LOTOS 'Deep Ocean' Vs. MAGRETTE Moana Pacific DIVER

By TLex Life imitating art imitating life! The Panerai-esque / inspired MAGRETTE Moana Pacific Diver has itself been cloned (in a manner of speaking)! I had just recently spotted the LOTOS 'Deep Ocean' in Wristwatch Annual 2013, but was unable to track it down online - my German counterpart was more successful than I and so here it is -

It is the exact same (or I'm a monkey's uncle) 44mm Stainless steel watch case with 500m of water-resistance as the Moana Pacific Diver. However instead of the Miyota 8215 it houses a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. The font used for the Arabic numerals on the dial, of course is different, but even the same black strap with contrasting red stitching - it's a little too close to home! I wonder how much it is?

  2. Lotos...not Lotus. May be why you were having trouble finding them.

  3. outright design theft
    Expect it of the Chinese, not the Germans

    ahh.... this is "globalization"!
