MI, United States Review updated:

Of course no one can spend under $100 and expect to get a genuine Rolex . When I received the watch from Rolex2u, I was delighted, it was obvious that genuine Rolex parts had been used in its construction; however the "bargain" stopped there. At first I overlooked the fact that the reserve energy gave out after a period of six hours, so if I did not waken during the night and give it movement it had to be reset; no big deal, after all it was just a cheap watch. However after a month, it started losing two minutes in a twelve hour period, then it would stop completely and start only when held in hand and wound by the twisting of the wrist for a minute or so and it was off and running again, however only for a short period.
I'm convinced that the Rolex Company is giving parts to back alley shops in China and giving them the okay to churn out many thousands of these watches, and in return get a volume profit. After all, if millions of parts which cost very little after the initial tooling is made were to be farmed out, and the slave labor of China was used, then a very sizeable profit could be turned.
I am very familiar with precision tooling and manufacturing, and I believe that the parts of these watches were made with VERY sophisticated equipment. Take for instance the area of the body of the watch where the band is attached, to get those dimensions and sharp corners, a shave die would have to be used. The fine screws holding the links were made on high precision screw machines made in Switzerland. Where the wrist band is connected to the watch two small holes on each side have been bored with a milling machine especially constructed for that purpose. The body of the watch has been machined from solid stainless steel and not cast, as is the case of very good watches such as Seiko
The parts of a great watch are all there, however the assembly is not, and nor should it be expected, after all, when a watch is assembled in Switzerland the pay scale is much higher than that of the United States, and the unfortunates in China are extremely fortunate if they get a dollar an hour, and no doubt they will have to complete so many watches in a day to meet their quota or they will be replaced. The People's Republic of China is no benevolent society.

In the past year I have bought nine replica watches as gifts or personal bling. The first was a Rolex Daytona from HelloRolex which proved to look OK but was not a working chronograph so I'll not go back to them. The remainder, a variety of brands and styles, came from Rolex2U and in all fairness I have found them efficient, attentive and helpful and have been well pleased. The finish and verisimilitude of their offerings I find quite extraordinary. I loused up the rubber strap on one (it's a poor design) but it was replaced promptly at modest cost. One other watch was faulty on arrival but was repaired and returned expeditiously costing me only the postage to China - I accept that companies there are unable to export currency.

My watches will have only limited usage so I've no idea how long they will last but, let's face it, they're dirt cheap and what can one expect for these prices?

Let me stress that I have no connection with this company and I sympathize with anyone who has had a bad experience with them but so far, touch wood, I've no complaints.

Hello Rolex another cheap rolex replica rip off company ! I purchased 2 rolex cellini prince replica models after reading on their website that I could get them with swiss movement .Upon purchase and payment via paypal I was contacted and informed by hello rolex that the description ilisting swiss movement as an option was a mistake .They offered to refund me the differance in pricing for the swiss movement, but i had to purchase the watches with the asian movement. I felt bamboozled, hoodwinked, and just outright deceived. When the watches arrived, they turned out to be visibly inferior replicas that came apart when I tried them on, winding stem came off as i attempted to wind, and bands popped as i tried them on.I ended up throwing them away without wearing them one time. Do Not Get Ripped Off like me .Do Not Patronize this Company !

the most important thing to remember is that some sites show an actual watch. but what you get is a poor quality watch that looks only similar. executive watches on cqout is your best bet.
