I thought a replica was the same as a knockoff. What is the legal difference?



A replica can look like the original, but doesn't have the brand name on it.

A knockoff has the brand name and looks just like it.

I could make a watch that looks just like it and throw a different name on it and that would be just fine.

But to make one that looks exactly like it and has "Rolex" on it is illegal.

got to run to my kid's basketball game
if your buddy is used to buying replicas, he's got to have a source now even if his old ones might be gone
hopeful that maybe he'll tell you where he gets his good replicas now.
TIA if so.

I just can't understand spending this much on a watch this day and age.


Are you a poor? Some people just enjoy nice things and a well made mechanical watch is one of those things.

You're buying a ticking piece of jewelry and will likely check the time with your phone, tablet, or computer.


Wrong.

Seems there are better things to spend that money on.


Definitely a poor.

this is the kind of feedback I am hoping for


I tried finding the site for you but I think it is gone or I didn't remember it correctly. It did have the words "only the best replicas" in the name.

These had the real names but they called them replicas so I guess they really were knockoffs. Either way they were legit.

But I have become obsessed with the Rolex Milgauss with the green crystal. (I don't know how to post pics) Any of you have experience with buying a knock off Rolex that lasts for a few years? It's not a status thing. I just love the way it looks but am not willing to drop $7k on a watch.


Buy a real one. Cut back on expenses, work extra hours, tug a few penises....whatever you can do to save up enough for the real thing. Shop around, talk to a few local watchmakers, do some more online research to get to a more well reasoned position on what exactly it is you want. Rolex cost as much as they do because they are rock solid and are one of the few left that still make their own movements (calibers) in-house. Virtually every other mechanical watch company sources their movements from ETA (Tag, Hamilton, Ball, Omega, Longines, Rado, Blancpain, Tissot, and many others) so you could spend $600 or $6000 on two different watches that use the same guts. I have a Hamilton and it's a great watch but I'm still looking for a nice all stainless Rolex for the right price (I'll probably settle for an Omega Seamaster though). With the real thing you'll have something that will last the rest of your life and will hold its value, with a fake you'll be throwing it the garbage in a few years.

re: Knock off Rolex watch?
There are "knock-offs" and there are replicas The replica rolexes usually use an automatic movement from ETA that provides the sweeping motion of the second hand that you see with Rolex rather than the tick you see with quartz watches. The replicas usually cost a couple hundred dollars.

ETA: I see this has already been discussed.
