In Response To: Re: RHS ()

I agree with you, once a fake always a fake. The locking clasp they use is the wrong one, and the pictures on their site are not the products their selling, there real Seamaster Pros.

Best Regards,


: What go my attention was that their photos looked like the
: real thing. A place like that might use a legitimate photo
: of the genuine watch in their ads though.

: Fakes probably keep time fairly well with a Japanese movement.
: That's about the only thing you can say about them. The
: engineering, craftsmanship, beauty, quality of materials,
: (and therefore the durability and toughness) is zilch
: compared to the real thing. At least that's been my
: experience with the few fakes I've seen. Even if there were
: some ok fakes, they are still fakes!!
