    Well I guess I am guilty of buying one just to bang around, it does look like Rolex (the oversize version) if you don't look closely.

    Am I a fan of Oprah ? Not

    LOL! I was just teasing...I onl said that because she profiled them pretty heavily.

    I've never actually seen one in person, so I'm not one to make comments on quality, design or construction.

    BTW thats quite the nice collection you have there.

    The earlier models with Rolex Sub hommage designs were pretty cool, although overpriced ... way overpriced for plastic quartz watches.

    I admited I bought it just because I thought they look cool (price aside, appreciation to true horology aside) and I can bang it anyway I want, and I can just toss it into a trash later. Surprisingly they're really durable and hardly scratched after owning them for several years. And I've been stopped by non WIS who thought it's some limited edition Rolexes or something.

    I will post pictures later if you want to see it.

    Thanks for the compliments, a work in progress, a hard work of decades :)

    I have a family member who works at an AD, they took on the ToyWatch line a few months ago and they have been selling like crazy.

    I think they have the decimal in the wrong place on the price tags.
