I have this watch with a black leather strap for almost 10 years. Nice, unprententious, classy. Not a flawless watch, as I did bring it in for some minor problems such as water leakage, and a broken strap but they were fixed under warranty. Yep, the strap broke in two weaks, the cheapo German made strap you see in the pic above which is made out of nylon and leather.

Ooooooooooooooooo...my bad, I didn't know fake Omegas had bigger dials, thats all we had here in America, I'll look out for a better fake next time with a proportional dial buddy...

Why are you wearing it upside down?

Samwoo, don't listen to this. While I don't condone fakes, the proportions on your watch are exactly like the real thing.

Thanks, Mike.

Thanks. I fell in love with it when it first came out but when I tried it on, the 46mm made my wrist look like a twig. Definitely need Ahnold size wrists to make it work. Then the 42mm came out and I had to try it on again. Fits perfectly. I like it because Ive never seen anyone wearing one before.

I thought this thread was dead. But since it's not, how come when I approach max velocity in my M3 my watch starts slowing down?

Picked this up just over a week ago (stock photo from the company website):



My first really nice watch, and it grows on me the more I wear it.

I'm not saying it's real, but you're way off on why its a fake. Anymore, you can pick up a rep for $100-$200 and an AD can't tell the difference until they inspect the movement, or some other fine detail you can't see until you hold the timepiece.

Shockproof? No automatic watch is shockproof. My $3000 Tag Aquagraph is in for service, most likely the hairspring has picked up a little oil from a hard shot. My old Casio G-Shock was more shock resistant. But didn't look nearly as good.
