There is a reason that we dislike the counterfeiters. It can be the copying of idea or may be the use of old and used components. If we consider the case of counterfeit watches, then we can also get to know about the real reason that why don’t some people like the counterfeits.
Despite the varied opinion of people about these watches, there has been no slower down of the sales in replica market. In fact there has been considerable rise in their demand and sales.
We have often related the concept of counterfeits to the idea of ‘lost cost (affordable) and quality designs’, but there is another aspect to it too!
These replica watches are not only a product to be used, but they reflect some antique pieces of work, re-polishes, styled and rearranged to be kept as a token of history. People are fond of keeping and preserving the things of past. They spend years in collecting the rarest watches and keep them as collectibles in their showcases.
These people keep a track of their dates of origin, make, manufacture and specialties. Well, the poor side is that, some retailers just re-touch the real facts in order to sell their product. This would be a deception with the faith and intention of the customer.
A customer needs to spend quality time in searching and looking for the quality replica watch of their choice.
When the replica watches were introduced, no one would have thought that what transformations they are going to bring in the ‘watch-world’! It was a mere necessity to introduce replicas for those who could not afford original brands. Later on, these replicas started offering varieties and people adopted them as their conscious choice rather than a need.
Today, there are so many designs available in the replica market that a new buyer may overlook the functions of fresh pieces. Not only designs, now the replica manufacturers have started giving special attention to the built, functionality and working of the watches. Unlike previous days when the replicas were considered a poor material product, now replicas are a ‘complete market’ in themselves.
The USP of today’s replica watches is: preferred designs at an affordable price range.
The customers enjoy the same style as that of any other well known brand. The replica watches aims at middle class section of people who would love to spend on a brand but within a limited budget. Thus, a replica has become the first choice of the customers who wear them.
The replicas are the change in the market of watches where the customer is becoming brand conscious. Due to high prices when they cannot afford the branded designer watches the replicas come as a preferred option for such people.
Well, many people prefer to buy replica watches despite the risk associated with them. There are many reasons for such decisions of people. First of all, people know about the brands, brand value, importance, brand image etc. They love to get associated with a big brand such as Rolex watches. In reality, the cost of original branded watches is quite higher than the budget of many people. So in order to get their desire of wearing a branded watch they prefer a branded replica watch of their favorite brand. Not only this, they trust the branded replica watch for its quality, maintenance and benefits.
Apart from this branded watch whether replica or original has its own grace that can differentiate it straightaway from any other counterfeit product. For example the radiance in the dial of a branded replica speaks for its quality. This is the reason that despite being other ‘new’ watches available in the same price range people tend to prefer the branded ‘replica’ watches of a good company.
Second reason is that a branded watch is manufactured under careful conditions. While a local counterfeit is produced in bulk and doesn’t guarantee any maintenance general. A wise buyer can recognize in first instance if he is going to buy a genuine product or a local counterfeit watch. In order to receive the full value of money, people prefer to buy replica brands.
Today it is very intricate to make out the difference between original and replica watches. While taking into account genuine replica this can be real advantage for companies. Fundamentally replica watches were manufactured to give the customer some allowance in cost of originals with some little compromise in quality. But the fake watches in the market have very poor quality and it is very easy to categorize them just by a glimpse.
Replica watches have a huge demand in the market. As branded labels are not going to provide relaxation in their price for customer satisfaction, therefore, some modifications and negotiations are made in these watches to reduce the prices.

Some time back it was not really very difficult to differentiate between the fake and real watches. The reason considered for it was the unavailability of resources and money with the counterfeit producers. The quality of the watches produced as counterfeit was clearly demarcated.
The difference was not only in looks but also in the feel. If one could touch those watches then it did not take them long to realize it. However, in today’s time, the money is not a problem with these manufacturers who make counterfeit replicas.
With the advent of internet, now it is easier for them to find the information about the manufacturing process. Not only this rather they have found sellers all across the world for their products. The increase in net savvy people has led to a raised profit and thus, the business of producing counterfeit watches has no looking back.
These replicas may not be branded but customers who are not willing to spend beyond a limited pocket size, may find fancy designs and styles. The attractive appearance or the right kind of advertising of these replica watches makes them successful choice of their buyers.
However, the profit margins are higher for the counterfeit watch producers as they spend a vwery little money and get equivalent or more profits as compared to a branded replica manufacturer.
