  1. Thank you all for your wonderful advice! As suggested to me it's better I went with the San Martin with the NH35 and I did just that by ordering the black version of it on the 11.11 sale. I checked into Aliexpress everyday and picked up as many coupons and coins as I could and got my watch down to $159 which is great. Recently i won the blue dial version of the San Martin on the Horologique youtube channel and he very kindly sent it to me. The watch is very well built and has good bezel action, keeps good time, amazing articulation of the bracelet considering it is an oyster style
  2. Thank you for all your replies. For sure it seems the sensible thing to do is to go with the San Martin.

Both have similar or equal build quality but different movements. The watch from the Cronos brand having a PT5000 movement and the watch from San Martin having the NH35 movement Both of them homages to the Rolex submariner. Each to their own, but i have no problem with homages and as a person who can justify spending up to a maximum of $200US per watch, the notion of "save to get the real thing" doesn't really app
