    Unfortunately, no more tapatalk since early May:

    I've had good luck with imgbb for free photo hosting.

    Red suits it well. Mondaine makes a good red strap that I picked up when I originally bought the watch. I also occasionally put it on this sharkskin:

    Wow. That albino Rolex is almost enough to take my breath away. What a beautiful watch.

    Not familiar with this brand... safe to assume it just a company that takes iconic watches and tried to imitate them so it looks like one wears rolex?
    There are several brands out there with that marketing philosophy, but Helson isn't one of them. Helson is a microbrand that built their name on creating high value tool watches for divers. I also have one of their dive watches in brass that I've been very happy with - unique and built like a tank. They have more recently added a few tribute watches to their lineup, like the GMT. But no one who knows Rolex's vintage models (I own a handful) - would ever mistake the Helsons for "knock offs".

    Here's the legendary Albino Rolex GMT 6542 that served as an inspiration for the Helson GMT. As you can see, despite the similar color schemes, they are very different watches.
