    Bezel ring on Steinhart Davosa Squale etc vs Rolex

    The very first automatic watch I have was an invicta sub homage with seiko movement. I know it was shite even back then 12 years ago when I was a young guy with no money and never handled a good watch. Lol. The thing I hate the most about that watch is the ugly shinny slippery bezel, specifically the coin edge. It was as sharp as a banana. That watch kinda spoiled me as it made allergic to any coin edge bezel that doesnt have sharp “coin edge”. The Rolex submariner ceramic is my perfection standard for how a coinedge bezel should be. I mean you take one glance at it and you know it is high quality.

    The thing that has prevented me from buying a sub homage is that Ive never seen any watch that have a sharp looking coin edge bezel. They all look kinda Invictaish, at least from the online photos. I will post some photos later but in the meantime, can someone with both the Rolex Sub and the homage share their opinion on this? Am I wrong and the online photos dont do justice to Steinhart, Davosa etc or its true that they cant make it nearly as good as the Rolex? I mean the high quality replica I handled in Bangkok looked 99% like a real deal so making a good and sharp coin edge cant be that hard right?

    Photos from internet:

    I’ve got both Steinharts and Squales and have handled plenty of Subs but I can’t say that the finishing on the bezel edge looked markedly different to me.

    Thanks for the sharing. I feel like the homages look varies a lot from one photo to photo so that plays a factor for sure. Rolex is 20 times more expensive so it should be perfect from any angles lol. Any one with side by side photos?

    Depends on the model, it seems. The Steinhart Ocean Titanium 500 has a stainless steel(!) bezel and it's nicely sharp and grippy.

    Ffritz: i think you r right. My main concern is on the 39mm ceramics. The 42mm version is great in this regard. I found a really good video on this topic as well: https://youtu.be/-RUPD_q934Q
