Advice on Fakes

As someone that does not have the budget to afford watches from high horology brands like A Lange & Sohne but loves the design like the midnight dial Saxonia, I often consider buying a fake. Sometimes I feel that the people that are so against fakes are the ones able to afford the real thing. I don't want to buy the fake to show off. I really love the design and I wont ever be able to drop 24K on a dress watch. Let me know your opinions as Sugess make an interesting alternative for not that much but it does not look the same.

Sugess isn't fake, it's Sugess!! Don't let someone else's ego stop you from enjoying a watch馃槈

You won鈥檛 get much love for fakes around here.

Sugess make great watches inspired by luxury pieces yet still far from homages or fakes. Snobs be damned, buy what makes you happy. 馃憤

You seem to be saying two things. At one point you are talking about fakes - which are criminal breaches of copyright. Then you have homages that skim close to it by putting their own logo onto a very similar watch. I have no problem with a homage like the Sugess. I do have a general problem with Chinese abandonware. You have no service support. So unless you treat them like disposable items, it's best to have a relationship with a watchmaker who will be able to repair/service it.

They produce some designs taking inspiration from a popular dial or handset which are far from an homage copying every element of the build.

That is not to say they don't also produce on-the-nose homages to fund more original pieces. They're not mutually exclusive things.

The watch presented here, like many other Sugess watches, isn't a clomage and has many different parts that don't try to copy A Lange. Everything is different besides the night sky inspired dial in fact. It's like saying every watch with a rotating bezel or round markers is an homage.

As long as they put their own name on the dial, you鈥檒l get no push back from me.
