it's cheesy so he gave it to our daughter. Oddly they've never stopped working and haven't fallen apart at all, but I rotate my watches almost daily. I just wish the finer details were correct.
  4. I agree! I think 36MM may be the way to go! Thanks so much for taking the time to respond and show photos! See... this is why I am super attacked to that look! My wrist is 6.5" and just wonder if it would be dwarfed. I think I need to go to the Rolex store in Scottsdale to try some on. Great photos! Thanks for hunting them down for me!! Very thoughtful. I will be sure to post which direction I go. By the way, I have a rep of the date adjust like the on I posted here...not great quality and runs fast too. I like it, just wish it was just a bit bigger. I am finding it feels a bit small on my wrist. I am not sure if it's 36MM....I will have to compare it to my Gen Michele, which is 39" I have an off topic question.... I just got the 1:1 Best Quality Rolex James Cameron Sea Dweller for my DH for Xmas from Puretime (I love them!) and had it sized at a local family owned jewelry store, but a pin fell out a day later. Is this normal and can I fix it myself with the right tools? It was perfectly fine until the jeweler touched it. Anyway...if I can fix it myself, which tool set would you recommend? I am a DIY kinda gal who loves to tinker with watches, jewelry and bags! Thanks for any advice! ps. I have that exact leather jacket too!
  5. Would love your opinion on which model you think would look best on a woman's wrist. I am petite but tend to wear chunkier pieces, I do like bigger watches but not so big it looks silly on me. I am considering these but would love advice. Also, would love your thoughts on which Rolex's have been repp'd the best? I think I read J21 is good but am researching the topic a bit more. Thanks for any advice
  6. Bought this for my hubby for Christmas. I took it to a family jewelry store to size but the pin fell out after wearing it once. Is this normal? I am taking it back for him to fix it today but I am a DIY person. I like fixing and tinkering with things...if I got a good repair kit, would I be able to deal with these issues my self in the future? It's from Puretime, paid around $400 for 1:1 Best Quality...it's really nice but I am a rookie.
  7. Good info thanks so much! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  8. No no I know it's not real. Should have clarified that my bad. I'm totally fine with blunt criticism of this watch. It's a learning process Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  9. Did I buy a piece of junk? What do you savvy and experienced collectors think of this one? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk Couple more pics. Hope they aren't too blurry. May be time for eye exam since I can't tell anymore! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk Sorry for double post Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk Well I must have double vision since I thought I had duplicate posts. Just confirms I need that eye exam! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  10. Found TT, thank god cuz getting ready to order a couple new watches for the DH again. He's jones-in for something new and he finally hears me about not only buying Gen when we have to spend 300 to 500 every couple years to keep his Gen Breitling running right! Now decisions decisions.
  11. Really great info and I appreciate your honest input and opinions a so much. Most of my other "items" go through SF and so far it's been ok. I'll take your advice about not buying watches that aren't made by a watch maker, makes sense. Hubs liked that Oakley watch that's why we got it, but we have alot to learn! We have several Invicta ' s too and have no idea if they are good to collect, we just liked the way they looked back when we got them a few years ago. Not sure what to do with them now since we don't wear gold these days. Again, thanks so much for your help and for taking the time to share your knowledge with me.
  12. Is there such a thing as super reps that even a watch expert would have a hard time knowing it was rep by looking and holding? I just want to make sure I do right by my hubs and not get something that embarrasses us both.
  13. Back from Vacation and now resuming my hunt!
