      I got to give you a five star rating for becoming a Patron upon joining RWI. Good job and welcome. Tuition is expensive so you will learn. I have two watches I bought before joining that are so bad I would not even dare to post photos.

        Mate it could have been a lot worse , at least you didn’t pay 1:1 grade money for it.

        Anyways welcome to the forum. Wear it for a while and then sell it on m2m. I’m sure someone will snap it up for up to say $140ish? Which ain’t bad, given that you’ve worn it and enjoyed it for some time.

                Well, it’s not a bad watch, profile looks good. I made a much worse purchase when I started out. Congrats and enjoy!

                  kavorca1 serisously… so I slapped this one on today and went out and about and made it a MISSION to flash it about… not even subtly. Went through a Starbucks drive through and he’s my phone out at the window to pay for it slightly tilted so watch is front and center… no comments… held hand out the window “to wait for my coffee”… guy handed it to me.. no comments. The watch was right in his face… didn’t care.

                  this is the almost sad part of this hobby… we literally have to come here for anyone to acknowledge and/or appreciate the same thing we love. Haha. 99.9% of the world these days don’t even notice have A watch on or they just don’t care!

                    I know a guy at work, when I commented on his gen IWC Portuguese 7 days and he realised that I am into watches he began to wear a different one of his gens every day and made a point of it just to show me. Not to brag, but simply because I showed interest. So he has the IWC, some gen bicolor subs and a Patek Philippe.

                    I am 100 percent sure that he would have no clue whatsoever that mine are reps, if I showed him. But I have never showed him. And I tell other close collegues that my watches are reps, and they admire them, but I know that they only show interest because of me. None of them has a thing for watches or knows what I am talking about.

                        tkingjr now you MUST share! Haha. Or at least share it in the “lemon” thread where few are posting their mistakes in good fun. I’m sure almost everyone has a story about a bad buy and it’s fun to hear about them. Some shitty reps are so bad they’re fun to wear!

                          It is a pointless game to play "flashing the watch", nobody cares. You could have been wearing a $20 flea market watch or a $100K Platinum Daytona, it means nothing at Starbucks.

                          1/100 will notice and know what it is. Once you find someone who recognizes it you have to then decide whether to announce it to be a rep or not. A watch like yours will have anybody who knows asking you what you are timing and you're toast.

                          I went through this myself, perhaps we all have? I had the Daytona but it got nothing, it actually was the least noticed of any watch. So now my watches are all about me and what I want, I gave up on the Apple watch world and sold all the reps that I didn't buy for me but to show off.

                            As I've learned from certain YouTube channels, most kids don't wear watches anymore, with the exception of Apple watches, and they have zero clue on value. Most have heard of Rolex and Cartier, so if you dip their face into your watch, they may assume it's expensive. Or, if you drove up in a 1978 Honda Accord or Oldsmobile Cutless, they may assume you are a fake.

                            If you try to fool the 1/100 mentioned above, you better wear a watch that fits into the entire picture. I have no doubt that a person wearing a genuine Daytona will give off a vibe of wealth in every way, from shirt to shoes, to car. If you wear a 5-digit Submariner, you may have a better chance to get away with a rep.

                                In the next day or so I will post pics of my purchases at Watch City in China where our Reps are made.
