Sure every company has a dive watch but this...


is undoubtedly a direct copy of this...


and neither are anything like any of Rolex's lineup save for the fact that the Omega is an automatic watch with a black face. Oh and for the Rolex fanboy(s)-Omega founded: 1848. Breitling: 1884. Rolex: 1905 and didn't start producing their own movements/watches until ~10 years later. Just because Rolex is the best known (and don't get me wrong, it's a quality watch) doesn't mean everyone else copied.

Lol ok. They look similar...yes. But so do a lot of watches. Like I said it was a tough decision between the two. But I went with the tag over the omega because I like the looks of it better

My room mate has a samsung surround that is really nice! I don't know much about it except that it sounds excellent and wasn't too expensive.
