Richard asks…

Where can i buy a good Replica Watch?

I have an Original Rolex Submariner, but i live in a very unsecure country, so im not feeling comfortable going around with it in my hand. I would like to buy a Good replica Submariner, and leave the original at home. There’s alot of webpages that say ( BEST REPLICAS HERE), but maybe someone of you guys knows one in particular that have true good replicas.

Thank you.

rmahadevan answers:

Replicas are illegal scams. Once you hold the replica near you real watch the differences will be so obvious.

A replica will not keep good time and will fail in a month!

Thomas asks…

How much would it cost to buy a new Tissot prc 200 with a blue dial in USA California nowadays ?

I was planning to visit america and I had this idea of having a new watch :)

rmahadevan answers:

That watch comes in many styles ranging from $300-700 USD. The blue dial face that you mention is normally on the sport model which lists for about $300 USD. You may be able to find it in a duty free airport shop at a better price.

Lisa asks…

What is the difference between Tissot and Swiss Army watches?

cuz they both have the same symbot, a silver cross in a red square..

rmahadevan answers:

Swiss Army watches are manufactured by Victorinox whilst Tissot is a brand in the Swatch group. Tissot is generally considered the more prestigious brand. The similarity of the branding is because they both emphasise their Swiss heritage by borrowing elements of the design of the Swiss flag, a white cross on a square, red background.

Charles asks…

How much is a Tissot PRX, silver wrist band, gold plated, water resistant?

I have found this around the house and I am interested how much it is worth, I found some watches that are of a lower quality than this one and it sells for 304$/213euros. So I could start an auction at 500$/356euros, or less.

Linda asks…

how do I choose and install a radon fan?

I want to put a fan on our passive radon system (already put under house and vented through roof). I’d like to hook up the fan in our basement myself but could use some help finding a good resource to choose the fan from. Is there somewhere online I can go to research/buy? Or would a Lowes/HD be my best bet? thanks! – P

rmahadevan answers:

A fan for a passive system needs to be sized for the square footage of your basement and for the method used beneath the floor of your basement to allow the air to flow to the pipe. If you don’t know how this was done it is good to question the builder. Typically either drain tile is used or gravel is laid to allow air movement under the floor to the vent pipe. In some cases, as has been my experience, neither of these are done and the pipe is shoved into the dirt and the vent doesn’t work at all.

As far as installing the fan in the basement, this not advisable. A radon fan must be installed outside the living space of the home, in your case in the attic. The reason for this is because if a leak were ever to developed above the fan it would force high concentrations of radon into your house. This is clearly stated in all radon mitigation protocols.

A radon fan is a specialized piece of equipment, that’s designed to run in wet conditions and at lower amperages. Also a manometer should be added assure that the fan is working and moving the air from the ground that is required to reduce your radon level. Don’t try to buy something at the local Big Box store.

If you would like to contact me I could help you out.

George asks…

How much does it cost, and how is a house treated for radon?

rmahadevan answers:

The average cost of a radon mitigation or the reduction of radon from a building as stated by the EPA and most health departments is around $1200.00. With a little effort in most market areas you can find qualified mitigators that will get a simple house fixed for this amount or less.

The most common method and in my opinion the best way to reduce radon is by depressurizing the soil below the the home. This is done by sealing the interior of the foundation and cement slab from the soil below and applying suction to the ground below with a special fan that vents the radon gas harmlessly above the roof of the home. This creates a negative pressure below the slab which disallows the radon from rising into the home. These fans usually draw way less that 100 watts and will give nearly a decade of worry free service. These systems also have the added effect of reducing moisture and typical basement odors.

Daniel asks…

Would you buy a house that sits on an area that emits Radon gas?

Don’t know what the levels are but if the house is retrofitted to vent it out is it still dangerous? Especially if you want to start a family there?

rmahadevan answers:

If the house is good value and if the current owner is willing to at least share the costs of a mitigation system I would buy it. You can buy it conditionally if the level is reduced under 1 pCi/l

Is an omega beijing seamaster aqua terra a good watch?

Hey guys I am planning on buying a omega beijing seamaster aqua terra watch. and i want to know if its a good watch to buy. Plus I want to know where I can purchase one.

rmahadevan answers:

Its a great watch but be careful China makes real good counterfeit watches. I bought Rolex watches that only an expert could tell were counterfeit. I wish I could tell you of a safe place to buy one but I cant. Even Wal-Mart has with out their knowledge sold counterfeit watches. Near the bus station in Guangzhou, the one near T-Mall, you can go to the Rolex head office they might help you to find a safe place to buy your watch

Lizzie asks…

How much room is there for negotiation on fine watches at a Jewelry store?

