Learning about reps was one of the most fascinating rabbit holes I’ve fallen down. It did a lot to make me question the prices some brands sell their products for, especially a particular one using off-the-shelf Valjoux movements and very simple cases selling for $5-15K+…

Yeah I’m not a fan of mechanical movement reproductions, or anything over $15

So that leads to quartz and dhgate.com!

This fake, the nomos, fakes a watch that is automatic, but the fake is quartz
what makes it ‘work’ visually is that the second hand is so tiny you can;t tell it is moving once a second.

Well that too, but I mean a well-known Swiss brand that doesn’t seem to have much setting them apart when really broken down and compared to reps of several of their models.

I’m quite happy with my new Pagani Explorer because so far it gains ~ 3 sec a day out of the box.

Nice, eagerly awaiting my bronze steeldive which I bought today (paypal 12 month 0% lol) . Had my eye on it for some time. Will show you hopefully tomorrow!
the guy is in the UK so no customs etc and it’s the same price as from China (and you’ll get some warranty), he sells these Pagani’s too too! Here’s the link, it may be of use. Wink LINK

As is the trident Thumbs Up
Got a lume shot now. was supposed to be 2 colour Swiss Luminova C3 on the face and BGW9 on the Bezel but it’s all BGW9, which to be fair is nicer, and it’s different from my citizen promaster which uses both, BGW9 on the face and the other on the hands/ 60 minute mark on bezel. Pretty sure it’s the best £179 I’ve spent lol. I would like a see thru case back though – I would assume the bodu is the same size as a Seiko, so it’s doable theoretically.

That’s a pretty one, congratulations! Thumbs Up
This will be a hard time for my wallet since they’ve also released a new steel version in green! Smile

Thanks Thumbs Up
The guy who sells them is really nice, I asked if he could source a display case back and he’s going to try to get one for me that we know will fit from China, he also said since I’d now bought 1 watch, if I wanted any more later on to email him and he’d give me a discount. That was welcome, since they are already pretty cheap for UK stock from a UK shop with a real 1 year warranty lol.
I wasn’t sure about the leather strap , but it’s softened up quite quick and is very comfortable, plus it is actually leather, since my dog wants to eat it up! smells like a brand new leather coat.

@weklund:

That's a stunning looking watch.

If I didn't have a thing for digital watches, I might be interested.

I am sad to say that Zixen closed their doors in 2018.

See the attached explanation post at Watchuseek:

https://forums.watchuseek.com/f74/going-out-business-clearance-sale-all-...

These fine watches are a very rare find these days. I highly recommend the Zixen brand as I have owned a few for many years.

Good luck to all with your quest to find one of these beauties.

Nice watches . I got interested in watches when I read Dr. No back in the 60’s. It said James Bond wore a Rolex Submariner .

That started a long journey though 100’s of cheap watches and 5 dollar Rolex copies from Chinatown in NYC . Eventually landing on a Submariner in Stainless and gold when I was in my 40’s . It cost $5,800. I think I wore it twice in the last 25 years

I also bought a bunch of other watches along the way because I have OCD . Which is why I now have too many flashlights since joining this forum .

I lived on the watchuseek.com web site checking out the “deals” section

OCD is a cruel mistress , Watches , flashlights , guns , knives , swords , tomahawks , medieval helmets , gas masks .

I worry about what will be next .
