This video might be a little breathless but it’s a fascinating look at a fake Rolex. While at first glance you’re almost certain that the two watches he shows are the same, it becomes clearer once you start seeing the innards and the workmanship of the face. Given that the replica is over $1,000 you’re paying for a little extra care and feeding from the faker and, more important, you might not know you’re screwed until it’s too late.
As we’ve noted before on the podcast, if you love a watch, buy it. But watch out: the scammers are getting better and you don’t want to spend a fortune on what ends up being junk.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
