    Capri Watches?

    So a friends brother got one of these as a 21st birthday present from his parents while in Capri, Italy.

    He said they are made in Capri. I'm guessing some guy throws a miyota quartz in a chinese case and that's the end of that. The pictures even show horrible dial/date misalignment.

    A definite knock-off of a rolex down the hands, markers, and even engraved rehaut. Info on these is scarce however, anyone know more?

    I do not believe anything is made in Capri other than Limoncello. Very small island that I doubt has any manufacturing whatsoever. They are just trying to use the name associated with 'Capri' (high end tourism) to sell JUNK.

    While tourism is a big source of income on Capri I doubt it could support a watch manufacturer.

    Yeah, that's a crime against nature.

    It is "PROFESSIONAL" though so it must be good.

    Wow, I haven't seen one that bad since a little mishap I like to call "The Shark Army Incident."
    Encourage someone. The world has enough critics.

    Here is a picture of his actual watch. Note the horrible cyclops magnification and the crooked date alignment. His parents paid about $200 for this.

    I'm not sure, but I don't think it will last long with any kind of water exposure.

    If your friend's brother really got that watch as a present from his parents for a milestone birthday I'm sure it means something special to that family. I'm somewhat appalled to see it (and apparently their judgement) being ridiculed in a public forum. Why don't you email them a link to this forum.
