We obviously have very different definitions of 'poser'.

The poser that wears Edward Green shoes or the poser that buys Paraboot shoes.


Every poster on this forum is a poser of some sort.




The thing about posing is that..... it's an art in itself. To pose with some taste and style would make you seem more, "natural" and less of a poser than someone wearing a big Panerai clock on their wrist. But at the core, we are all posers.

Some are just more subtle than others.




A fake rolex will accomplish the subtle, classy look for me at 1/10th the price of a real one.

I'm not sure you understand what that term means, but I laud you on your obnoxious forwardness. You'll do well here.

It's the BMW 3 series coupe of watches.

This is a ridiculous article...just look at the responses. I wear my Panerai every single day and i dont care who notices me or not, it puts a smile on my face. Most people don't even know what a Panerai is, unless you are into watches.

...I am speechless...


The logic here owns me too much. I have nothing to counter this unparalleled wisdom with.

Sure. I've had it about a year, it runs fine. All the chronograph functions work perfectly. It's heavy like a Rolex, it has the crown laser etched on the crystal, the serial numbers all over, etc, etc. There is no such thing as a Swiss made replica. Some may or may not have Lemania or ETA movements. Who knows -- they're counterfeiting the watch, I'm sure they could etch "ETA" on whatever movement. It is very well made.

The "grades" thing is bull too. There are two grades: Crappy and good. Buy a good one. The crappy ones are really crappy. The good ones are indistinguishable and intended to deceive (holograms, packaging, etc).

PM me if you want to know where I got it.



p.s. I am the dork who synced the second hand and the chronograph hand. It works like a normal chrono.

If you wear a fake, and your friends, relatives, co-workers, clients, or the woman you're out on a date with ask you: "Is that a real Rolex?", do you (A) lie to them, or (B), embarass yourself by admitting it's a fake?

Well if they got the balls to ask then obviously they think it is fake, probably because you look poor and act low class.

I love A Lange & Sohne watches, but cannot afford their price tags. I almost decided to get a good fake. Not to show off, but for the aesthetics and the style that I couldn't afford otherwise. Then someone on these forums pointed out a Seiko watch to me that looked similar to the L&S watch I so desired. Thanks to that person I now have a watch for about 1% of the price that I like a lot. When I get rich, I will buy the L&S I wanted. But it won't be a fake.

Many watch enthusiasts will agree, the big three are PP, AP, and VC.

What is it with the recent crop of idiots from Canada? Have we bred a fresh batch of them up here or something?

This is correct. Those have been considered the three best watchmakers for a very long time.

Myself, I'm actually more partial to Lange and Jaeger-LeCoultre than AP and VC. JLC especially provides immense horological bang-for-the-buck.
