    Why OILMAN was banned: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/218...r-Alert-UPDATE

    From the Basenotes rules and guidelines, why anyone is banned:

    "What may get you banned.


    These are guidelines and do not necessarily mean that a member will be banned in these circumstances. This is by no means an exhaustive list.

    If you cause disruption or harm to your fellow members' experience or enjoyment of the Basenotes Community.
    Repeated rule violations and hostility.
    Disregarding warnings.
    Frequent complaints from other members.
    Any action which could cause harm to the site, its members or others.



    Remember "treat others as you would like to be treated." and have fun."

    I have no idea why the word BANNED isn't there anymore.

    Hey guys, i have a question for you. I have 3 genuine watches (Omega PO/Sea Master & Breitling Navi) whichi love. I'm not a huge watch guy but i'm becoming more interested. I hve ae buddy who is into watches as much as we are into Frags, and recently came clean and told me that half of his colelction are replicas. But keep in mind, these are not your standard reps, these are SPOT ON 1 to 1 matches, from casing to quality movement ect.. He has 2 of my watches in rep version and we compared and i was blown away.

    My question is this, the reps he is getting a re by no means cheap, there in the 500-1k range, but cheap relative for what the actual watch goes for. I'm contimplating getting one, there is a really nice UN i like, or do you think i should go to dpeartment store and buy a regular watch for 500bucks. I guess lke frags my taste have evolved and of course these type of watches are not in my price range to spend 5-10k on a watch, and when shopping at the mall for regular watches, i guess i don't see anything that appeals to me or maybe i'm jujst caught up in it being a "normal" watch, kind of lke designer vs. niche.

    Anyways i'm rambling, anyone own any reps?

    I have never bought a replica, and I don't think I ever will... I have never seen a perfect fake for sale.

    The pre-owned/vintage market might be a less expensive option (or the only option if you're looking for a discontinued model).

    Thanks for the response. quality of the watch is not something i'm owrried about, i know it will work and as all my friends watches have for years. plus he fixes/repairs watches as well. I guess it wold be my first rep, so on the fence, but not sure why, all his watch are amazing

    You were actually the person i knoew would response and wanted to see what you had to say, even though i kind of knew the answer I guess i willl enjoy my 3 watches and maybe see if there is a nice looking watch in the stores that catches my eye, and forget about what brand it is, as long as it looks nice. I know with 5bills to spend at the mall will open my options to a bunch of brands. What's everyone's take on invitcita, michalel kors, decent watches?

    Default Re: Lets Talk Watches

    My basic recommendations would include mid-range priced, but high quality brands like Tissot- virtually available in any good quality department store, mall or watch shop, a great range of quartz and automatic Swiss mechanisms, sturdy and well-made metal cases, almost exclusively sapphire crystal dial windows, also a great range of sporty or dressy models

    tissot.ch- their website itself is a good place too start, while a wide range of their watches is available on Amazon.com and in in most online as well as regular retail stores

    Hey Troyvi,

    Maybe you should check out the watchuseek forums. There are so many options and many styles you can choose from. You should also mention what style do you prefer (dress, dive,...) and what type of budget (you said limited but exact price range is more help full ie. <1000, 1k-2k, 2k>)

    If your price range is above 1k, Ball is an excellent choice (http://ballwatch.com/). If you look around in the market place, you can score some nice ones under 1k.

    For under 1k range, Steinhart is a strong company with many glowing reviews for their watches (http://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/). I've been lusting over their Ocean 1 GMT and Apollon for a while now.

    Read around a bit and pick out what fits you best. Hope you score yourself a beautiful graduation watch.

    EDIT: I surfed watchuseek and saw you selling your Raven. ^^" You already have a Kingston (which I adore and wished I had one) so you DON'T need a new watch LOL.

    There's an Ellesse watch I found a few years back and only sold by H Samuel Jewelers in the UK. I think it's now discontinued but I'm determined to track it down. Black leather band with white stitching, rectangular brushed aluminum frame, black face with chronograph and some orange lettering.

    In my personal opinion, do not buy a replica just because you can't pay for the watch you want. Use the money to save for the real thing instead and get a Timex in the meantime. Replica watches are generally horrible quality and the companies that sell them are crooks, IMO.

    I've gotta say I've been a fan of Swatches since I got my first one in 1987. I thought that once I was older and able to afford more expensive watches, I'd ditch Swatch, but such has not proven the case. In fact, I bought two new ones last month that I have worked into the rotation. I think the first Limelight is the ultimate status symbol and I'd love to find one to wear when I get all dressed up.

    Here's a question for you watch gurus... I've always heard about Swiss being tops. However recently, I've been hearing a bit more about Japanese? Is that legit? I don't know the lingo very well, but whatever the time-keeping part of the watch is called is what I'm referring to. I just recently made my first foray into a fairly expensive watch (compared to average, see the Nixon above), so I'm still learning.

    The difference between japanese vs swiss is the watch movement. The swiss hand built, very precise while the orient is robotic built very precise also but not as much as the swiss. The quality may differ also. This is why the big names like Rolex, Tag heuger, breitling to name a few are built the swiss way.

    Guys, how do you measure the precision of these watches? All my watches seem precise to me and my most expencive one was around 120 USD, so nowhere near that Nixon
