Since the media is on the topic, I am going to dedicate this post to fake watches Charlie Sheen. More specifically Charlie Sheen in the movie Platoon - because this set of watches from Project X Designs looks precisely like something his character would have worn in Platoon. See how nicely that works out? And since we know Charlie Sheen is a big time replica watches sale lover (and warlock), he would have likely happily worn one of these (good actor playing solider wears good watch acting to be soldiers' watch). This watch is Project X Designs' latest Rolex replica watches sale mod called the Stealth Mk. III and Mk. IV. Which means there should have been a Mark I and II before it. I last wrote about Project X Designs here. As you recall, they have no relationship with rolex replica sale, but rather take new rolex replica uk timepieces and perform various modifications on them. The results are usually very cool. Rolex modifiers are pretty common, but those who do it well are rare.
