Ok, wierd thread for L4P i know.

Ive had my heart set on a Rolex Daytona WHITE for AGES but theres no way i can afford to lob down £8k on a watch!


However i can buy a replica of it for just £400.

Im wondering if anyone has any experiences of replicas and where to best buy them ? Im not going to go round acting that its real, i just like the style of it!

I don't think you're going to get much of a positive reception on this. Replicas are knock-offs, which is technically trademark infringement...which is pretty equivalent to intellectual property theft.

It lessens the actual brand by having fakes floating around.
Would you carry a fake Louis Vuitton wallet?

Surely it only lessens the brand if you sell it as genuine when it isnt ?

If i had a product out there and someone went to a lot of trouble to make a replica of it i would see it as an achievement and as a compliment!

If it look EXACTLY like a Rolex and is sold as a Rolex replica, it's no accomplishment. It's theft of a design Rolex worked hard to create. That's all.

I'm going to go buy a Ferio put a Ferrari kit on it and sell it for $200k it almost looks the same and it's a compliment right!

Please don't tell me your serious? Its like buying gas station jewelry! Don't be a poser if you can't afford it don't buy it. Get a nice diesel watch with your money.

Thats the point though, they dont sell it for $200k they sell it for $2k.

I dont want it to pose i want it because i LOVE the design.

If you love the design, then find an Invicta with the same design. I'm sure they have one that looks like the Daytona. PM Salduchi to find out where to buy Invictas.

whether you seek it or not, people will ridicule a replica..... buy a less expensive reputable brand and save, save, save till you can afford the real thing.....

Listen. fakes are for fake people.


If you are REALLY into it.. read below
Now, that style of rolex has been ripped off plenty over the years. Buy yourself maybe a brandless homage or a style copy like invicta always does if you really want the look. Passing off a fake as real is lame as hell, but if you want the look as bad as you seem here. Pick up something that just looks similar.

Invicta Men's Swiss Speedway Watch 7115 - NextDayWatches.com

ugh i just suggested an invicta lol

So if you dont wear a watch at all does that mean you are nothing ?

Wow. Seriously, buy a LUM-TEC or something in your budget. If you can't afford it then you can't. There is nothing embarrassing about that. Yet wearing a fake... well you see the word fake right.

Best thing to do is go look at other watches in your budget that has almost the same style and get that. As everyone said " save save save". There are tons of expensive watches out there i like but i dont want to get a replica what are you going to say if someone ask you if it is real or fake. Your going to look like a fool.

Buy a citizen and enjoy the watch. Learn more about watches...and I'm sure the thought of wearing a fake will disgust you like it does most of us.

Don't fake that you can afford a 15k rolex until you can.
