    Hi B,

    you already noticed it: Your K-time is a fake, cobbled together from a cheap Rolex movement and any case. Likely even the movement is from Baumgartner, the second source for this summit of watch engineering:

    I think he was referring to the ebay link, which is quite amusing to read.

    But I think - nothing in that link is Rolex. Correct?

    B.

    I gotta say that I don't know Rolex. Or K-mart watches for that matter. But I do know a good joke when I see it. Thanks for the laugh. It wasn't all in the ebay listing either.

    Cheers brother!
