In...

    Some crucial truths about replica watches

    no one says all reps are bullshit... the point is to not trust those who promise spectacular quality. the quality of reps are more or less the same, from mediocre to good quality. But not as they claim to be identical, exact copy, mirror etc... Youtube videos show some good examples of...

    with 95% similarity of reps, would u still opt for a gen?

    Saying sapphire is sapphire and steel is steel in both reps and gens is quite fair. First of all, you never can be sure that dealers selling 904 steel is indeed 904. Most probably not. The same is for the sapphire. Dealers only promise it but impossible to check it. So, from this point, one can...

    PP 5070: what's so special about it?!

    Don’t think this PP would look as stunning with a smaller bezel. I’m inclined to believe that we are sometimes driven by standards to such an extent that we can't accept deviations. If the bezel was smaller, it would look more like a “general” watch, mediocre maybe. Make abstractions form the...

    do you guys admit openly your watch is a replica?

    idk why but i'm not sure that all those admitting so easily here are indeed honest... I can speak frankly about my rep only after making sure that people I talk to have the same position as I do regarding reps... you never know who you are talking to and screaming out loud to the left and to the...
