I love watches and own a few vintage timepieces. I have been trying to get a Rolex GMT [ Batman} for over two years from my local Rolex AD. It should be noted, over the years I have spent a considerable amount of money at this jeweler to no avail and refuse to go on grey market. I discovered this watch brand on Youtube and saw this Davos Batman, and after watching several videos and reviews I said why not? This watch is beautiful. I am completely satisfied. Took it to get the bracelet sized and the watchmaker was impressed. Actually said he had to look at the name because at first glance thought it was a Rolex. No its not a Rolex, but it saved me $10,000.00. As a matter of fact i purchased another Davos Chrono Speedline Quartz while i wait on a list for my Rolex Daytona. Fat chance. In summary, i am impressed with this brand and their line of watches. Will probably buy more in the future.
Received this watch for Christmas 2019 and it's simply great watch. From the weight, size , finish, to the time keeping it's a solid 5 stars. It's such a good watch in its own right, you will not even think to compare to any other watch or brand. Thanks Davosa!
My "Review Title" says it all. Let's be honest, the 16157145 "BATMAN" is certainly based on that watch that started it all a number of years ago, the iconic Rolex GMT Master II.
I own the original Rolex "BATMAN" but as the prices escalated past 5 figures for that model, it went in the safe. It only sees the light of day on very special occasions. I missed wearing the watch and started my search for a more reasonable replacement.
I looked at Steinhart, Squale, Deep Blue and a number of other Swiss timepieces. They all make a model that is similar to the original. However, Davosa's interpretation of the original is BY FAR the best out there. It is true, the Davosa will cost around twice as much as those other brands....but....it is worth it.
For me, The Davosa "BATMAN" captures the look and feel of the Rolex but is different enough to warrant attention while wearing on the wrist. I do not like the term homage, I prefer to call it an interpretation of the original.
I like the Ternos 42mm case size and the weight on the wrist is perfect for me. It just feels good and makes me smile when I look at it. The dial, Mercedes hands and blue GMT pointer are perfect. The ETA engine inside is a workhorse. I really love the cyclops and ceramic bezel in the iconic black /blue color scheme. The bracelet is very comfortable and simple to size with the screw in links. The satin finish on the stainless steel is perfect for me. There is just enough high polish to catch a ray or two of light.
The value that Ternos offers for the price point is by far the best value for your money compared to the other brands offering similar executions.
The best endorsement I can make is the other day I wore the Ternos "BATMAN" to the office. One of my coworkers commented he thought "I put the Rolex away". My reply, "I did...this is a Ternos". I left him handle the timepiece and he was equally impressed!
The only issue I have had is that the operating instructions that came with the watch are not clear and you must tinker with the watch until you can figure out how to coordinate the settings of the time, date, and the 2nd time zone.
I’ve been wearing this piece for two weeks straight now. I wanted to give myself some time with the piece so as to get a good feeling for it. I decided to take it on my vacation to Cancun, Mexico. The climate, to say the least, is tropical and thus humid. To start, this is obviously an homage piece to the Rolex GMT-MASTER II BLNR. A fantastic looking piece in its own right and fetching over $9K USD, not attainable for everyone. I must be honest, I’ve been a purist when it comes to homage watches and never cared for them, well this piece changed my mind.
