What's even cheaper is the fact that it is all but a copyright violation of Panerai's design (Rolex too, I believe) and were I at one of those companies I'd pursue the heck out of infringement litigation.
Why don't you go offer your services to them since it seems like you have a better grasp of the situation than they do.
All this talk about copying and ripping off, the real question is what is original anymore? I bet you wouldn't open your mouth if a luxury brand decided to make a watch that was very similar in design to another, now would you? Is a rolex sub a rip off of the blancpain fiftyfathons? I guess this is a 'ripoff! OMG! fake! must avoid whole brand!"
, as well. OMG, another!!
Go educate yourself on these horological matters.
Bottom line is he didn't ask for you to come in here and shit on this thread with your douche bag opinion on what you think is a crap,rip off, fake watch.
Parnis makes decent homage watches.Edited by linsook - 2/29/12 at 1:48pm
