Re: Very happy with fake Kirium
In Response To: Very happy with fake Kirium ()

I'm torn if this is good or bad for tag. I suppose it's flattering that someone makes copies of your watch but it is also hurtful by diluting the pool. I've bought my share of fake Rolex watches when I was younger thinking the same thing but there is a special feeling you get when you plop down the money and buy your first REAL watch. IMO replica watches are like a man in a money suit or a man with a rug, I can spot them from a mile away (but not 2 miles).
I'm glad your happy but if you are taking a liking toward tag, you will eventually want to try the real thing. A nice used entry level tag can be had for $130.
: I recently purchased a Tag Heuer Kirium
: replica. The price was $130.00 and it is
: amazing looking. I was not ripped off
: because I knew what I was buying. I have
: recieved so many compliments on it and
: people are extremely impressed when I tell
: them the price I paid. The people that I
: find that are not happy are people that paid
: the going price for this watch. One guy I
: had to laugh about because he said he felt
: ripped off for paying over $1000.00.
: Basically what I am saying if you know what
: you are getting and are happy with it then
: do it.
