    What a joke. They haven't even tried not to copy.

    Very similar but at least 10 times not as good.

    Around 20 times cheaper, but they are in fact just fake watches. They are only missing the Heuer/TAG Heuer logo to became authentic counterfeits :D

    But texts on their website are the funniest thing, pretending to be original and own designs! :D

    The new Frederique Constant highlife seems nice, affordable and looks good with easy strap and bracelet change

    Nice looking dial.

    I really think the quick release straps and bracelets is the direction that all the brands should be moving in so it's good to see another doing it.

    Yes indeed, of course TAG Heuer did it with their massively underwhelming ladies F1 collection...

    I'm reading an International Watch Magazine from 1995 at the moment and there's an article about Hublot's first bracelet! Which is funny, because I'm sure we had Hublot's first bracelet earlier this year!

    Also an article about the Pequignet Chameleon watch, which had 45 quick change straps to choose from!

    Love this quote from the designer, Emile Pequignet: "A woman is ever changing, I designed this watch to thank them for being so multi-faceted and each day showing a new face to the world".

    Can't help feeling that is open to some interpretation!

    personally i don't like quick changing strap/bracelet system.

    something about it makes me feels it is not secured enough. But i agree, it might be the direction of the future.

    sooner or later i might have to live with it.

    I prefer the Maurice Lacroix Aikon (similar Genta-esque design) relatively the same price but yeah Frederique Constant always been my favorite. I own one watch of them that i intend to keep forever.

    How has the quality been of your FC? Have you had it for long and any issues during that time?

    Quality been great. I do had issue when i just brought it out from the store. I noticed the date wasn't aligned. So i sent it back. It was a trouble to fix because it was in house movement. But in the end they did fix it and never had problem ever since. Probably stays at -2 s/d since i got it back from the service which means it really accurate.

    Overall i love my FC but they just don't make diving watch. They do, but under the name Alpina.

    I really do not like Omega watches at all, except for one or two. This one is the only one that ever seriously made me think about Omega ownership, but that was before I found it was a limited edition and now trading for stupid prices!!!

    It's not even Snoopy, I couldn't care less about the Snoopy thing, it's just the overall look on that strap.
