The fascination with replica watches
We've all heard of those high-end luxury brand watches like: Cartier, Piaget, Rolex, Technomarine but because they cost many hundreds, even thousands of dollars they are simply out of reach of most people's budgets. It's like, should I get a second car or buy a Rolex and for most people it's clearly the second car. Let's face it, luxury watches are designed for the rich to provide them with a "status symbol" they yearn for that will help feed their, in most cases, large egos. On the other hand, we all have human vanity and if you're the type that would like yours massaged by such a symbol of affluence, there's a little thing called Replica Watches that you might want to take a closer look at. Replica watches provide the not so affluent with the opportunity to sport incredible imitations of various luxury watches like: Cartier, Piaget, Rolex, and Technomarine for a fraction of the price. On the other hand, the downside of replica watches is that in one way it could be considered a form of stealing.
Like buying bootleg copies of CDs or DVD's or illegally downloading music from the internet. You'll have to make that call but replica watches do "borrow" the copyrighted designs of the luxury watches. Plus, the whole purpose of luxury brands is to not cater to just anyone. They are manufactured and designed with the utmost quality with full knowledge that as a result, their cost will be prohibitive for most people. However, if you're ok with the whole copyright thing and your heart is set on buying a replica watch; then, as the old saying goes, "buyers beware".
Just because it's relatively dirt cheap doesn't mean its bargain. You still need to exercise caution and wisdom before you buy. The internet has become the home of thousands upon thousands of companies selling replica watches which makes it rather impossible to inspect anything you purchase beforehand. Not that you must inspect a replica watch before you buy but it certainly doesn't hurt because even in a replica craftsmanship matters. Simple things like, does it have changeable batteries or is it simply a toy knockoff of the original is difficult to discern in a picture. Omega, Cartier and Rolex are all popular replica watches today. While inspecting a prospective replica you should verify that brand names are actually spelled correctly. An example of this often occurs in knockoff bags, purses or shoes: "Prada" becomes "Prada" or "Chanel" becomes "Channel". Another thing to remember before purchasing a replica watch is this: Are you or will you be comfortable enough, in your own skin, to wear such a watch when friends, family or colleagues realize that it is replica? I'm not here to judge because frankly, I partially agree with both sides of the argument but I bring it up only, so that you are aware of the fact that purchasing a replica watch "may not" turn out to be the status symbol you hoped it would be. On the other hand, it may be just the ticket you've been looking for and if so - go for it!.
