The hobby of replica watches probably began in the 1990s. Collectors love the thrill of owning luxury watches, but they don’t have the thousands (often tens of thousands) required to spend on the genuine article.
Replica watch dealers generally fall into two categories. The first charge outrageous prices for cheap counterfeits that only cost a few dollars to make, resulting in poor quality watches (Breitling replica) that do not last anywhere near the distance that a quality replica watch (Rolex replica) does. The second category of dealers focus on the collectors, selling quality counterfeits that are highly accurate and made of good quality stainless steel.
Don’t be fooled – good replica watch dealers still make a pretty good profit. They charge much less than the scam sites, but several are part of a cartel, where they fix prices and availability of watches – you only have to visit a few of the online stores to notice this holds true – enabling them to control the market and make a very good living out of it.
A good replica watch will look and function very closely to the same thing. It will weigh the same as the genuine article and it will have the right markings and imprints on the case in order for it to pass a quick inspection. Dealers will claim that their stainless steel is genuine Swiss or Italian, but this is a marketing push. Replica watches are nearly always made from steel created in China, where cost of production is negligible, but have no fear – it’s still very good steel.
Buying replica watches from an authorised dealer is safe – you won’t get ripped off for a cheap imitation of the real thing – and the watch will be reliable and of reasonable quality.
