Imitation The Sincerest Form Of Flattery

Post by TheBeatles »

If this is inappropriate, I am happy for mods to delete.

Anyway, I was looking at Kickstarter for the latest goings on at Hamtun. Still some very very unhappy people there. Someone posted a link to a site selling the identical watches at silly prices.

Whilst perusing the site, I happened across this one, look familiar?

Oops, give me a minute Guy. Just clicked on the link in my post and it works ok for me. (maybe cos I inserted it, perhaps) Can someone else try it?

We’ve seen these before. Sterile version of the MK3 Trident but without any identifying marks or the counterbalance on the seconds. While technically not a replica/fake, it comes pretty damned close in terms of being a copy.
