    Which quality is this Audemars Piguet Oak?

    Hello guys,

    I'm staying in Turkey, Bodrum for 1 week.
    I have already bought in the past a Rolex Noob and a Hublot v6.5 ceramic black with ss bezel.

    Now yesterday I got adress from a friend of a good rep shop in Bodrum.
    I've bought an AP for 140€ (950lira) and the quality looked very good. After some investigation I saw this is not an ETA like the seller said but Quartz.
    I dont care I got a Quartz because its not that bad but only I want to know if I paid too much?

    I found these watches also on aliexpress and there it was for like 40 euro...
    I'm also a member of the dutch rwf forum and they said its a quartz and is maximum 60€ worth.

    But the build quality is very good, also the weight is nice so I really dont know which quality I have in my hand.

    I will go tonight back for more information.

    I will post some pictures, maybe you can help me out.

    Compared with an XF / JF? It’s complete shit.

    But you paid €40 for something that cost $5 to make so what do you expect?

      but XF / JF is like 400 or more price range? I dont need that but I just dont like being fucked for 3 double price.
      I paid 140€ not 40, but the quality feels really good. Its not like the cheap shit from other sellers that cost like 70. But still I dont know what quality I bought.
      Im going back to his shop to get information about this matter because I dont like being fucked over.

      He know I have knowledge about reps but I dont know he would fuck me over like that. He even want to do water test etc...

        You’ve paid pretty much the going rate in turkey, tho am a little surprised it’s a quartz.
        its the old adage, you get what you pay for.
        i wouldn’t say they were rubbish if there anything like the stuff they sell in marmaris, but there an average quality rep.

          what do you mean with surprised about the quartz?
          seller said and also another shop with lady who is in contact with td in china this is a decent watch.

          its even safer than my hublot eta they said.
          So this is just a normal average rep? Not shit quality like 50€ aliexpress?

          because this one looks really nice, build quality is decent and the weight is also nice.

          i just want to be sure i didnt overpay double because then im going back to ask my money back.

          I should keep this watch and enjoy it?

          because I dont want to pay for the jf or xf (500$)

            So quartz is battery powered? i really dont like that actually.

            my girlfriend bought a nice rep in another stop with seiko mechanic movement (winding) and only paid 80€...

              A chrono mech Seiko for 80€? Mmmmhh, I don't believe so... maybe it was a Mechaquartz (like that you're asking info...)

              So, you like it or not?

              BTW, yes that watch is the same than those that are sold on DHGate for 40€....
              That seller bought the watch there for 40€ a now he sold it (to you) for 140€... That's simple.

                I can only comment on my experience with the shop I dealt with in marmaris.
                i would expect a Ap of that price to be automatic.
                you need to do your research first, not after you buy.
                i am not saying a quartz will fail, just I would expect an automatic at that price regardless of quality.

                  Automatic what?! An automatic chrono for 140€?! No way.
                  Maybe a simple automatic watch with FAKE counters...
                  There are many TDs that sell the Mechaquartz replicas for around 120$
                  An automatic mechanical chrono (usually Asian 7750) sell for 250$

                        You think this is the same as mine?
                        or its possible mine is better quality?

                          Difficult to say, just to show you that between 24$ and 100$ there are many "lower tier" AP RO Chronos on dhgate. They all feel heavy... your may be a better one but I do not really know.

                            Is there any way I can test it?

                            open it or something?
