People already wear their fake watches proudly. Just look at those wearing an invicta. Fake watch company, fake history. Dear granny lalo, tell us again how you designed the Russian Diver for the Russian Admirals, or the fake "swiss" watch factories. Should you buy a replica? No!. Get caught posting a replica photo as real on my forum and you get banned. That is standing policy at every watch forum I know of. Save your pennies and buy a pre-owned watch that you really want.

I might be wrong, but you appear to feel quite strongly about this.

Fake watches are like fake boobs. How can they be fake is you can see (and feel) them?

Should be a two part question. If you answered yes to the above, where should you wear it?
Probably easier to list where one shouldn't wear a fake watch:
  • Scuba diving
Other than that you'll probably be right.

Silicone is here for a reason.

What could be worse than somebody realizing you are wearing a fake Rolex?

Somebody realizing you are wearing a fake Invicta!

Question to all you fake watch bashers:

Do you bash fake tits?
I don't really give a shit about tits but openly embrace ass work done in Brazil.
Boob, lips, ass, and sew fourth jobs, fake jewelry, watches, shoes, handbags - what these folks could really use is a self-esteem-job.

Why the fuck are we even talking about this??
In all seriousness, and others please chime in, why does it bother you so much if somebody wears a fake watch? What if it makes them happy?

More to the point, are you comfortable judging somebody's character because they're wearing a watch manufactured by a company that didn't pay a licensing fee?

It appears that many folks equate those who buy knockoff products to valor frauds and impostors of all stripes. I'm more interested in what motivates the behavior than in making a judgement about it.

However, from the legal perspective, the purchase of counterfeit merch, does, at a minimum, support an unlawful enterprise.. As for US law, 18 U.S. Code § 2320 - Trafficking in counterfeit goods or services - provides for up to a two million dollar fine and 10 years in federal prison, or both, for a first offense of manufacturing or trafficking in counterfeit goods or services, and a five million dollar fine and twenty years in prison, or both, for a second or subsequent offense.

I believe it was this very section of U.S. Code that was modified by the Trademark Counterfeiting Act of 1984 that allowed for a proud achievement in Watchlords' heritage; namely, allowing for the Swiss Federation and Customs to take action against counterfeiters of the Swiss trademark following our exposure of the fraudulent marking of Asian made watches as "Swiss Made" by a number of low life brands, most flagrantly, by Invicta.

Federal law doesn’t prohibit an individual from buying a counterfeit product for personal use, even if they do so knowingly.

The complete code, including seizure and destruction of fake goods, here:

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/2320

States are permitted to make their own laws regarding counterfeit products and from what I could find, it is against the law in all 50 states for anyone to manufacture, or knowingly sell knockoff merchandise. Many states also have laws against the purchase of knockoff goods for personal use which vary by jurisdiction, however, during a cursory search of summary articles, I could not find a complete state by state list for either instance.

So check your state's laws on the matter - if you own a knockoff watch, or whatnot, you may be a criminal, albeit, not much of one.

There are two types of people who wear fakes.
1. The person who just buys a watch to wear and means no harm by wearing it. They are not a watch collector and know little about watches. They probably didn’t go out to buy it, they happenstanced into the purchase.

2. The watch collector who knows damn good and well what it is and what it means.

Whether or not you should wear one depends on what kind of person you are.
If you or someone you know has been butt hurt over the lies Watchlords has exposed, you may be entitled to compensation. Please call 1-888-who-gives-a-fu** operators are standing by.

I haven't necessarily equated 'legal' with 'ethical' for a long time, probably since I was a teenager. If one is not hurting somebody (for me somebody is not the same as a corporation), then it is probably ethical (i.e. stalking = unethical). So I don't have a problem with anybody choosing to wear a fake watch or carry a fake handbag. I do have a problem with somebody trying to sell a fake product as the real thing.
