- What can be the reasons for it?
First reason we can consider to be the ignorance of the buyers. They get dragged by the appearance and promotion of the counterfeit watches. This way they can’t differentiate between the benefit they can drive from a new watch or any other branded replica.
Great bargains at times land into forged purchases. In longer term it may be a ‘bad deal’.
In most of the situations it is not only the buyer but the manufacturer and the sellers who misguide a customer for such purchases. They make their replicas look like other expensive or branded watches. For example, they have the label ‘Swiss made’ on their dial. A normal customer, who is going to make his first attempt with replica watch, may not be able to understand the difference.
Thus a very careful and thoughtful research is needed in order to make a beneficial replica watch purchase. One should not get carried away by the false promotions but rather should do their own research about the product.
This will not only lead him/her to a satisfied buying but will also keep the product in good health for a longer run!
We can go to the market and buy any replica of our choice, but trouble comes when we are spending our hard earned money for a branded replica! The problem is that many local manufacturers use the tag ‘Swiss made’ on their products and thus misguide their customers. This is not a fair deal practice.
In order to avoid such forgery the customer has to be aware of the authentication testing of the watch. This can be done by a careful research about the product.
After selecting the product of their choice, the customer should collect all the catalogues and pamphlets from the retailers. These catalogues contain all the description about the product and stand for the credibility of the retailer’s product (even if they are not branded). Now these products should be compared with the products on the website of the company.
Generally a branded company keeps all the information about their products on their websites. A customer can do the research and development for the product at home and then can decide over the final decision of purchase. The touch and feel of the product can help in realizing the authentication of the product.
The best of all solutions can be to consult the old buyer of the products. Ask a friend or any other known that has already been using the replicas from a particular retailer. This will be able to help in making the right decision.
What could attract you to buy a branded replica! When we possibly try to think the most optimum answers to this question, our conclusion revolves around:
• Brand identity of replicas
• Lower rate as compared to a new branded watch
Although these are seemingly good reasons that affect the value of your replicas but in reality one should know the factors that should play a major role in its purchase:
1. A crystal clear and defined appearance of your replica:
We pay for the complete package not just the quality or not just the appearance. So, when you buy a replica watch from a brand of the manufacturer makes sure that it looks world class. Apart from great designs, a careful attention should be paid onto the refinement and presentation of the product. For example there should be no stretch marks on the dial or strap/chain.
2. A product catalogue that keeps transparency:
If there is a product catalogue to a replica watch, it will elaborate all the features. Thus every detail can be well understood and read in detail. In fact these details are helpful in considering the usage and warranty period of the replica watch.
3. Contact information of retailer:
Make sure that you don’t miss to keep the contact information of the retailer. This will help in getting in touch with the seller if any trouble is faced with the product in future.
Thus keeping a checklist of all the above information before buying the final product can be really beneficial for the buyer.
If you are reading this post of ours, it indicates that you are seriously looking for some quality purchase in your replicas! This is indicated from your increased knowledge about ‘smart tips to buy a replica’. This is our fifth article in the series and we are trying to impart more and more smart techniques to those who DONOT want to compromise with their favorite replica brand.
So here are some more tips:
- Glow Speaks The Brand Itself:
If you would have noticed that most of the modern watches carry extra shine and glow dial, you must be aware of the substance ‘LumiNova’. It also allows the watch to read time even in darkness. Now, if you will buy a replica watch of not a good quality brand, then you may notice its dial doesn’t carry adequate shine and glow. While if you purchase a branded replica, you will notice the grace and elegance that is reflected by its dial. This difference is because of the presence of LumiNova in branded watches like Rolex. Thus, one can find the difference in a branded and duplicate replica.
Now, let’s DO NOT talk of the difference, but the BONUS that you can get from buying a branded replica. The buyers of a branded watch will be able to spot a crown at the ‘6’o clock’ time on their branded replica. At times this crown is invisible and other times it can be seen easily. This is crown in itself is a symbol of quality and brand!
Thus, if you know what you are buying, it will certainly be a pleasure in using the product. That is why we went over with these 5 series articles on smart tips to make the purchasing decision for replica owners.
In this era of competition, there are many local vendors that tend to eat the share of branded products by promising unreal expectations to their customers. Considering this unfair, we have introduced this series of articles.
When we are buying replicas, we need to be extra cautious about the specifications. A proper inspection of the aspects can make the buying a ‘wise’ decision. When you are spending money for a branded product, then you should get the ‘branded product’ only, not a fake replica of a brand!
That is why we suggest various measures for differentiating the branded products from their fake imitations
1. Dial the dial:
The printing at the back of the dial should be sharp and defined. A brand takes care of the descriptions for its customers in order to keep the transparency. Also, the dirt and dust should be completely away from the dial of your replica. These small details help you distinguish a branded replica watch from its counterfeit product.
2. Bezel Pearl- glows in the dark:
When we are talking of the sports models of Rolex, its bezel pearl should be radiant and able to glow even in the dark. While in the case of counterfeits, you will find the bezel pearl visible distinctly as an ant hill. It doesn’t even glow in dark. Thus, a bezel pearl can help in identifying the replicas of brands like Rolex. In fact in case of the new replicas, these bezel pearls are just similar to the original branded watches.
Thus, these two new points must have added to your knowledge a few more smart tips. These smart tips can help the customer in making a choice between the branded replica and a cheap-local product.
