All trash. I can't believe you are considering knock-offs. You haven't been in these forums long, and it appears you have misread what they are about. They are about style; style obtained from the self confidence you bring as well as what you say by what (and how) you are wearing. Wearing a knock-off time piece reveals a whole lot more about your character than you might think (or even want to admit). This is dangerous territory. Cheap is a relative term. If you're looking for a quality vintage timepiece, you are unlikely to find one cheap. You're question indicates that you not knowledgeable about vintage and used timepieces, so my advice is to save your money and buy new from a reputable dealer; you're more than likely to get burned.
