    bigbris: that looks like a very nice watch.



    The movement inside looks to be rose gold. Beautiful


    It's probably copper plated. A great many manufacturers used to use copper before switching to other metals to prevent corosion. Omega still proudly uses copper.

    This one is shot with a Leica D-LUX3, other time's I will use my Leica C-LUX2 or my SonyEricsson P1i (phone, which was the one I used for the shot that confused you..)

    If you are seriously asking yourself that question, I would suggest to put your credit card back into your wallet because there is a lot more reading you need to do. Completely different leagues

    If you like the 60s in a pic you will LOVE it when you actually wear it.

    Really? I see the rado for 600-800 and the iwc for 300. They aren't that far off really. It's not like they are 5k+ watches.

    For those prices, they sound fake.

    Are you referring to El Guapo's watch? The IWC, I mean.

    If you are, lmfao. That sir, is most definitely not a $300 watch.

    Be careful of looking up fakes on the internet if that's the price you're seeing it for.
