I recently discovered an Asian-source watch company called Sangdo. To me, it looks like Sangdo watches automatic watches are Rolex inspired. For example, their flagship watch looks much like the famed Rolex Perpetual Oyster Datejust. But, the Asian-sourced Sangdo costs much, much, less. You can compare prices and features below:
However, the Sangdo watch is not a fake Rolex. It is an homage watch that proudly bears a large S on dial and makes no secret of its origin. Amazon reviews are also pretty good. This Sangdo watch looks good in this unboxing video. Of course, I can’t speak the language being used. Portuguese? Spanish? But, there are plenty of oohs and aaahs. . .
If Rolex prices are out of your league, a Sangdo watch might be a great Rolex alternative.
