Suspects held over fake Shanghai watches

Post by AlbertaTime » January 21st 2020, 6:00pm

I'm glad to see the enforcement. Let's hope this happens more often, for more brands.

Eleven people suspected of making and selling fake Shanghai-brand watches have been apprehended, police said on Tuesday.

Shanghai Watch Industry Co, a company in Yangpu District, told police in December that sales of its 60th anniversary commemorative watch had fallen sharply in November and that some online shops were probably selling fakes.

While the genuine article sells for around 1,900 yuan (US$275), those sold online were only 600 yuan each. The company later confirmed that these watches were fakes, police said.
"Buy the seller, not the watch" is always good advice. If it seems to good to be true...

That’s great news. F’ing counterfeiting sucks. Wow, 30K+ counterfeits squashed. Sweet!

Wish they had published the full names of those arrested.

I'm in favour of publishing names of convicted folks. Not so much the names of accused folks.
