Tips For Spotting Fake Luxury Watch Brands
Posted by Daubin Barshtak on June 22, 2011.
Currently in today’s luxury watch market, fake brands are very common. Here are a few tips to avoid purchasing one of these imposter watches.
- No real luxury watch company will sell their watches in massive inventory clearances or end of model year closeouts.
- A luxury brand will be discussed in many places on the Internet. Check the manufacturer’s website, forums, and multiple watch retail sites to make sure the brand of watch you are purchasing is genuine. If you can't find collectors and owners discussing the merits of the brand, it is unlikely to be a true luxury brand.
- A real luxury brand will be sold through well-known dealers. If you are having trouble locating your watch from a dealer and seem to only find the brand on auction sites only, this may be considered a red flag.
- Also, it is very important to know that even fake watch brands may have a well developed website that makes the watch brand seem authentic. This is why it is so important to thoroughly research the product you are intending to purchase.
