In Response To: Re: RHS ()

: They have been around for along time. I'm not sure how they
: manage to stay up and running, my only guess is that they
: are not located here in the US. The US government shuts
: down web sites that sell replica watches that are located
: in the US, and most of these type of sites are only
: operational for a few months before Uncle Sam shuts them
: down. RHS sells their replicas at a high price, and the
: watch is does not look like a real Seamaster Pro.

What go my attention was that their photos looked like the real thing. A place like that might use a legitimate photo of the genuine watch in their ads though.

Fakes probably keep time fairly well with a Japanese movement. That's about the only thing you can say about them. The engineering, craftsmanship, beauty, quality of materials, (and therefore the durability and toughness) is zilch compared to the real thing. At least that's been my experience with the few fakes I've seen. Even if there were some ok fakes, they are still fakes!!
