Let me take personal inventory:

- car has a clock (or two). Check
- cell phone has a clock. Check
- need for a fake Rolex. No need.

I do have two watches. One Swiss watch I paid a coupe hundred from a reputable dealer. Another Seiko my wife bought me for an anniversary present 20 years ago. Probably cost her $100. Still works great. The jeweler I bought my Swiss watch from said my Seiko is worth more than she paid for it since they don't make that style anymore. I kept it anyway.

I don't get the whole fake (counterfeit) purchases. The only reason you'd buy a knock off is to impress someone. If you really did buy a Rolex for the quality, then you'd buy one.

Now let me slip into my knockoff 1M while wearing my knockoff Ferragamo shoes, belt, wallet.

I don't get the whole designer (expensive) watch purchase...the only reason you'd buy a massively overpriced watch is to impress someone.

Don't say replica, I've noticed 'homage' is the new term and you'll get more.

Difference for me at least is that if someone replicated say an M3 that looked and performed the same as my M3 I wouldn't be a dick about it because I can afford a real one and he couldn't.

Is't it illegal to sell fake rolexes? Its a copy right infringement.

My point was more that we all spend money on dumb stuff we don't need. For me it's usually car parts and watches.

You never will if you start with best thing you can find to start. My problem is if I cheap out I will end up doing upgrade later anyway.

Replica Rolex? Best way to sell it is to do others a favor and flush it down the toilet, give it a homeless person or just throw it in a blender and then microwave it.

Replica (i.e., fake) or not, Rolexes are just butt ugly.

With which I have no problem...its the contempt from some posters for people who buy fakes who make me laugh...as if their motives for blowing $10K on a Rolex (who knock them out by the container load for $500 a piece) is any different to people who buy fakes.

Its one of those things. I wouldn't try to play it off as being real. It's cool to have something that's technically not legal. Just like a switch blade or an m80...

Fake are such bad quality I would rather spend money on cheaper watch like hamilton, tissot, luminox, nixon and the like. I have bunch of those. I forgot I do have a panerai rep with auto movement I actually like.
