The "replicas" are then sold to companies in China for pennies who then sell them to the Turks for a pound then you buy them for, say, £20. Everyone gets a slice of cake, everyone is happy including Rolex who then claim they are "fake". And that's economics 101 for you.


No they are not. That is simply miles from the truth. These are not made in switzerland, the parts are all completely different and so is the movement and the features it has.

The country of origin is different (china not swiss), and the labour force is, and the parts used, and the quality control is as well they are miles apart. If that is economics 101, then maybe you should take economics 102 as well

I like omega but this is not the nicest one I've seen but have some heat for the price

Basic looking would have preferred a chronograph feature for this price

Doesn't Titanium scratch very easily.


Example , firstclasswatches.co.uk/blo…ar/
When one has money comfortably to play with these watches, scratches are not an issue; on the other hand those who wear , not play, them only on "Sunday going to church or temple" do mind the scratches on thousands of pounds plus watches

Is the proper term not "genuine replica my friend"?

Hmmmm £4k on a watch that tells the time and....erm...looks ok...or a family holiday. That's a tough one for sure. I often wonder about these posts because let's face it, if we could just throw £3,800 at a watch then we wouldn't be on here looking for deals. Then again, people who have a lot of money are usually the stingiest in society, in my experience.

First this is for an Omega, not Rolex, second you are simply wrong - not sure if you believe what you say and are ill-informed or being untruthful?

Some replica watches are stunning. There's huge difference between proper, reverse engineered replicas and cheap tat you buy in Turkey with a logo printed on it.

I love watches but I'm too poor to afford them :(.

Hahaha, the lucky lucky man totally sucked you in didn't he?

There are 'grade A' replica watches that look pretty close to the originals, but none of them are made in the same factories, ever.

I wonder what the unit cost of production is on these things...

Same ridiculous mark up as a car I imagine.
Still love my seamaster though. Heat although I won't be buying

Always get a good laugh reading the comments on a luxury watch thread on HUKD.

a good investment if you have the spare cash tbh, unlike iphones and other gadgets these will be worth more in 20 years.

Rolex have been making watches for over 100 years. Whilst their quality control will be of a high standard are you saying for every watch that does meet their exacting standard there are 1000's that don't!

The problem with buying watches like this as an investment is that they are so expensive so service you can't really have a selection of branded watches. For people that have the real deal it seems desirable to have some replicas for when you feel like a change as it's hard to wear Seikos and the like after getting used to an Omega or Rolex.
Some replicas are pretty much indistinguishable from when I've gathered - just can't be obtained through paypal which sucks.

I wouldn't go as far as saying they are an investment, they just won't loose you as much money as a tech. gadget. Even if the resale price rises keeps up with inflation it isn't making you money, and you make a loss if you take the manufacture's advise and get it serviced every few year at around 10% of the cost of the watch.

Nice model and a good price watch but a little small width, I prefer the 40+mm models.

I've had four titanium watches and scratching has never been an issue.

That's exactly what the guy in Bulgaria told me three years ago when I bought an Omega Seamaster off him for 60 quid. And he even had his mate Zoltan (who worked at the Omega factory) stood next to him to vouch for him.
It's hard to believe there are still some people around who are daft enough to invest in the genuine watches when they could get a fortnights all abusive holiday AND the (almost same) watch for the same price.

just buy a smartwatch and you can put any face on it, including "tribute" faces that look just like this

I had this one many moons ago (pre kids!) and it's a timeless classic. Hot!

My mate Rodney says reliant robins are Ferrari rejects. They ship them to China, take a wheel off, remould the fibreglass and bingo. He has good financial advice too.

Not really when you consider it is a movie player, music player,compass,camera,video camera,torch,satnav,live sky tv player,mini laptop etc etc etc.Hell I can even make phone calls from it.A bargain really and a much more accurate time than the Omega which can only tell the time

It often appears that is has, but it's usually "just" the grey oxidised layer that forms after you start wearing it/on contact with air, revealing the shiny metal underneath.

But how long does a phone last, on average, 2 years, if you push it 3. and then it will be worth less than a tenth of it's original price most likely.

Although the right phone is a bargain, I agree there.

A watch will last decades, and could be passed on from you to your kids, and then to your grandkids and so on. Yeah they tell you that you need to service it every 3-5 years, but most of these decent watches will easily last 15 years without a service, then get it serviced and it is good as gold again.

It is also an item of jewellery, and an item of clothing, a suit will cost anywhere from 100-10,000 and will last a few years of regular use before it should be replaced (obviously more if it is only for special occasions) same with other items of clothing, but a watch you can wear every day.

On Top of being a fashion item, jewellery item, heirloom/investment, and obviously a time piece, it is also a beautiful piece of engineering, and could be considered a hobby, just like racing, or shooting, or train sets.

Sure, you can tell the time with your phone, or just get an £8 casio watch and do fine, but a mechanical watch is so much more than a way to tell the time. My main watch is a seiko skx009 (~£150). I have got much more than 150 quids worth of pleasure out of it after only a couple of months, and it isn't going to stop any time soon. I can imagine a more expensive, more complicated watch would give a lot more enjoyment. Just like anything, you could say "why get an expensive car?", "why buy expensive wine?" etc, because you get more enjoyment out of it.


Oh, and a side note, my watch is more accurate than my phone's clock, assuming I turn off synchronisation with the phone and the internet, which I think is fair considering you aren't synchronising the watch with the internet either

Thanks. Ordered 3... just in case. Can't afford to miss out on this offer.

is this a good offer?
