1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks, guys

    Mine was a wedding gift from my wife's family. I gifted the Hometime to my brother when he graduated business school.

    Nothing out of control as far as quality, actually on the very low end in the world of timepieces. However, I thought it was really sharp so I asked for it for Christmas and Santa decided to hook me up today :p

    Can you base that on something? While it may be fake, why don't you substantiate it instead of making accusations?

    What, besides the ill-fitting quartz movement and completely incorrect subdials? It's obviously fake just from looking at it, and I don't even pay attention to Hublot.

    That is clearly a fake watch with a quartz movement. The chrono subdials are too close just like quartz and unlike ETA7750 that the watch is based on. There are other issues with the subdials and the watch in general.

    ^^ Thank you. I've no means of verifying, but at least you've stated your case which should have happened from the start.

    Ah, my faulty assumption — I figured it was so evidently fake that it was one of those prima facie-type deals, just like the Submariner posted earlier.

    highendstyle, in stitches, rnguy001, Badandy, Dino944 - thanks for the kind comments


    I was looking a little while ago and found that authorized dealers in Germany/Austria (not Nomos direct) had the best prices

    can you link the pic? im fairly well versed in spotting them.

    *edit* nevermind...found the pic...ill do a quick rundown

    the rehaut is so thin its almost invisible. Much thicker on the gen.
    font on the date is WAY off
    crown/lugs are a bit mis shapen
    crown isnt nearly as sharp as gen
    the engraving on the buckle is wrong. when you look at the gen buckle its much darker.
    see how the "10" on the bezel is chipped off? ceramic doesnt chip.
    bezel divots are too rounded
    case is stamped 18K. on a stainless steel watch.
    pearl is mis shapen.
    back case ridges are far too rounded. should be VERY sharp and clean.

    these are just a few things that stand out. If i could actually hold it, i could name a dozen more.
