    Luckily for you, AM0184 exist in white, while AM0194 also exist in white but with golden inlay (but you don't want AM0194 in white anyway).
    Aliexpress opened pre-order for 11/11 but AM0184 is not as low as the previous promotion.
    Amazon lists the one with numerals as AM0184 but the 0194 is buried in the color selection menu. Aliexpress has it as AM0194. Amazon has these is stock for just a few dollars more and you can have it in 2 days.

    Starking has just released it's high-beat Submariner homage!

    Link: TUKF

    Color options are quite limited right now (green, and then blue/gold two-tone), and I wouldn't advise buying at that price (too high, even at the 11/11 Pre-Order price of $102.60), but it's an encouraging development. This would be a good one to consider when the price eventually falls.

    Yep, still too expensive to compete with Loreo and Parnis.

    Only 10OM WR? While the Starking may have a 28,800 movement, the Invicta Pro Divers are much better watches. I would rather have an NH35A in that price range, and 200M WR is a bare minimum for $100+.

    It wasn't just released, it already existed when I purchased my first am0184, but I found it too expensive, no solid end links and dubious pictures showing many inconsistencies, even one or two with Rolex engraved in the rehaut.

    Swapped out the light brown strap of the Black Beauty Sterling for a dark brown strap I had. Should i use light brown or dark brown strap?

    Indeed, it's sort of bizarre to see Starking enter a market where they are not a value player. The Invicta is clearly the leader here except for those who can't abide a 3Hz, 6bps movement.

    I saw that too. I'd like to think that was just sloppy photoshopping of a stolen photograph rather than photoshopping their brand name onto a conterfeit from the same factory. I find subs about as interesting as beige paint though, so I've never paid much attention to how to authenticate one. Perhaps someone who knows Rolex subs well can say whether that's a real Rolex or a fake one.

    Additionally, the other non-render (I think) sales photos I've found of this watch, not only the Rolex wrist shot, are clearly photoshopped between color variations. I guess if you've saved money on designers by lifting someone else's design, you might as well save on photographers too.