Example: is an Omega Seamaster‘s retail price of $2000 a good deal or can I get it for 50% of that if I negotiate?

rmahadevan answers:

I’ve gotten Seamasters at about 15-20% off the price and most jewelry stores will do that if you negotiate a bit. 50% won’t usually happen. The deepest discounts are usually from online “gray market dealers” or slightly used.

The best prices on the net on Omegas that I’ve found are at:
www.jomashop.com
www.bernardwatch.com

The only drawback is no Omega warranty. If you buy from a dealer, you get the warranty but you pay a bit more. Still, always ask for at least 15% off. Never pay full retail on a nice watch.

Nice watch doesn’t apply to Seikos or Fossils or crap that you’d buy at Target. Those are just like any other item at Target and likely non-negotiable.

Robert asks…

What is the difference between quartz and coaxial watches?

I am thinking about buying an Omega Seamaster but don’t know if it is worthy to pay extra for the coaxial version

rmahadevan answers:

A quartz is electronic and battery powered. It uses a quartz crystal as a time base. The watch is as accurate as the crystal and a quality crystal can be very accurate.
A coaxial watch is mechanical, with gears and springs. The term ‘coaxial’ refers to a gear configuration. A mechanical watch can be very accurate as well if it is built with high standards.

What are the most popular brand names in Bangkok?

I like AE, Gaps, Armani, Aero for clothes. And what about backpacks, purses? for me, i do like Coach, Nine West, but is it true that Bangkokian people prefer GUESS?

Please i need some nice answers no negative or judge on me.

rmahadevan answers:

Yes, Thais love GUESS. Every time I’m at the mall with my Thai girlfriend she has to go in a GUESS outlet, and it is always packed with Thai girls. Marc Jacobs is also popular right now. Many girls at my university carry Marc Jacobs bags and one Thai friend asked me to bring her back some authentic Marc Jacobs merchandise from America, while I was visiting home.

George asks…

Is there a Marc Jacobs outlet in Seattle somewhere? Or are there stores that sell it?

rmahadevan answers:

Unfortunately there is not a Marc Jacobs store or outlet location in the Seattle area.
But yes, the department stores sell Marc Jacobs clothing/accessories. I know Macy’s and Nordstrom definitely has Marc Jacobs items … And while I haven’t been there, I am assuming Neiman Marcus in Bellevue probably carries Marc Jacobs as well.

How can i tell if my prada dress is real?

Just bought a prada dress from ebay — which i won for £50.00 which was also it’s reserve price.
The seller said she paid £400.00 for it.
The dress looks great but i need to know for sure if it’s fake.
Any help would be much appreciated xxx
It has a prada tag on it but still not sure if the tag is real

rmahadevan answers:

Take it to a Prada boutique or to a store which sells Prada. Large stores have sales associates who are trained in their big designers like Prada, Chanel etc. They should be able to tell you.

Neiman Marcus can have them fixed, and if the sales lady is a real idiot, then you can take them to prada for repair.

Charity Jewelry? <3?

I was just wondering if you knew of any type of jewelry that supports charity? I was thinking about the Cartier Love bracelets, however…I don’t have that much money to spend. Please could you post a link, and it could be obtainable without getting it online.

Just another quick question, do you know of a good store that sells a bracelet that says “Love” or “Hope” or “Dream?” Or a necklace that has a crystal heart? Not expensive, and in the price range of $10-$100.

Thank you ever so much!

How can I tell if my bag is a fake Gucci ?

I just received an early Christmas gift from my cousin. It’s a Gucci handbag and she says it is real, but to me it feels a little stiff and cheap. I do not find her to be the type of person to dole out a few hundred dollars for a relative she only see’s at holidays. Are there any tell tale signs that I would be able to recognize to know if the bag is fake or not ?

rmahadevan answers:

Fake bags are not made for their quality they’re made for the replication look of the expensive bag. Fake bags will be very stiff, made of fake leather, and often have a very cheap material on the inside as a liner.

where can i sell my used shoes?

I have a pair of Louis Vuitton Shoes (authentic) and Sergio Rossi Shoes. I need cash so badly and I need to sell it as fast as I can. Where can I sell this items except for ebay?

rmahadevan answers:

Look up to see if there is a consignment store in your town. I know in my area there are used clothing stores (consignment) that specialize in designer duds. Now, they don’t pay you until the item is sold, so eBay is still probably quicker. Another alternative is to list them on Craigs List

by the way, desginer shoes are one of the hottest listings on eBay. People DO buy gently used shoes. I’ve sold several pairs myself and made good money!
