I wanted to share this watch with you. I have bought it last week on my holiday to Bodrum, Turkey. They have a lot of quality replica shops there. Although all the watches were of good quality and very nice looking. They were all just a bit to big for my wrist. That's when I found this very thin dress watch, with a manual wind movement. The woman in the shop told me it was a "new" replica, and the only one that was so thin and small. It's a Vacheron Constantin regulateur Chronograph. I don't believe it's still being made, and it's not a very accurate replica either. But that doesn't really bother me. genuine: It's about 6 mm thick and 37 mm in diameter. It has some nice decoration on the movement. The glass is mineral glass with some very nice AR coating. Most of the time it looks like there isn't any glass at all. The space between the dial and the glass is very small, witch probably helps with that. The strap is bad. But that no deal breaker for me. I'll buy a better strap soon. The only thin i do not like about the watch is the date. They should have left it out. The date is sunk real deep, and you can see it's carved out. I looks like there is more space between the dial and the date then between the dial and the glass. Here are the pictures, made with my phone unfortunately. Let me now what u think of it.
Hey RWG, There's a formal occasion coming out (just formal, no black/white tie specified) and I was wondering which watch (rep or gen) to purchase to display an aptitude for watch prowess. The only problem is, about three people out of the few hundred or so will actually know the truly high end brand names (IWC, Piguet for example) and still believe that a Rolex (although OK) is some sort of godlike watch that will slice bread, do the laundry and shows not only you have status but are a 'refined' (lol) man. So, for this what watch do you think I should get? The budget is ~ $5K but I don't honestly want to spend anywhere near that much tbh on a watch that has to impress a group of randoms that will only be seen (hopefully) once (the suit, pants should be chipped in more imo). The thing is that they must be impressed immediately upon sighting the watch. A pre-owned reverso ultra-thin looks nice to me; but I'm not too sure. Anyone with real-field experience that can shed some light into this matter? EDIT: Nothing with any sort of gold please. It seems tacky to me. EDIT2: To give an indicator of the group consider this: Currently the most impressive watch known to me is 'apparently' a gunmetal bvlgari (gen) (I dunno which model) which was ~$1200.
