Hi all,

I am very new to repica world and I am looking for IWC top gun replicas . I have seen some pages in the net selling different kind of replicas.Some of them have topgun watches for about 330 dollars , some have 900 dollars replicas. Expensive ones have swiss eta 7750 valjoux machines ( web sites claim that ).I do not know the difference between asian 7750 and swiss valjoux 7750 , does expensive model deserve to be paid ? ( by the way it is v2 with full ceramic case with double ar coated sapphire glass ).I appreciate if I can get help about this comparison.

Thanks.

If the only difference is the movement, you'd better off with Asian 7750 ones. This is because in the rep world, you can never be guaranteed that the movement is Swiss. Thus, it's much safer bid and cheaper going with Asian 7750. Functionally, Swiss and Asian are the same to me. I strongly suggest you though, after wearing the watch a month or two, have it serviced if you still like it. If you fidn yourself don't like it, it would be a perfect time to pass it on to others who would like it. If you really like it after some time and want to always keep it in your collection and if you prefer everything to be Swiss, then you can always upgrade it with genuine Swiss movement you buy from a real watch dealer. This way the movement is guaranteed to be Swiss.

FYI, there are two versions of Swiss 7750, one is older, which only has 17 jewels. The new ones have 25 Jewels. Get the new one.

For Asian 7750, make sure you are getting the high beat model.

Good luck and welcome to RWG!

I've read all sorts of shady things going on with "Swiss" movements. Older models, used parts, using clone movements all the while charging premium pricing. Just get the Asian 7750 movement. If you love the watch and want to put a Swiss movement in it, have one of the forum modders put an aftermarket movement in. That way you know what exactly goes into your watch and not some Little White Lie. Probably cost you less anyway.
