A watch to go with my F80

The small dials look like the M gauges.

OP,

Is that an actual watch? It doesn't look that bad. I am not a watch guy and do not mind to add to my collection (or lack thereof), G-Shocks.

The Group B Evo is a stunning watch, especially the light blue color scheme.

Nice watch. It has a Generic Sellita movement but it’s pretty good.

I just picked up a nice piece - will post a photo soon

The listing says "assembled in Germany" but no manufacturer.
The movement (SW500) is made by Sellita, well known swiss company that many luxury watchmaker use for some of their chronographs.
Even Tag Heuer uses the same movement for their Carrera Caliber 16 watched

Looks pretty nice. Your photos actually look better than the sales photos.

I looked up the part number and msrp is $1,900, which puts it in Tag Heuer, Oris and Hamilton territory. Can this one hold its own vs those?

It is a nice watch but it's no Tag Heuer.
I got it on ebay for $600 which is still a bit much, but it was brand new with warranty and everything.

great, thanks for the feedback. don't blame you at all for pulling the trigger at $600...that's the price of entry for merely decent automatics.

i like the design, i might be a buyer at that price...

the same seller has another one on eBay. This is a MB dealership in NC. I have no idea how they can sell those watches for that price.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M-PERFO...5/283333598041

The listing has 18 days left on it. If it doesn't sell buy then, the seller changes the listing to "Or better offer", and you can get it for less than the asking price.

Ditto. I got it for $650, wouldn’t have paid $1900

I really like it at that price though
