With today's technology the way it is it has become virtually impossible to tell a well-crafted counterfeit from the authentic without taking it to a skilled and qualified jeweler. This is especially true with stainless steel models. Advancements in counterfeit manufacture have progressed to such a level that it is usually necessary to literally open the back of the watch case and inspect the interior components themselves to ascertain authenticity. Some of today's "Swiss-Made" counterfeits can now run into the hundreds of dollars. In rare cases even into the thousands where counterfeit watch makers will even work in real 14K & 18K gold. Primarily Chinese based companies continue to produce counterfeit watches at staggering numbers and with current technology and the internet, Chinese based companies can now openly market counterfeit products to markets in the United States, Great Britain and Europe. But the real danger lies with the unsuspecting buyer who believes he is buying a real genuine Rolex watch from a private seller who may have advertised a fake as a "Genuine Rolex" watch he has and must sell for a substantially discounted price on the internet. What amazes me most is not the fact that the guy "must sell' his $6k watch for $1500. If it's a genuine Rolex worth $6K, any reputable jeweler will gladly shell out $1500 to buy it from him at such a substantially low price. But that so many people out there will fall for this. It is one thing to knowingly buy a fake Rolex, but it's another thing altogether to think you are buying a real Rolex and instead end up buying a well-made, modern counterfeit Rolex. The purpose of this book is to show legitimate buyers every model that we know of that is out there being counterfeited in detail. Who would suspect that the "vintage" model is really a vintage fake that was recently manufactured and manufactured to look exactly in every detail like the "real" model. Here legit buyers can see in detail the actual counterfeit version of a watch they may be looking at so they can see little inconsistencies that exist between the counterfeits and the genuine article.
A highly comprehensive guide featuring hundreds of full color reference photos. The Replica Watch Guidebook Series is designed to help inform unsuspecting buyers of the counterfeit watches currently being produced in today's market primarily by China based manufacturers. Many of which are such good replications that even a seasoned watch collector can fall prey. Those who do have access to today's top quality "Swiss" replica watches are rampantly selling them knowingly representing them as authentic everyday. This guide will help lead legit buyers looking to buy real watches to the knowledge of what model counterfeit watches are currently being produced out there.If you are thinking about buying a counterfeit watch think again. Overseas companies produce websites that are loaded with beautiful replicas only to burn buyers and take their money. These companies exist because people want counterfeit products and they can do very little once they realize two months later that they will never be receiving that watch they ordered and have no recourse. Buying counterfeit watches is just as illegal as selling them, only China does nothing to enforce trademark laws and these "non-existent" perfect watches companies make millions a year scamming buyers who can do nothing about it.
