Post Authentic vs. Replica Watches
Authentic vs. Replica Watches
by: Melissa Smith

The quality of Swiss luxury watches is unparalleled. But its features, quality, and cutting-edge designs come with a big price tag. For an average person, buying an authentic watch is simply not affordable. This is where replica watches come in to the picture. Swiss manufacturers may be fighting against “fake” watches but there is no doubt that this industry will continue to thrive. Many people want to have the benefit of wearing beautiful timepiece accessories even without the same features or quality of the original.

Replica Watches

There are many kinds of replica watches on the market. Some of these can be called “counterfeit” because it uses propriety logo, brand, and design of a legitimate company. The looks and angles of these counterfeits can look so similar to the authentic ones that it may sometimes be difficult to tell the difference. However, discerning connoisseurs can always tell at a glance from the materials alone.

In addition, the features found on authentic Swiss watches cannot be replicated by replica watches. Chronographs, for instance, are difficult and expensive to produce. It would be unrealistic to expect counterfeit watches to be of good quality. Basically, they will serve as a fashion accessory or a time telling device for a few months, maybe two years if you’re lucky. But it won’t last for a long time.

That’s why for many people, buying counterfeit watches doesn’t make sense. Once it breaks down, repairing it isn’t practical. You would need to buy a brand new watch to get the benefit it brings.

Authentic Watches

Unlike replica watches, authentic watches are made of high-quality, durable, and robust materials. Each detail is intricately designed and meticulously crafted. It is not surprising that authentic watches are sought after by collectors even after decades. Stylish men and women know they are getting good value when they buy quality luxury items. It enhances the style, appeal, and confidence of any wearer.

A well designed authentic watch will command a second glance. The features integrated within it are fully functional. So if the manual says that it is water resistant for up to 100 meters, you can be sure that it is. Meanwhile, certain watches also provide dual time zone, day and date indicators, and other ingenious innovations.

And unlike replica watches, authentic Swiss watches can be considered as investment pieces. It will hold its value over the long-term. In fact, decades old watches command a very high price these days. In the future, the watch you hold right now may become a timeless classic.
