Looks great BUT the name .....hmmm....
Is anyone have ratio watch? They are same, using Seiko and miyota movement. @ ratiowatches. com
Shame it's mineral glass. Love the colour but name looks like grandad...
Oh now you've gone and done it, comparing this to a Rolly. Watch your back .
They'll cold vote this into the deep freeze.

I thought it was called Gigantor. Now that would be a memorable name!

Good looking watch and a good price for a Seiko automatic movement. Rotary make a similar looking watch if you're going for the Hulk type look.

At least is not Parnis (another good Rolex homage).

For the record, nobody compared the watch to a any particular brand. Thus the only crime committed so far is your heinous use of “Rolly”!

Any other suggestions for automatics in this style (not green) for sub £150?
And folk think Gigandet is a weird brand name.

I can heartily recommend one of these:
h5.aliexpress.com/item/32961849704.html

It's got the same Seiko NH35 movement as the posted deal, a display case back, a sapphire crystal, a ceramic dive bezel, a screwdown crown, 100m water resistance, a steel bracelet with solid links and its a really nice shade of green, with a nice sunburst finish to the dial. Other colours are available of course, but I love my cheap Hulk homage, it's cracking value for money at half the price of the posted watch.

Alternatively, I can also recommend this one:
m.aliexpress.com/item/32822463941.html

Very similar to the one above but 200m of water resistance, a Miyota movement (Edit: it's a Seagull movement), and slightly smaller case size, which might be a factor depending on your wrist size and preferred watch size. I've got this one in blue and the dial sunburst almost makes it look purple in some light.

They're both very nice submariner style watches and are great value. I've thought about posting them on here but A) I'm lazy and B) lots of folks seem to mistrust AliExpress.

The name made me think of Quagmire/Giddity. (I can't escape it, boyf has it as his message alert tone)

I was a bit put off Pagani Design after the QC of their Cocktail Time-alike watches had issues, hopefully they've improved.

This gives those Orient Mako/Ray II's a good run for their money.

Don't understand the down-voters at all.

I can't speak to their overall QC, but my subbie was in great condition.

There was, however, a slight imperfection on one of the bracelet links, and the clasp had a couple of corners that were a little sharper than I would like (easily remedied with a needle file).

To put it into context though, it's still a much better bracelet than you'll find on a Seiko 5, and it only cost me £52. It's fast become one of my favourites, partly because the build quality is very good, partly because my one runs very accurately (I haven't felt the need to regulate it), partly because it looks great, and partly because every time I look at it I marvel at how little it cost me. I know I'm gushing, but I really do enjoy this one.

Thanks for the tip about the Cocktail Time clone, I've been eying them up. If they only produced a Kir Royale dial I would have snapped one up already. What sort of issues did you find with it?

I didn't buy it, but many complained of the caseback being too tight and the movement stopping every half an hour or so (it works fine with it off).

Eg here and here (Relative Time does a Youtube review) and here
Don't get me wrong, it looks great. Not sure if newer versions of this are tweaked, though.

Thanks for that, definitely food for thought. That's a rather disappointing flaw, if it's still an issue on the current crop. I have to say though, if they ever release a red dial I'd be more than happy to correct the case case insert in order to rock that look

It's quite an easy fix, mind you. Can't remember seeing up-to-date reviews of that Pagani Design watch, but the Aliexpress thread on WUS is stupidly long.

Edit: Actually, digging around that thread a bit brought up this newer comment about Pagani Design here

Many of the posts on Watchuseek were from Relative Time, but there's another video of the defect

Yes, I'm certain that Pagani, as with all the Chinese watch manufacturers, produces a lot of poor designs, or poorly executed designs. When I buy a watch from Seiko I'm close to 100% confident that it will be exactly what I expect, without looking at even a single review, but that comes hand-in-hand with increased cost. Buying Chinese requires much more in the way of research as each of these companies produce a lot of rubbish, with a number of gems mixed in. The model I mentioned is the only Pagani I own, and I have no hesitation in recommending it, as it really is very good for the money, but I have no doubt that they also produce a lot of lemons.
The same applies to companies like Loreo, Cadisen, and Guanqing. They produce specific models that offer great value for money, but they also produce some bilge. The trick is to unearth the gems. I love WUS, and a number of watch review YouTube channels, as they're generally very useful for helping me to find the models worth buying. It's rare that I'll buy a watch without reading/watching plenty of reviews. Sometimes, however, I'll let my heart overrule my head, throw caution to the wind, and buy something for which there are few reviews, but it has to be something that really moves me. I did that recently with a Reef Tiger piece (the Ocean Speed) which is a fantastic homage of a Corum Bubble. Sure, I'd love to own the original, but I just don't have £1500-£3000 to spare right now. The Reef Tiger however, cost me a ridiculous £35 on sale, and I get admiring comments every time I wear it. It's another piece where, every time I glance at it, I think "I can't believe how little you cost me!"

I did a very big Chinese watch thread a while back and bought the Guanqin GJ16106 - fantastic watch which I broke.

Have the Rider/Rodina Bauhaus watch M002 (had issues with a loose rotor and seagullwatchstore were hopeless, but I sorted it myself) and the Xiaomi Youpin W001M
Edited by: "louiselouise" 5th Feb
Coming back to the originally posted watch, for a minute, although it's a priced more highly than the subbies I've mentioned, 300m water resistance is pretty impressive at this price for an automatic. Not that I'd ever need that sort of rating as I don't do more than swimming, sailing, or kayaking, but it's certainly a nice feature.

Ouch, always heart-breaking when you do something like that. However, your comment did prompt me to move a couple of watches from a precarious position on a stack of unstable paperwork, so you can console yourself with having potentially saved me a similar fate
