Replica Watches vs. The Real Thing

Aug 5, 2008
There is much debate about replica versus original watches in today's day and age. However, for many people, this debate is a no brainer. For those of us who do not have the extra money to spend on the original watch, replica watches will do just fine. Most people cannot tell the difference between original and their fakes. Replica watches are simply defined as inexpensive, or cheaper, versions of original, designer watches. Many luxury brands are copied at very affordable prices.

Replica watches are an ideal solution for the watch lover who does not have the disposable income to spend on designer and luxury original watches. There are beautiful duplicate timepieces based off of expensive brands such as Cartier, Tag Hauer, Omega, Breitling, Patek, Corum, Vacheron, Frank Muller, and even Rolex. With these high quality duplicates, you can build an extensive collection of watches without spending the equivalent of a brand new car or home. In many ways, replicas are the more economical solution. Original watches will give you the glitz, status, and glamour, but replica watches will allow you to have a financial future.

Everyone needs a watch. A timepiece is an essential accessory since it can keep you on time for meetings, appointments, and special dates. It is also an accessory that can say a lot about the person you are. Watches, both original and fakes, come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. There are leather wristbands, jeweled, and charm watches. It used to be that fakes were made with poor quality materials and had inaccurate movements. This has all changed in recent years. Most copied timepieces today are made extremely well and with the same quality materials as the real deal. These type of copies require very little to no maintenance.

While it may be difficult to find a copy of a brand name watch in retail shops that also sell the original versions, check out the internet retail outlets. When shopping online always look for a direct manufacturer and possible a site that shows you the actual picture of the watch they are selling, as opposed to a stock image. There are many brands out there that offer replica watches based on expensive original watches by couture designers and luxury brands. These are known as knock offs. Many replicated watches are not even sold in stores, but hawked on the streets or sold on the Internet. While they may be fun to own, always be careful when making these types of purchases, and look for a reputable company. There are many online retailers that are reputabe, and of course there are those that are not.

Replica watches are in very high demand today and that demand is only going to grow. While it is nice to have original watches, not everyone can afford to. Wearing a well-made duplicate can give you the appearance of success, status, and strong personality - something that you pay for when you have the original watch but pay less for with a replica! And if you buy from a reputable company you will certainly not be disappointed with the quality and workmanship and the watches will look and feel just like the real thing.
