re: Knock off Rolex watch?


The good ones have a nice sweeping second hand, a solid weight and when you look sideways at the band links, they are polished solid metal - not obviously rolled metal. Later, the better ones prove to be water resistant. But that's a crap shoot.

Citizen used to make a good mechanism on the more expensive fakes.

I bought a bunch once on a trip and gave them all out as Christmas presents.

but wondering if anyone has personal experience with buying a fake watch from a specific site/location (hopefully good) where is lasts for a couple years

Yeah, they look pretty real when you get them. Then multiple things go wrong within months of little wear. Don't even bother.

re: Knock off Rolex watch?


I have a fine Bangkok Rolex GMT Pepsi Bezel.

Little bastard is too small and the steel is obviously not Rolex caliber. But that thing will start working the minute you move it. Has a sweep hand as well.

I have never seen a fake that doesn't look fake personally. Gotta look at the crystal too. A sapphire crystal is obvious. It looks perfect and stays that way. But shite is heavy and gives watch the right weight. And if you have a fake with all those things you could have bought a decent Citizen or Seiko.

You probably will hav a harder time finding a Milgauss fake. Nice watch but not Rolex bread and butter like a Submariner or GMT. So not as many will try to fake one.

Why don't you try to make more money, instead of trying to be someone you're not.... Until then keep on wearing your Tag.

That watch is gorgeous. Rolex's have some serious pros and cons though. The MSRP has been increasing each year and they are essentially an investment. The con is that every 5-6 years you really should have the watch serviced by an AD, and that could run you around $500. Wish I could help on the fakes, but I've heard mostly bad things. My only suggestion would be to look around the Rolex Forums. Some guys will spend $20,000 on a Daytona, buy a near perfect replica for wearing and put the real one in a safety deposit box. Kind of dumb if you ask me, but that would be a great place to search.

I have 2 fakes from Dubai and 1 from Hong Kong.

They're all gorgeous and look better than some upper scale legit watches I've bought in the States.

Like you said, I don't care if it's fake. I'll tell people if they ask. I just like how they look but don't wanna pay that kind of money.
