As some of the most well-known and desirable time pieces in the mainstream market Rolex, Omega and Tag Heuer watches have been for many years the target of fakers looking to make a quick profit on the back of these brands.
Where in the past it would have been easy even to an untrained eye to spot a copy, the fakers have become more sophisticated in the way they produce these pieces meaning that there are often only subtle clues that the watch isn’t a genuine product. Whilst there are still an abundance of very obvious cheap fakes on the market, counterfeit watches at the high end of the market will often copy the design down to the internal movement and packaging. Although some of these watches are marketed as replicas, there is a darker side to the trade with people paying the full price for a genuine timepiece only to find later down the line that it’s worth a fraction of this value.
