Have you see a fake watch in the wild?

I saw a guy wearing a RM11 at my hair barber shop this watch was so fake you can tell from the international space station, got me thinking what a waste of money cuz he could have get a genuine watch with the money he wasted trying to flex...

Is there anyone who hasn't seen a Romex at this point?

Just like those who collect, he might just be wearing what he likes.

No harm in that.

Yeah. At a group job interview there was a nice fella who said he emigrated from India a few years ago. On his wrist was what can only be described as a dark dialled shoddily PVD coated Daniel Wellington with a Rolex crown at 12 o clock and 'RoLeX' written above the pinion. I asked him whether he realised it was fake and he vehemently disagreed claiming it's legitimacy. A child could tell that it wasn't a 10 grand watch and yet he was trying to convince me. Unrelated, that was the single worst interview Ive ever had.

I've got a friend with a rose gold Daytona. It's real but she tells people it's fake.

Nice approach!

No one notices or cares about my watch :)

In addition to seeing them on a trip to NY being sold on the street once or twice, I was visiting my 85 year old Dad a while back and found what appeared to be a gold Rolex Yacht-Master in his drawer while looking for hearing aid batteries. It looked odd but I was shocked to say the least and ran into the living room to ask my Dad about it. Took a while (his hearing aid batteries were dead) BUT he told me it was a fake. On his grand tour through Asia with his buddies post retirement (pensions are great), they all thought it would be funny to buy fake Rolexes in Thailand. 

Sorry for the bad pic. I put in on the end table and quickly took this to run out and show my dad what I was asking him about. After learning the provenance, there was obviously no need to take a better pic.

The only people I’ve come across that care about what watch I’m wearing are the people at the mall kiosk selling jewelry cleaner 😂

The contractor building the enormous house beside us has a real Rolex but wears a fake copy of the same model while on job sites.  Not the approach that I would take, but it’s his money.

So does he have a secret mark to tell them apart?

Yes, I just bought a role of 12/2 with a ground wire.😂

Good question.  I don’t know, but suspect that the real one goes straight in and out of its factory box and doesn’t get left lying around next to the fake.  By now, the fake probably has multiple scratches as well.
