Says it has same ETA quartz movement as the gen and comes with box set. Had one of the ETA movement reps myself from ali a while ago and they really are practically the same as the gen

Tissot PRS516 quartz chrono mate. Nice beater for the money. Movement on it's own is about 50 quid

I've got one from Ali. At the time tried a gen in a dealer and if there were any obvious differences they passed me by. Obviously couldn't compare them side by side. If they are the same thing they are very well finished watches for the money.

I purchased one of these Tissots from DH Gate -- PRC 200. Really fine product & solidly made. Popped off the back & examined the movement; it LOOKED gen, complete with "Swiss" markings on the movement. My inexperienced eye didn't help beyond this but this DH Gate product LOOKED close to gen -- even down to the battery used. For the price, one really can't go wrong. Just my .02.

these have been discussed a bunch on other forums; they are very very similar to gen --- aka if you like the style go for it!

Am I understanding this right, Aliexpress does sell some decent rep watches?
I was always led to believe that all watches on Ali are junk.

You can find a bargain but you need to tread very carefully otherwise you will receive junk. The good thing is, if they take the piss out and send you something which is nothing like they offered, you can file a claim that it was counterfeit and Ali will find in your favour.

I would personally discourage that if you know you are buying a rep but sometimes they just take the piss, so then I feel justified and have done it a couple of times.

I have a Tissot from Ali with the gen movement which looks like it might be a back door gen. Who knows? I don't really like it anyway.

Ali is dead for reps now. All the sellers have moved to DHgate.

I'm tempted by the $30 hublot from the same seller

I don't even like hublot but it has really good reviews and is really cheap

I kinda prefer the silver dial I think. Not really my style, but could be a good beater.

Just be aware that with some sellers on Ali, doing a dispute will guarantee you end up on this list:

Wouldn't surprise me if some of the "less reputable" sellers are more likely to put you on it.

The information about this list is very interesting (I had no idea it existed). I checked to make sure I wasn't on it!

It's essentially a "blacklist" on buyers on Chinese sites that the sellers maintain. Obviously it's unofficial, but I know Aliexpress sellers use and update it, possibly DHgate and others. You can see how often it is used just by looking at how many people get added to it every day. I had a mate get put on it for some bs reason, did a dispute that he was fully entitled for but I guess he pissed someone off, and I'd assume giving negative feedback would also be incentive for them to put you on it. Some sellers check it and won't sell to people on the list, but I think what is much more problematic is the shared personal information, often including full name, address, and phone number. Not exactly the sort of info I'd want on an easily searchable database. I won't ever dispute something on Aliexpress for this reason or give less than 5-stars for feedback, just not work the risk.

Just get stuff delivered to your work address.

Doubt the triads are gonna come to a factory in Bolton over a dispute on a 50 quid watch.
