Just looking for opinions, I know they are on the low end but I did see some interesting looking watches last night on ShopNBC. I did see a white dial diver that looks nice, very inexpensive, comparable to an Invicta white dial diver. Both have japanese automatic movements, both around 45mm. Any thoughts on the brand?

Yes - the answer was in your post:

last night on ShopNBC.
Who made up the name for the brand?

"Let's pick a really expensive sounding name! You know, something like Patek Philippe!"

"Philippe is too general, and we can't use Patek because we'll be sued. Same with Audemars, and Piguet is out too."

"Nuts, how about we add the name of a really hot actress to a Swiss name that's synonymous with quality?"

"I like that. Constantin can't cause any problems. After all, it was not only a watch but a movie.... and Rachel Weisz was in it! BINGO!"

"AWESOME! Let's run it by the legal department."

:blink:
