Luxury Replica Rolex Watches for Cheap Sales on the Internet

Looking for cheap Rolex replica watches on the internet? Better think twice before making that purchase. In this in-depth feature from the WatchTime archives, we explore how sales of these counterfeit watches are hurting both collectors and the watch industry.

For some watch collectors, the temptation is just too much. “I have seen quite respectable watch collectors with nice collections who couldn’t get their hands on that one limited-edition piece that they wanted,” says Beatrice de Quervain, a veteran U.S. watch executive and most recently head of Hublot North America. “They always buy from their authorized dealer, but then, just for that one piece, they broke down and went to an unauthorized source on the Internet. And sure enough, they got burned. They paid $20,000, $25,000.” What they got, de Quervain says, was a counterfeit.

Counterfeit Replica Rolex

De Quervain’s comments came at a recent meeting of the American Watch Association to discuss the problem of counterfeit watches. AWA invited WatchTime to sit in on the meeting.

The message from the assembled watch company executives and their legal counsels is that, more than ever, watch collectors must be aware – and beware – of the dangers of buying brand-name luxury replica Rolex watches through unauthorized dealers, particularly retail watch sites on the Internet.

That’s because of a recent spike in production of so-called “superfakes,” counterfeit reproductions of popular name-brand models, made primarily in China, that bear a remarkable resemblance to the real thing. “Twenty years ago the fakes were really fake,” says Michael Benavente, managing director of Gucci Watches & Jewelry North America. “You looked at it really quick and you could see it was trash.”

Confiscated Counterfeit Watches

Not anymore. These days, watch executives swap stories about counterfeit watches that are such spitting images of the real McCoys that the brands themselves have trouble spotting them. It’s not just the imitation of what the industry calls “the appearance parts” (case, dial, bracelet, etc.); it’s also the quality of the mechanical movements inside. Michel Arnoux, head of the anti-counterfeiting unit of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (FH), cites a counterfeit Hublot Big Bang tourbillon watch seized by Swiss customs officials. Everything about the watch seemed like a real Hublot, down to the vanilla-scented rubber strap. Only on closer inspection did he find tell-tale signs of a fake: a piece of plastic in the case where carbon should be, a crystal that should have been nonreflective, but wasn’t. But what was most striking was the movement. “That was one of the first times I’ve held in my hand a fake tourbillon watch, a real high-precision mechanism,” Arnoux told Swiss Broadcasting Corp.’s swissinfo.ch news agency. “The counterfeiters have now mastered ultra-complex movements.”

Almost every luxury Swiss replica watches brand Rolex is dealing with the superfake phenomenon, says AWA’s chairman, Jon Omer, former head of DeWitt America LLC. “We are now faced with a new onslaught, which is getting bigger. We’re talking about pieces being sold in excess of $50,000 and $100,000 that are counterfeit watches. Everyone has to contend with it.” Including watch collectors, Omer says. AWA claims that the only protection a consumer has is to buy from an authorized dealer. (Counterfeit watches should not be confused with so-called “gray-market” watches. Unlike counterfeits, gray-market watches are produced by a brand, but sold outside the brand’s authorized retail network. As with counterfeits, AWA opposes the importation and sale of gray-market goods in the United States.)

AWA and its 30-plus member watch companies have been contending with counterfeiters for decades. The watch companies act independently to protect their trademarks and branded products. Some of them spend fortunes annually in a multi-front battle, working with U.S. Customs and federal, state, and local law-enforcement agencies, and even their own private investigators, to fight criminals who steal their intellectual property (IP).

Washington-based AWA works on the legislative and regulatory front. AWA is not a traditional trade association that offers a wide array of member services. Its mission is very specific: to be the voice of its members in Washington, ensuring that the watch industry has input into legislation affecting it on a host of issues ranging from tariffs to regulations on alligator and reptile watch bands to mercury levels in button-cell watch batteries. The association’s legal counsel is the prominent Washington, D.C., law firm Covington & Burling.

In the counterfeit fight, AWA has played an important role. “The association was the prime catalyst in moving the 1984 Trademark Anti-counterfeiting Act through the U.S. House of Representatives and on to final enactment,” says Executive Director Emilio “Toby” Collado. That act made counterfeiting a felony for the first time. A decade later, AWA led the way in drafting and lobbying for stronger weapons against counterfeiters. “We organized the multi-industry coalition that won enactment of the 1996 act which toughened penalties and gave trademark owners stronger search and seizure rights.”

These days AWA is working to pass the so-called “Rogue Websites Bill” (the Protect IP Act of 2011) which would help to shut down Internet sites that sell counterfeit fake Rolex watches uk. That battle is ongoing, Collado says, in the face of stiff opposition from the Internet industry. “In addition, we are working with others to increase punishments for repeat intellectual property offenders and for IP crimes involving gangs and organized criminal enterprises.”

Normally the watch industry stays mum about its anti-counterfeiting efforts. “We work without fanfare or klieg lights,” Collado says. Indeed, the issue of counterfeits is so sensitive that a number of executives at the AWA roundtable spoke to WatchTime only on condition of anonymity. “In our business,” says Omer, “we fight counterfeiters below the radar. But this explosion of superfakes is going to have a more and more negative impact, not only on the brands, but on the consumer.”

Replica Authentic Rolex Daytona

That has prompted AWA to sound the alarm. It recently posted on its website a document it calls “The 10 Evils of Counterfeit Watches” in an effort to raise consumer awareness about what Collado calls the “scourge” of counterfeiting.

The document summarizes the main points made by the Replica Rolex Submariner watch executives and lawyers at the AWA roundtable about why consumers should shun counterfeit watches.

AWA is aware that in the American marketplace, “counterfeit” is not necessarily a dirty word. Some people proudly buy and wear them. David Perlman, counsel for Citizen Watch Co. of America, cites the example of Hermès handbags. “They cost thousands of dollars,” he says, “but we all know people who have counterfeit Hermès bags that you can get for a couple hundred dollars. They are looking to get something they know isn’t ‘real’ for fashion or whatever reason. That’s the environment we’re operating in. It’s a cultural thing.”

“There’s a concept in the consumer’s mind that this is a victimless crime,” says Brian Brokate, an attorney who works closely with Rolex North America. “They think ‘Who am I hurting? Some big luxury group? Some big Swiss watch company? Who cares?’”

AWA members argue that there are victims all along the counterfeit watch production and distribution pipeline.

Watch counterfeiting is a huge industry. Switzerland’s FH estimates that 40 million counterfeit watches are produced annually, 25 percent more than Switzerland’s entire annual output. Counterfeit watch sales amounted to around 1 billion Swiss francs in 2011 ($1.08 billion), according to the FH. Law enforcement officials say that the counterfeiting industry is dominated by organized crime and uses child labor. China, by all accounts, is the capital of counterfeit watchmaking; its epicenter, according to the FH, is Guangdong province. The FH’s Arnoux told swissinfo.ch that one reason for the recent growth in counterfeit Rolex replica watches online was that “Chinese triads were looking for new outlets to invest the colossal sums they garnered from online sports betting.” Law enforcement officials also claim that counterfeiting has links to international terrorism as well. Moreover, the notion that there is no harm in buying a $50 counterfeit Rolex because that customer would not have bought a real Rolex is a fallacy, the AWA says. There are plenty of negative impacts from such a sale and they add up.

The losers in that transaction are the producer of a legitimate $50 watch and the U.S. retailer and sales clerk who make one less sale. Instead, there’s a good chance the sale went to an Internet retailer based outside the United States, who does not employ Americans or pay U.S taxes.

Another victim: consumer protection. Legitimate watch companies abide by American consumer protection laws, such as the percentage of lead in a watchcase or the ban by some states on mercury in watch batteries. Producers of counterfeits pay no attention to such regulations; their watches can contain toxic materials like lead, cadmium and mercury.

Trademark owners are huge losers. “As brands, we spend our money building brand equities,” says Omer, “through establishing the right retailer partnerships, by spending millions marketing the brand in the correct way. None of these counterfeiters are doing this. They’re parasites just feeding off it.”

Says Patek Philippe USA Chairman Hank Edelman, “Counterfeiting undermines the concept of trademarks. What is the value of a trademark? The whole concept of trademark law is to protect something that has been built over generations. That is being shot down by counterfeiters.” Part of AWA’s message to people who knowingly buy counterfeit goods is that counterfeiting is a crime; buying counterfeit goods supports criminal activity.

Finally, there are the many unsuspecting victims who mistakenly believe the name-brand watch they bought is the real deal. “We have clients coming to the customer service desk in our boutique just to size the watch,” says Thierry Prissert, CEO of Breitling North America. “And we have to tell them, to their surprise, that the watch is counterfeit.” Prissert advocates a strong consumer education program about counterfeit watches. “We won’t fix the problem of the gangs making those Replica Rolex Datejust watches, but at least maybe we can protect our consumers by telling them that in the watch business, buying on the Internet exposes you to tremendous risk because you expose yourself to a fake watch.”

Meanwhile, the replica Rolex watches company wars against those who steal their intellectual property go on. The counterfeiters are formidable foes. Their ability to duplicate watches continually improves. And not just a brand’s watches; they also create counterfeit boxes, warranties, even its website (so-called “mirror sites”). One brand developed hologram stickers to help distinguish its watches from fakes. The counterfeiters duplicated those, too. Says Citizen’s Perlman, “It’s a never-ending battle for a lot of reasons and you can spend an awful lot of money on it. You can never eradicate the problem entirely, but it’s still worth it. We owe it to our companies, our retailers and our consumers to do as much as we can.”

Five things you (almost certainly) didn’t know about the Replica Rolex Daytona UK

The Daytona wasn’t always Rolex’s most desirable watch: as James Dowling explains, there is plenty still to learn about one of the world’s most over-analysed Rolex replica watches uk.

1. All Replica Rolex Daytonas are Cosmographs but not all Cosmographs are Daytonas

The name Cosmograph was originally used on the Rolex 6062 Oyster Moonphase watch from the 1950s; where, you must admit, it made a lot more sense as a model name. It then faded away and was resurrected for the 6239 in 1963.

2. The Replica Rolex Daytona name almost never happened

We tend to think of Rolex as a very focused and decisive firm; this wasn’t the case in the 1950s & 60s, when there was often indecision about model names. The Submariner was almost called the Rolex Skin Diver and some watches found their way to the market with dials so marked, similarly some early Turn-O-Graphs are signed Monometer and the Rolex Replica Daytona watches was originally planned to be called the Le Mans.

3. It was a commercial failure

Part of the reason manual wind Daytonas are so valuable today is that not many were made; essentially, at the time it was a commercial failure. When I bought my first Rolex in the late 1970s (A 1675 GMT), I enquired about a discount and the salesman responded, “Sorry sir, we don’t discount Rolex, but if you want one of the Daytonas, I can give you 20% off”.

4. All gold chronographs are chronometers but not all say so

On the manual wind Daytonas, the movement is different in the steel & in the gold versions. The steel ones have movements regulated in 3 positions only; whilst all the gold ones are COSC tested chronometers; although it was only in the last few years of the 6263 and 6265 production that the dials were so marked to reflect this.

5. It’s the least “Rolex” named watch

It is well known that all the manual wind Daytonas used a movement from Valjoux, but what is not so well known is that Rolex didn’t make the cases, dials or hands either. Cases came from Charles-René Spielmann (CRS), who also made many of the cases for Omega’s Speedmaster; whilst Singer, Beyeler or Stern made the dials. Hands came from Universo and other Swiss suppliers. But the Swiss Rolex replica watches were assembled by Rolex and used their patented Oyster crowns & tubes.

The fake Rolex watches is similar to the Rolex in that is has no crown and no hands. The watches, however, is distinctly different in that its discs are bathed in a fluid that refracts light and projects the indications directly onto the sapphire crystal.

The case measures 44 mm by 15 mm and has a bubble shaped sapphire crystal that makes it possible for the display to go all the way to the edge of the curve, giving the watch a unique look, even in comparison to the Rolex replica watches sale, which is already quite distinct.

Inside is a mechanism that consists of 57 jewels and 28 gears, enclosed in an upper compartment filled with a naphtha-type liquid which enhances the refraction of light, and causes the brain to see a two-dimensional display, rather than three.

@http://www.rolexsreplicas.org

A thermal valve automatically adjusts for any expansion or contraction of the fluid. As with the  watches, setting the time, date and winding the Replica Rolex Daytona watch is done by turning the caseback.

According to the manufacturer, “Discs displaying hours, minutes, seconds and days revolve under the domed sapphire crystal, while the date is read from the perimeter of the dial at 6 o’clock. The indications discs continually revolve, as does the whole dial itself. The face of the Rolex replica watches for men is constantly changing in the same way that a human face is transformed by each passing emotion.”

The dial and indications are curved and treated with DLC, and all components with the exception of the gears are titanium. Total weight of the Replica Rolex Air King watches is 80 grams. Indications are engraved in the discs and are filled with Super-LumiNova (white, grey and orange). As you can see by the image, the illumination system is quite effective.

While the patented module consists of 28 gears and 57 jewels, there is also a movement that has an additional 25 jewels. In total, there are 407 components. Like a traditional Swiss replica Rolex automatic watches, this timepiece beats a 4Hz and has a self-winding winding rotor.

Baselworld 2015: UK Replica Rolex Yachtmaster 40 and 37

Whenever Baselworld beckons, one of the brands that get arguably the most attention is none other than Rolex. The fabled cheap Rolex replica watchmaker is perhaps one of the most well-known, and also one of the most popular watchmakers in the world of horology. 

new Replica Rolex Yachtmaster 40

As usual, there will be a rife of speculations before the launch. Many fans predicted the return of the “Coke” GMT, the Rolex GMT-Master II featuring a black and red bezel. Others had also hoped for a Daytona that features a ceramic bezel. But it seems as though Rolex had thoroughly surprised many people with one of their latest offerings instead: the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yachtmaster.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yachtmaster 40 and 37 (the number is to signify the diameter of the Swiss replica Rolex watches, as it comes in both 40mm and 37mm cases) is a rather refreshing take on the current Rolex lineup. This is the first Rolex to officially feature the Oysterflex bracelet, or in simpler terms a rubber strap. The Oysterflex bracelet is an alternative to the usual metal bracelet, but of course it offers a much sportier look and a more robust feel. The Oysterflex bracelet works by attaching itself to the watch case and the Oysterlock safety clasp by a flexible titanium and nickel alloy metal blade. The blade is overmoulded with high-performance black elastomer which is both durable and comfortable. For enhanced comfort, the inside of the Oysterflex bracelet is equipped with a patented longitudinal cushion system that stabilizes the watch on the wrist.

The new Yachtmaster also features an 18k Everose gold case, as well as a rotatable bezel that is made from the black ceramic. The numerals on the bezel are raised, and they are highly polished as well. The contrast between the Everose gold case, the black ceramic bezel, as well as the black Oysterflex bracelet works rather well indeed.

The dial, on the other other hand, is subtly different as well. The Yachtmaster features a maxi dial, and its hour markers that are filled with Chromalight and pink gold luminescent inserts. The “Rolex” crown and brand name is in gilt, and this makes the Yachtmaster a little more special as well.

The Rolex Yachtmaster 40 is powered by Caliber 3135, while the slightly smaller Yachtmaster 37 is powered by Rolex’s Caliber 2236. They are basically the same movements, with the exception of their size (and power reserve, surprisingly). Both are, as usual, COSC certified automatic movements which features a date display. The bigger Caliber 3135 features a power reserve of around 48 hours, while the smaller Caliber 2236 surprisingly has got a power reserve of around 55 hours. These two movements are the workhorses in the Rolex lineup, and they are more than capable of getting the job done precisely and reliably.

The Rolex Yachtmaster is capable of going down into 100 meters of water in depth, but is it able to capture your heart that deeply? Based on observations, there are two sides to the camp. Of course, there are people who viewed the new Yachtmaster as something that is rather sporty and refreshing. On the other hand, there are naysayers who think that the use of rubber straps lowers the value of the Replica Rolex Yachtmaster watches UK, and that is looks a little deviant and ridiculous. Having said, we believe that we should only pass judgement only when we managed to see the watch itself. But sure, this is definitely one of the more surprising and controversial piece that Rolex has got to offer.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yachtmaster 40 retails at around CHF23,800, while the smaller Yachtmaster 37 retails at CHF21,000.

Top Rolex Fake Watches UK,Luxury Rolex Replica Watches Shop

Coming together to teach children about respect of the ocean and safety. The multiple World Champion stand-up paddle surfer Kai Lenny is organising a special children’s day in Hawaii, with support from top fake Rolex & DFS. The goal? A 10,000 USD donation for Nā Kama Kai (Children of the Sea), a foundation operating in the archipelago, represented by World Champion surfer Duane DeSoto, who is also attending this event.

Today is a very special day for all children who love surfing and practise the sport in Hawaii, and for those who admire the islands’ major champions.

Kai Lenny, the ultra-gifted American surfer, windsurfer, kite surfer, and six-time World Stand-Up Paddle Champion on the planet’s largest waves, has organised a charity day based around surfing for and with children, with his +Positively Kai Foundation, and with support from Swiss replica watch brand Rolex and his partner DFS.

@www.rolexsreplicas.org

The day held three very special moments

Firstly, as with any good day on Hawaii, it started with a spot of surfing. Kai Lenny took all the children to Waikiki Beach for some surfing lessons and a short demonstration that was filled with laughter and good humour.

It was a wonderful opportunity to share skills, and for Rolex Replica Submariner UK to renew its support for its friend Kai. His work as part of his +Positively Kai foundation, created in 2015, aims to support a selection of foundations each year which have been set up to increase respect for the ocean and environment amongst young people and raise their awareness of safety issues.

Today, the work of the Nā Kama Kai (Children of the Sea) Foundation has been chosen, which is represented by the Surf Champion Duane DeSoto, who joined Kai for this event.

A donation of 10,000 USD organised by Replica Rolex Yachtmaster watches and DFS will go directly to future actions aimed at children in the archipelago.

Next, as you would expect from an engaging, anti-conformist personality such as Kai’s, he wanted photographers to immortalise a quirky moment with his board. This is the cool disruptive side of Kai, and this is why Rolex has chosen him as he reflects its slogan #DontCrackUnderPressure: do things seriously… but without taking anything too seriously.

To end this fantastic day, everyone met up at the T Galleria Waikiki for a Hawaiian cocktail-themed evening. More than a hundred guests came to meet Kai Lenny and Duane DeSoto, who were both happy to share their passion and values. Of course, for the perfect Rolex replica watches end to a surf-themed day, you really need a surf simulator installed in the atrium so that you can continue to have fun with the kids. All in all, a fabulous day. A perfect example of Aloha Spirit.
