    Paradive Knock-Offs?

    What's the deal with these Longbo watches with "MkII" printed on the dial? They bear a striking resemblance to the Paradive.

    That''s not knockoff, that's counterfeit. Either they are using pics of a Mk II watch to sell their fake, or they're counterfeiting Mk II. This would be a job for Bill's lawyers, and discussion of Mk II counterfeits here is at the discretion of the Moderator.

    Posting a link to a counterfeit on the original maker's own forum is promoting Bromeó.

    Broseph.

    Brotholomew.

    Brochacho.

    Han Brolo.

    To my eyes, and on my phone the dials look sterile without logo? Which would make it an homage technically speaking.

    I understand that some watchmaking companies on alibaba sometimes show well known watches with a sterile dial as an example, to show that they can make this kind of homage.

    The photos used in the linked ad appear to be stolen from Patrick Kansa's 2014 review from "Ablogtowatch".
