Tiger Concept Watch Review: Here’s What You’re Really Buying

Post by JAS1125 » Thu Apr 18, 2019 12:29 pm

Tiger Concept watches has intrigued me for a while. They are a Hong Kong based operation that offers incredibly affordable versions of very expensive Rolex and Tudor pieces. They create homages that honestly can be called copy watches to a certain extent. One can argue that there are slight differences in their designs compared to the original source of inspiration, but at the end of the day it’s a watch that’s designed to look like another watch.

There’s a very strong following of watch folks who support the brand and what they do. You can find forum posts full of Tiger Concept watches and happy customers. The debate of whether or not homage or copy watches are appropriate isn’t what I wanted to focus on in this watch review.

Yup, back in 2012: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/how-b ... 84284.html

Interestingly, it wasn't a bad watch at all; relatively well made, a nice homage. Also interestingly, this was easily my most-viewed post in history, with almost 80,000 views.
