"Not this crap again" is abusive to me. It shows a lack of social awareness. Some people can use the internet for years and sadly still not understand basic standards of acceptable human communication.

I agree it's important to be authentic, whilst overseas was flooded with fakes. I also think its best not to support anything that undermines the authentic manufacturers I was interesting to hear others views on the broader issues. The interesting thing is in a strange way it has helped in the development of the Microbrands which often use similar movements to the "copy" watches. I think we nearly all agree to pass of a watch with fake branding as real is hollow and undermines the real brands. This post was not just about fakes but gauging opinion on homages/movie set prop.s. etc. Things aren't always as black and white as they may seem. Maybe read the post fully before commenting and being abusive. I'm new here so if this is repeat sorry. Apparently there are still more fake watches around than real ones so it is still an ongoing issue. Searched subject on Watch Crunch doesn't cover all the bases.

Ian, that is the most basic version does the job (work horse). Later got the Prospex X which is a level up on quality of materials and finish/movement plus screw in crown and auto/self wind. I buy different watches for different reasons. Horses for courses!

Andy, Thanks,, appreciated. This watch really has taken a beating, under cars and messing around with motorbikes, (was even an old speedboat lol pretty sure actually went scuba diving with it),) also reminds me of Ex. Shhh married now, two kids later. Funny how different watches evoke/trigger different memories!

Is this to check your tan? 馃ぃ Did you know up to 40% of people at times refuse to wear a watch because of "watch tan branding." Maybe someone needs to design a see through watch that doesn't spoil the tan, guess a projection time piece would work. Got it sunglasses with headup time display/audio. OK they are on it - https://www.lifewire.com/best-smart-glasses-4172796
