Boy, you're ego must be microscopic that you feel you have to carry the papers in your briefcase to prove that your watches are real! Who cares what other people think?
: I am currently working at the US Embassy in
: Baghdad. I used to think countries like
: Thailand made a killing on cheap fake
: watches until I came here. This place is
: lousy with them. Every Iraqi business in
: Baghdad sells the cheapest fake Rolex,
: Brietling and Omega knockoffs. And sadly,
: every US soldier, sailor, & marine is
: now wearing one. The saddest part is, I own
: 2 real Omegas and 2 real Rolex's. When you
: wear them, everybody wants to know where you
: bought the perfect looking replica. I have
: begun to carry the papers in my briefcase to
: prove they are real. I used to get
: compliments on the nice Submariner or
: Seamaster Pro. Now, thanks to the
: countefeiters, I can only get a compliment
: on the best looking fake from time to time.
: It never occurs to anyone that SOMEONE
: ACTUALLY BOUGHT REAL WATCHES.
