Is that a seamaster, can't tell from the picture.
it's a seamaster planet ocean.... replica
I can't dump 2k on a watch, but this is a very, very good replica.

big watches are the style these days
if I was buying a gen I'd buy a 42mm, I got a 45mm because this is a better quality rep.

My roommate had an excellent rolex replica, automatic and there were very few things that made it distinguishable from the rolex. For one, it was much louder when you hit it against your palm to make the automatic movement spin.
Yes, it's a swiss ETA movement.
Don't get me wrong, it's still a 250 dollar watch, but I like watches and at 250 bucks a pop I can buy several vs just one gen
It's accurate enough that I can put gen hands/crystal/face/bezel on it, but it's accurate enough for me.
Next up is a PAM and a nice dewitt skeleton watch

I have a black leather strap with orange stitching on order to replace the bracelet..

no, most of the dealers are in china.
there are websites dedicated to collecting reps, which dealers are good, which reps are good, I'm new to it and researched it a bit first.

No, in fact I'm going to take the privilege away because some people have to abuse it.
