Rolex, i assume, must be the most faked brand in the world. Apparently, if you send Rolex a watch that has been after market customised, ie a diamond bezel or similar fitted, they refuse to service/work on it and return it. Send them an out and out fake and they destroy it.
On the couple of occasions i've had to deal with them, i've found their service / repair very reasonable compared with Omega for instance. Piaget are another, think of a number, add some noughts, double it, thats Piagets price for a service

Not fakes, just Swiss style Homage replicas, or so many sellers on Ebay would have you believe!

i've seen so many watches and i'm always impressed by the massiveness of the real thing. No fake has ever come close to that.
