I used to do a fair amount of trademark anti-counterfeiting work for Rolex back in the 80s. Some of the fakes were laughable (misspelled words, obvious variations from the format for the particular model, etc.), but many would require a fairly detailed examination to detect.
A couple of the guys here at work have Chinese "Rolex's" that they got when visiting some of our customers in China. There was a guy with his little cart of watch parts on the street corner every day and you go to him and pick out which hands, face, bezel, etc. that you want and then come back in an hour and pick up your custom Rolex. That may explain why some of the fakes have such obviously mismatched parts.
Got any 'contacts'
All genuine . All mine .
That Cartier is a classic.
Not anymore, but in the old days SWMBO was known to be rather cavalier about her "Rolex" watches.
I had one of those issued to me a few months back. Keeps great time and has some nice features. But, overall, just too complicated for me. Got to carry the owners manual with me just to figure out how to hack it.
I've had a Rolex Explorer I a few years ago and found it tremendously disappointing: The stem just slid out one day when I was setting it, and after it was repaired it lost 10 seconds a day. I lost patience with the repair center and sold it.
This will be my next "good" watch:
That's more like it. I mean, if I wanted a rolex I'd probably also ride a Harley.
...or a BMW???
Not a particularly cool watch, but it's automatic, tough, waterproof, accurate and I feel comfortable wearing it anywhere.
'sides it was the best I could afford. (I'd spend thousands on watches if I could, I do appreciate good engineering and Quality.)
I don't like any watch with a battery.
I've been thinking about one of these. Any of you swiss watch experts have any inputs on it?
Although this is not my image, I have this same watch.
Built by MkII watch, on a Seiko Dive watch.
The base watch (SKX009 if you care) is a great deal on a well built auto movement, very nicely made IMHO.
MKII watch redialed and re-handed it. I like the functional, non-blingyness of it.
The choice of KLR pilots around the globe! The best part is no Dohickey replacement nessecary!!!
1998 Bell&Ross Titanium Space III
don't any of you people actually wear your watch? mine has been on my arm 24/7, except when i go to mexico, since i got it in 1994 (and it shows in this crappy picture). it's due for a new crystal and maybe a band, too.
one of the last double red sea dwellers http://www.doubleredseadweller.com/dr.htm
