Now that we've had a few pages, it's clear a fake Rolex was a good match for the OP. If anyone reading this is considering one let this be a lesson, don't be like the OP, buy a G-Shock or Seiko instead.

Revive an old thread yo.

I always wore a fake day-date for a few months whenever I came home from a holiday in Thailand in my 20s.

Now I own a real one (explorer tho).

I actually think it's largely because of the introduction to the brand that I got via the fakes.

My favourite conspiracy theory is that Rolex likes (or even directly supports) the fake industry, that's why you can never find a perfect replica that keeps reasonable time.

It isn't so much the money you save with the fakes, it is the really nice people you meet selling them that makes it such a great idea. And after wasting 15min of my life on this thread, I had to check - last activity for our short-bus charmer was 7/14, so apparently chased off by some direct criticism.

I'd probably drop the watch off at the local Goodwill and claim a small tax credit... if you're sleazy I guess you can claim a big tax credit... but too big and you risk getting audited.

That being said the OP should just get rid of it, craigslist or donation, and use the $$$ towards a Seiko Sea urchin or a Seiko SKX007 (both are like Rolex Submariner inspired watches). Both awesome inexpensive watches, quality movement, cheap so makes for a great beater watch, however looks like a million bucks (at least it looks like a thousand bucks), looks great on a metal strap or leather strap or NATO strap... and more importantly us timepiece enthusiast won't call it a replica, but a timepiece that has a great following.

That being said, I got my wife a real authentic Goyard bag that cost as much as an Omega. I told her to use it as a daily bag however she uses it occasionally. Then on a recent trip I noticed she brought another Goyard bag... same style different color + dust bag and everything. I wondered where she got the money for that cause I'm the one that funds those things. She said she got it used. Then I noticed that she was just dragging it around everywhere, leaving it on the dirty ground, spilling drinks on it. So I started suspecting. So I started looking for ways to spot a Goyard online. Turns out this was such a good copy that even the pattern looked hand painted like the real one. The only thing that gave it away was the font for the serial numbers... was just slightly off proportion... She admitted it was a copy and I did feel a bit more relieved. That being said I'm trying to get her into the habit of using her Kate Spades or Tory Burch bags as her daily knock around bags.

Got snookered on a Planet Ocean; the price was too good of course. I gave it to a friend and warned him not to wear it in the water. He did, it died. I would never sell such a POS watch. Deserves to be destroyed as the seller deserves arrest. Sorry to respond to this old thread but I really hate purveyors of counterfeit watches.
