Swiss replica watches have become the latest trends in fashion. They are no longer being used for a classic look but as a symbol of class and social status. There are people who are wearing the watches as a form of identification. The main reason that has contributed to the popularity is the quality craftsmanship and high quality materials used to make them. They come with a look that is similar to the original watches If you like wearing fashion accessories in order to achieve a sophisticated look, then you can consider purchasing the watches They enhance your look and you can make bold fashion statements when with others.

Japanese replicas cost between $80 and $220 while Swiss replicas start from $250 and go all the way up to $1200. It can be confusing to see such a big price difference when every store advertises their watches as being the best available. I guess they can’t really attract customers if they say they offer medium quality. The $80 fakes are like shooting in the dark, I had a few that actually worked pretty well and looked decent enough; on the other hand, I had some that had spelling errors, broken hands and a really bad movement.

In the first place, you shouldn’t buy one Not only are the odds stacked HEAVILY against you as far as getting anything decent goes, you can get much better watches for your money. There are watches out there ( older Invicta models come to mind ) that look a LOT like a Rolex Submariner, are actually made with Swiss parts, have a warranty, and cost $300 – $500. Another example? Looking for something like a Rolex Presidential? Look at the Ernest Borel Nobel Series or a Sandoz. They’ve got “the look” and are actually very well-made watches with wonderful Swiss movements.

This one takes a little bit more sleuthing with the magnifying glass. But take a good look at the winding stem, the part used to set the date and wind the watch. It should have the Rolex crown trademark molded into the end of the stem. If it doesn’t – do not pass go, you’ve got a cheapo fake on your hands. But even if it does have the crown, take a look at the stem from the side. Is that crown glued onto the end of the winding stem or is it really molded in one piece. It’s the little details that make all the difference.

Knockoffs – These watches usually cost the manufacturer no more than $40 to make and are known for their price to quality ratio. From afar, your Aunt Millie and that drunk brunette you met in a dark bar might buy that this is a real Rolex. But inside these watches use generic movements and lower quality components. For a while these knockoff watches mostly came from Japan. These watches might look ok, but their Japanese movements, which can be a bit clunky, are a dead giveaway. Expect to pay under $200 for one of these.
