      That's the damn problem!!

      For me, it's about performance, so that's why I didn't get the "art" comparison.
      I would compare replica watches to kit cars. Granted, some can be nice, but most are just a watered down version of the copy.

      I do have an issues with posers though. Why not just buy a used version, or a different brand that you can afford. Obviously this is not a question I can answer for others...

      What's with this practice (in the posts above) of calling counterfeit merchandise 'replicas' or 'reps'?

      If I go out and get myself some $100 dollar bills that were made overseas, rather than by the US Treasury, and I call them 'replica' bills, does that mean I won't have to go to jail for possession of counterfeit money?

      Michael,

      You bumped a 1.5 y/o thread for that?

      I came across this thread from several years ago where you were discussing repair of a replica Rolex. I find myself in a situation with a very nice replica Sea Dweller that I picked up in Shanghai a few months ago and would like to get the works repaired or replaced. You mentioned you knew of some places that perform these services? I have looked and am unable to discover any options. If you get this and are so inclined please send me the contact information for someone to service this watch. I would be greatly appreciative.
      Sincerely
      Greg

      Open it up and send me a photo of the movement and I can help you figure out what it is. Odds are it'll be cheaper to replace the movement than service it. If it's a super cheap rep it'll probably have a DG2813, which cost $20. If you're lucky it has a Seiko NH35 which is about $40. Once you know what the movement is, order it on eBay and call local jewelers/watch shops and see who is willing to replace it. Some may not want to work on reps but I think most don't care.
