  1. "Disillusion"... A great description for what happens a week after getting my cheapies. I spent >$500 on cheapies of Rolex, Omega, and Panerai. Learned my lesson though. You really do get what you paid for.
  2. Both watches look good from ten feet away. The most important thing is - are you happy with them? If yes, then they are good buys. I am a newbie myself and have bought my share of "beginner" reps, including the one you showed in the photo. These beginner reps are certainly cheaper, but looking back I wished I had saved the money and spend on a Noob V6/V7. The differences are great between this and that (once you learned to recognize them).

    Buying first rep

    No offense meant mr. Italiansub, but your sharp eagle eyes remind me of a few women I know. Lol. Watch is about the only accessory I check out on any man. Sent from my SM-T900 using Tapatalk
  4. My first experience with reps was during a business trip to China. I went to the infamous "copy market" in Shanghai and bought a few reps for gag gift because the quality of those were terrible. Skip ahead fifteen years and I rediscovered replica watches. I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of many top notch super reps that I honestly could not readily distinguish from my genuine. Oh, there are "tells", I am sure, but they are only visible to the well trained eyes. For the past few weeks, I have been browsing RWI and this forum, reading and more reading. I already bought a couple reps from M2M at RWI and will do the same here. For my next rep, I am eyeing a pre-owned TC or BK sub. Eventually, I want to get into modding my own rep. RW is definitely becoming a hobby.

    I agree with @Italiansub. Buy your lifestyle and most people will not call you out. TC is a TD who makes nice older model Rolex subs. If you still want a TC Sub, search for a pre-own on the M2M here and at RWI. I wouldn't order direct as TC has a looong wait-list of buyers, and it will be 2-3 months before you receive your order.
