I agree - many watch brands borrow elements from other brands, of course. I think your bronze one...

has a vintage Omega Ploprof 600m style dial and hands, but the case, bezel and crown don't look like others that I know of. Sort of like how Trias copied the JE Atlantis, which was a copy of the Dreadnought. Any maker that has a sub style watch is borrowing from Rolex. It's tough to come up with totally original designs.

Oh, Geez. I didn't sell any, but went a little crazy on buying I think. Jpeg Attachments jhargrave 118 January 02, 2019 04:10PM

I'm with ya - nice haul. That Invicta looks like a vintage Zodiac red dot dive chrono - very cool. Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 72 January 02, 2019 09:09PM
I really looked for that one. I had one like it back during my PMWF days, and sold it. jhargrave 66 January 04, 2019 03:06AM
I once had a Invicta, that was a clone of another not so expensive watch, sometimes you think, what?? James T. Kirk© 100 January 03, 2019 04:06AM
I agree - many watch brands borrow elements from other brands, of course. I think your bronze one... Mike D 68 January 03, 2019 09:01AM
And I even hear/read that Rolex copied from Jeager Lecoultre or another brand? (n/t) James T. Kirk© 63 January 03, 2019 01:52PM
My addiction Laughing flared up late 2018. I gave away one as a gift, one is for sale & three new to the collection Jpeg Attachments Jeremyd676 87 January 02, 2019 01:46PM
Great additions - love that Shinola. Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 68 January 02, 2019 09:06PM
Cool, you're OK with that "Proudly hosted by Photobucket" cr*p? I'd change as fast as I can for something else... James T. Kirk© 97 January 02, 2019 02:33PM
All my 2018 changes have been in one family ... Jpeg Attachments Dre 117 January 02, 2019 10:31AM
Nice family, Dre! Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 95 January 02, 2019 09:03PM
Very nice quality items all and yes, keeping up Swiss movements 'cost a watch'. Smile (n/t) James T. Kirk© 65 January 02, 2019 02:30PM
You've been quite busy, but I have too. Laughing Here are mine. Jpeg Attachments Mike D 126 January 01, 2019 02:09PM
That was a large haul en I understand you giving that watch away! Laughing (n/t) James T. Kirk© 96 January 02, 2019 05:55AM
Thanks - yeah, I actually like the watch, but it was a novelty thing. Well made though - I believe it's made by Steinhart - just never wore it as you might imagine. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 70 January 02, 2019 08:52AM
Well, I couldn't believe it was a Steinhart product...Wink (n/t) James T. Kirk© 67 January 02, 2019 02:28PM
You're right - I did some checking and it was actually made by Debaufre - that makes more sense. Here's a link... URL Mike D 71 January 02, 2019 03:34PM
Well, the Swiss made were made by Debaufré, but Zane Lamprey had the quartz ones made in China, so not by Debaufré, am I right? James T. Kirk© 95 January 03, 2019 03:58AM
I think you're right - that's why it was only $149. Definitely not the Swiss Debaufre. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 98 January 03, 2019 08:42AM
You sure have been busy there Mike! You'll need a another watch box. (n/t) RussMurray 98 January 01, 2019 07:02PM
Yessir! Luckily, I have a big gun safe I keep them all in - plenty of extra room. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 98 January 01, 2019 08:40PM
One of the things I like in the USA (except cities) are roomy homes... (n/t) James T. Kirk© 93 January 02, 2019 05:58AM

You had a great year, Chris. Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 101 January 01, 2019 06:37PM
Nice haul Chris. I particularly like that Max Bill and of course the Bambino. (n/t) RussMurray 96 January 01, 2019 04:58PM
