I met someone with a Rado (genuine, I think -- but did not ask) and it looked and appeared superb (style-wise etc.) When I checked the cost of actual Rados, obviously very high. Now ebay has some cheapo-fakes that look ridiculous even in the pics. Google pointed me to pages indicating that there are chinese, japanese, and swiss replica watches and the quality apparently (??) improves in that order. Cost also increases. The "swiss replicas" I found are in the $200-$400 range, not exactly cheap, but "look" really good in the pictures.
If someone has seen swiss replicas, can you comment on whether replicas pass the look and reliability test? Btw, I don't care about having a exact copy of an actual model...just want a watch with great (rado-like) finish that also works as intended. I could link examples from places like replicamaster but not sure if that is verboten.
