    Anyone have suggestions for sites selling, uh, replicas? Mostly interested in Brightling (if you know what I mean)

    Iím so against this. Iím sorry but thatís how I feel.

    Bís arenít all that expensive. And learn to spell it correctly too. Breitling

    And believe me.... I can spot a fake a mile away and others might too. If youíre in the business world... well others will see and think the same way.

    But to each his own.

    I was thinking about it but went with Joma shop instead and purchased my Omega. I simply didnt want to chance buying a fake and it crapping out on me 5 months later. As no one I "trusted"( reddit, this board) could say what was reputable or so .

    Looks wise i thought who will really look at it within 4 feet? a buddy? my wife? I have no problems with them knowing its fake.
    The watch will be "hidden" by a sleeve/ jacket etc..

    go for it if you want....

    Pretty sure the misspelling was intentional to make the point of him looking for a fake.

    I'm in grad school so my budget is negative dollars. I do know how to spell it; I just didn't want it to be obvious in case it would get NESR into trouble. Hence the "If you know what I mean"

    I know you guys are into the jewelry/heirloom watches, but found this noteworthy.

    Been wearing Timex digital watches for a long time as I use the alarms, countdown timer etc and switched from Casio as they are easier to read. Most of them gain or lose 10-15 seconds a month.

    Bought a pretty basic Expedition model (tw4b12600) in January and set the time at time.gov periodically. Set it two months ago, and today it is less than one second off. Pretty remarkable for $40.

    Old school Casios are actually escalating in value. The original calculator watch brings in some good $$

    I actually have an Expedition that was given to me as a gift I-don't-know-how-long-ago. As long as there's a decent battery in it, that fucker has always been spot-on. If I know a watch will take a beating, it's STILL my go-to.

    Re: Any other watch geeks here?

    I've gotten a handful of new straps recently in order to switch it up with my watches without buying whole new ones.

    Everest red rubber strap for submariner. Really can't say enough about the OEM quality of these:

    Black and grey NATO with black PVD hardware:

    Leather vintage style strap on both sub and breitling colt automatic (kept on the colt for now):

    I also got my dad's two-tone datejust, and got it overhauled, which is really nice as well as sentimental. They did a great job getting it all cleaned up. Planning to get a brown alligator dress strap for that as well:

    I also got a barrington 4 watch winder but haven't set it up yet.

    Everest Curved End Rubber with Tang Buckle for Rolex Submariner Cerami

    This is for my specific watch. They have various colors. They also have versions that use your factory bracelet clasp but I didn't want that.

    Checkout Rubber B Watch Bands & Straps | The Ultimate Rubber Strap for nice rubber straps. I've got several.

    Also if you're into leather Stone Creek Straps - Home

    I have about a dozen straps from her. Not the fastest but the wait is worth it. Jenna does great work.

    This is a watch a person either hates or loves.

    For me itís more about the history of this watch. It started out as a Waltham pocket watch made in 1920. The watch workings were completely redone leaving the face with the original patina.

    Itís mounted inside a solid bronze case with an exhibition back and 14kt crown.

    Itís unique and the thing I like about it is I probably wonít bump into anyone that has one.
