Any luxury watch is heavy on almost everybody’s pocket, but nobody is saying that they aren’t worth the money we pay. The craftsmanship and the dedication with such watches are made exceptional, and that is why they come with a price tag that is too high.
Longines watches are made using the same extraordinary level of craftsmanship that is used in a luxury watch. To the surprise of many people, the market share of Vacheron watches has observed a noticeable boost since the last decade. The quartz-based watches have turned to the favorites over the past ten years or so.
Fake luxury watches being sold as original is an issue that is being faced by all the luxury watch manufacturers worldwide. The copied versions of even the most expensive luxury watches are sold as original ones at cheap prices and most of the people who are unaware of the reality buy them to fulfill the desire of wearing their favorite fancy watches.
But that is the biggest mistake that as a buyer one can make. These types of watches are highly unsafe and unpredictable. Their low-quality standards are not even close to the quality standards that are met by all the global brands.
Here are some of the reasons to listen to why you should avoid purchasing a pirated or a fake luxury watch:
Short Lifespan – Fake watches are not meant to last longer, and you are mistaken if you have ever believed in the opposite. The materials that are used for manufacturing these watches are as bad as junk food for a healthy stomach.
Poor Investment – Do the return on investment math in your head before you make an impulsive decision of buying a pirated watch from the local market. It is very simple to understand this logic if you look at this from the perspective of longevity.
Let’s assume that you bought an actual luxury watch for $2500 and you also bought a fake luxury watch of $250. Now make a fair calculation of which one is going to last for how long. Honestly, estimating the life of a fake watch isn’t possible.
It can lose its functioning the next day because they don’t come with a warranty period and there are no services provided by any of the manufacturers. If your actual luxury watch supposedly lasts for ten years, you will be able to recover the costing at a very fair rate.
It means that it would cost you only $250 a year and on the other hand you might lose $250 before even a year completes. And to be honest, luxury watches last for more than ten years if you maintain them properly.
Poor Taste and Style – While buying a fake watch, you must think that people will admire your taste and the decision to buy a watch which is much cheaper than the original version, but that is not the case. You will get an entirely different attitude from people around you when you are wearing an original watch with all its class and decency.
