I mean no offence, but the fakes out of China are so good now that it's difficult to tell the real ones from the fakes! I would never buy a watch from the net. Sorry.

I would never buy a Rolex. I have a perfectly good Lorus which tells the time. That's about all that a watch should do...

Rolex = bling. I hate bling

Bit of a sweeping statement Basosz.

I happen to wear a SS Rolex GMT Master II and it is NOT bling!!

If it were encrusted in diamonds and I looked like either a Pit Boss or a Pimp then fair enough - but the GMT Master II is one of the most classic looking watches of all time.

Could be... but what's the point of a ten-thousand dollar watch if a one hundred dollar watch shows the same time ? I'm sorry... I just don't get it... just as I don't get spinners, and lots of other bling on cars and jewelry etcetera... I just don't understand it...

What's the point of Ferrari then? A Ford Focus will get you there just the same.

My father has two Rolex watched, both 27 years old (purchased by his parents) and never has had any problems except the service and parts costs :P

1x Datejust (blue faced) - his dad's watch

1x Submariner - stainless - he wears this every day for most of the 27 years, except when sailing.

I am not a fan of gold watches at all, i much prefer the grey metals - stainless steel, platinum, titanium etc.

I would like a Datejust though, however, the situation i am in at the moment would make me a bit out of place with a Rolex.

You dont bring a gun to a fist fight


And in regards to the hundred thousand dollar watch:

I know someone who wears Audemars Piguet watches, One costing nearly 100,000 AU. Its pretty nice, but its a bit extravagant and a bit of a wank in my opinion.
I dont think there is a need to wear such an expensive watch other than for blinging.

There are a lot of people at school with the fake Rolex watches. None of them have the sweep hand. Rolex dont have batteries!!!

While it isn't in the top niche of watches I've always liked the clean look of Movado. They are very thin and clean in design.

I was just about to say that for price and elegance alone, Movado is the best. I really like how thin they are and how simple it is.
