    Ugh! At least it is WR to a whole 3ATM/30M, which should come in handy when doing the dishes...

    LOL, why would they even put "water resistant" on the dial. That's not WR; hell, that's practically hydrophillic!

    Want even more laughs? Read from the description:

    "Here's a brand you don't hear about too often – manufactured mainly for the SE Asian market and mainly available in Thailand, Burma and China, OP (Olym Pianus) are known chiefly for their Rolex style designs. This one is no exception but is equipped with good sized tubes and no premium for blue tubes at 3, 6, 9 and 12! The case finish on this is superb at this price point and is, dare I say it not far off that of the watch on which it is based. Bezel action is tight and precise with no slop. Superb value for money."

    They forgot to add: "Just don't get it wet"

    If it had an eta movement and a water resistance of at least 100m, Id buy it. As it stands, the text on the side of the case (TACKY) and the companys logo (TACKIER) make the watch look cheap.

    The tritium layout is interesting though.

    It is sapphire, so at least theres a small effort there.

    (EDIT: just remembered my dinky thin little citizen eco drive dress watch is WR to 100m. Weird that a little thin watch like that has a higher WR than this watch.)
