    Is there a good Panerai-like watch?

    I mean, if I'm going to get one, which one is the best?

    What about this one. Casio MSY-501D. Not to expensive, in comparison anyway.


    Also available with a black strap.

    Do you mean Panerai-like in 'feeling', or more literal copies? There are a couple of literal Panerai-like options, one is much higher quality than the other... there are some recent threads that explore this a bit... see the 'Military Mark V' thread, about the cheaper model, and the 'Panerai style - Marina Militare vs. Marine Diver' thread that covers the old MM20 from Ken Trading and the Marine Diver from International Watchman...

    This is what many of the good people here have. It's a Marine Diver from www.internationalwatchman.com. For less than $300 you get an ETA 2824 movement and sapphire crystals. It uses one piece screws at the lugs rather than spring bars. It's about 44mm wide. The buffalo strap that came with mine is the most comfortable strap I have ever worn.

    Is it just me or does it seem odd that every week we have one or two posts asking about Panny homage watches?

    Dont get me wrong; I like my marine diver. But, are we supposed to give links and recommend sellers on the forum? Isnt that forbidden?

    Yeah the faux Pams are definitely "hot" lately Rob but the Forum rules really only mention this:

    3 Linking to live auctions is permitted for discussion purposes only. Links posted by the seller will be treated as sales posts and immediately deleted. Links to incorrect, misleading or fraudulent auctions are also permitted, provided that the sole intention is to warn other members.

    I don't think we link to live auctions alot, and we do discuss them I guess?

    Perhaps he was concerned about my link to International Watchman's site.

    Re: Is there a good Panerai-like watch?

    Motor.....not really concerned but just wondering.

    If I give information about an Invicta in question and give pics and descriptions I get some folks who seem to be really offended that I am attempting to "lead" someone into a sale.

    Truthfully, I probably sell one or two watches to forum members a year. It really is not a source of revenue for me.

    IT really is sort of funny to see all the links in all the other posts to ebay, websites, individual sellers, telephone numbers, and the like and this is all "innocent" posting matter. And then when I post some information on an Invicta, it is forbidden! Verboten!:-D :-D

    I know how to play the game like other folks do. Just have other associates (notice how the folks asking about the panny homages only have a few posts on WUS?) register on the forum....ask a leading question...and then have other posters post website links, email address, recommendations, and links to my ebay auctions! :-D :-D

    It just seems really childish to play by these rules. JMHO.

    Rob, I think a lot of members put faith in the opinions of regular posters, not newbies. As a seller, you must be VERY careful in what you post (as you have learned) when the subject is a watch you sell.
