Having bought and sold a few watches over the years this is my collection of gens and reps at the moment. 

I have decided not to exceed the number of watches this box can hold so one of these might be up for sale if I am tempted by another one. Any guesses to which ones are gen and which ones are gen?

The ALS, Daytona, FM, Seamaster and AP are reps. Jury is still out on the Bvlgari

Good guess but not entirely correct. I love this game.

Clue: Now that most of you are not identifying one of the gen right I am wondering whether I should sell this gen and just move to reps entirely.

The answer finally:

Reps: Lange, Bvlgari, Daytona , AP, FM

Gens: Rado and Diesel Are the obvious ones. The Seamaster is a gen.

I have had a few gens and reps of the same model and to be honest the difference to me does not warrant the huge price hike for gens. I understand why the gens are expensive but as a person who just loves the aesthetics of a watch I think I will be going all reps.

I have had a gen daytona in the past which i sold and bought this ARF version. To me the difference between the gen and the rep is almost negligible. Of Course under the magnifying glass you will notice the difference but in real life situations they are identical.

The Diesel was the watch that first got me into watches and since then my taste in watches has changed gradually.  Both the Diesel and the Rado can't be sold because they were gifts from the wife otherwise they would have long gone.
