Problems With Replica Watches
As most knockoffs are made after famous brands and luxury models, you can expect to see a lot of gold. The plating can easily wear off in time and make the watch look bad on your wrist. The thickness of the gold plating can be very important because it can be the difference between wearing your watch for a month or for a year. This is where the quality of the watch comes in. The problem is that there is no way to know how long it will last before you buy.
Stainless steel can also start to corrode after a while. A long warranty can be a sign of this not being a regular issue but most online stores only offer a 30 day warranty which is not that much. As it starts to deteriorate, you can even see the writing on the dial falling of; this a sign of a poor build and you should try to avoid that store for future purchase.
The movement can also be a cause for concern because it will eventually fall behind, go faster or stop altogether. A way to avoid this from happening is to regularly have it cleaned at a shop and pay attention with it. You can improve its lifespan if you just take care of it and maybe treat it like it has the same price tag as the original.
It is important to understand that although the authentic watch is water resistant this doesn’t mean that the copy has the same qualities. If you buy it online, you should find information about this fact and there is usually a big disclaimer notifying customers if the models are not water resistant. This problem is not covered by the warranty in most cases because it is a mistake made on the customer’s side and not by the store.
