Bliger Explorer homage

Shitty cell phone pic that I made too bright.
40mm case, 20mm solid end link bracelet with glide lock system. May be sapphire crystal, but not sure

The finest in Chinese homages that $65 bucks can buy :mrgreen:
Frankly, the quality level is much better than the Alpha stuff from a few years back.

One of my own, sterile dial with a Chinese automatic.
Bezel inserts 99p each, come in black, blue, green and black/red gmt.
Marks on the insert between 10 and 15 and just below 20 are actually the protective film lifting up, the insert is minty still.

Nice one JAS and at about 1/100th the price. I have a Timex homage.

Dude, you got a glide lock bracelet with that? That’s insane at that price. What a great deal, a good looking, good quality watch with a glide lock. I’m in.

I've actually purchased Bliger bracelets to replace some stock ones on other watches. The glide lock is far from perfect, in fact the one on this watch islides more loosely than on a Bliger GMT Pepsi that I have, but still it works well enough. Superior to Parnis versions that have a large flip lock with only 3 micro adjustments.

There is a silver dial Oyster Perpetual version that I might pull the trigger on.
I like the silver sunburst dial...this is the cheapest I could find, with a sterile dial instead of the Bliger branding.

Thanks!
Bought that one myself a few years ago Foggy.....at the time, this Timex was the nicest inexpensive Explorer homage that I found, although quartz movement.

Very nice, John! A pretty watch indeed. Just don't put it on a ghey-ass NATO.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Inexpensive fun. I bought this Explorer homage before I knew what an Explorer was. Turns out this was Fred's first watch he made for himself with some Explorer cues if I recall.
