      Some suggestions:

      1. Change your circle of friends
      2. If suggestion 1 is not possible, then don't buy a fake Rolex
      3. If suggestion 2 is not possible, and you have to buy a fake Rolex, then don't stick photos of it online and invite "Rolex Fakebuster" to examine your fake Rolex
      4. If suggestion 3 is not possible, then learn not to care what anyone else thinks or says about your choice in watches
      5. If suggestion 4 is not possible, then just flat out lie and swear blind to everyone it's a gen. This could well lead to suggestion 1 happening, and then you can live happily with your watch and without unwelcome scrutiny


      Hope that helps.
      Oh bravo bloody well said

            If the only thing that bothers you is being called out? And don’t mind what which watch you wear, as others have already said you should look at buying a vintage DJ you can find something that looks good on eBay or Chrono24 for around $2500, or a vintage watch in general, Or buy a brand new DJ36 for around £5650. The question you have asked and the way you have asked it, can you see that some people may see it as coming across as being shallow?

            Many members on these forums buy reps because of the way they look and as a hobby, and not just concerned with impressing others, buying a watch because of the way it makes you feel. Obviously there are people that are only concerned with impressing others, but I think most members do not have those concerns here, that’s more a place for other networking platforms.

            Many have skills and those watchmaking skills that take years to learn. If you take the time to read through the many threads here you will see how members build watches just from a case upwards, it kind of an art in it self, point being is, these are among the sort of people that seeing your thread, and have seen this type of question many times before, and they have also been mocked.

            You may even find yourself getting more into the forum over time and talking up the hobby more seriously in the future, and seeing and understanding how your question has come across the way it has from some of the responses you have had on this occasion in a different way, after gaining more knowledge.

            As for now, have a look at the vintage DJ’s, then maybe head over to the Rolex website and configure a DJ36 they start at around £5650 or an Oyster Perpepetual, I think they start at around £4000.

            I’ve only been a member on the forums for about 1 year, I knew nothing, didn’t know ARF from BP. Ive really enjoyed being part of these forums and learning. So as I said you may find yourself appreciating and understanding the forum in a different way in the future. Don’t take some of the comments to heart. You never know we may see as a top watchmaker that we are all sending are watches too!

            A quick edit to my post, as you mentioned worrying about being robbed as this is something I worry about as well living in London. Maybe just wear the watch for your photos?

                    I am looking for the best option available for Rolex watch, which is not callable.
                    I am in a circle of friends, were they are very nitpicky about authentic or not.
                    I own a lot of designer by myself, as I am a lot into fashion but rolex is just too high price for me to be able to buy one.
                    this is why I need advice for best watch possible, even if it goes through a legit check on Facebook group
                    I live in Denmark, and there is a group called rolex fakebuster with a lot of knowledgeable guys about rolex. and want it to pass, through on pictures, as I don't want to be embarrassed with comments like "this is a fake watch etc"

                    the mechanism inside the watch does not matter at all, only the look at it, at picture, in real life etc.

                    I Hope some of you guys are able to help me out

                    appreciate all help I can get.

                    Thanks!
                    Lol. Maybe just tell them you forgot to wear your watch that day pal.

                      Easy solution - don't get a Rolex. Best known, most faked, most likely to get called out. Get a gen Omega, Breitling or IWC - there's many models in the 3k-5k range (grey market, of course). Forgot to mention: those are without a waiting list, too.

                        The problem here is that what op wants simply does not exist. You can't buy 500$ rep that will be the same as 10k$ gen. We could name you a couple of watches that are great reps, but still under scrutiny, they all have their flaws and they are distinguishable from gens. You got very good advice but don't want to listen to it, I think that I'd buy gen Omega or if you can't afford it gen Longines and be happy with it. If you buy any rep and go to rep fakebusters with it odds are high that you won't be able to prove it is a gen once it get questioned and you will make a fool out of yourself. People are extremely helpful to you despite that your posts really look shallow and immature.

                          I just want to add on, I do not own many reps, but the ones I have are what i really like and I have chosen the factory with the flaws I can live with.

                          Problem with your post is what many have mentioned, you cannot expect a $10k quality out of a $500 rep, but i must say for the 500 range, its on par with many low tier luxury brands. Next if you want to pass off your rep as a gen, clearly the rep hobby isn't for you. I own gens and people around me know I can afford them, wearing a rep people will not think too much about it, besides, it takes a really trained eye to spot one unless you have a digital display Rolex then that's a different scenario. If your circle of friends or business partners care about what you put on your wrist, you need new ones. You do not need to spend a bomb to own a nice watch, time to time I'll wear my gshock or apple watch and still compliments my outfit.

                          What I can suggest is you can appreciate the members not flaming you and giving you advice, no offence, you do sound pretty smug about yourself, no one cares what you do for a living, we are all here to enjoy the hobby of the rep game.

                            Wait. So you’re saying that you own a lot of authentic designer clothes and bags and such. Why not sell a few of those things and buy a gen oyster perpetual or a air king or a datejust? Used one of those can be had from $2-$10k.

                            I know for sure that a men’s LV bag can easily cost more than $2k if we’re talking about men’s travel bags (they’re ugly af anyway). Designer clothes can easily be sold as well. Those can retain some value too.

                            You say you’re worried about your reputation for owning authentic “designer” (expensive) things yet you can’t afford a Rolex? You must be looking at only the modern models or rare pieces or just flat out lying. Chrono24 has vintage oyster precision’s from $2k, which costs a lot less than a LV travel bag but you can afford the LV and Prada bags and not a watch that costs less and lasts much longer and will retain more value than a bag...?

                            It’s not adding up bud. If you’re looking to fool anyone that knows watches pretty well, you’re gonna get called out. Unless everything on the exterior is gen parts, there will be a flaw.

                            If you’re wanting to buy a franken rep with gen dial, hands, bracelet, hands, bezel..etc you’re looking at around (at least) $1k+ if you can even find the parts you need. On top of that, you have to buy a rep with a clone movement what would run you about $500 and then labor.

                            If you can’t afford that, you probably shouldn’t spend so much money on clothes and bags. I mean, I wear nice clothes from time to time but I’ve never tried to fool anyone if they ask if my watch is real. Hell, nobody even asks.

                            I don’t know. Something just doesn’t add up. It’s like that fella who was doing shows or something in Vegas saying he needed a sub so he can keep his reputation or some bs.

                              That was RSD Derek and his all sold out through the year by the way https://www.rsdderek.com Wonder if he learnt the wait list thing from Rolex.

                              Guess he found the perfect rep after all.
