    Clever response if someone asks or implies that your watch is a fake?

    I've had someone ask me, and I just replied a boring "no, I don't wear fake watches," but I'd like to have something more clever lined up to say. Any ideas?

    Also, what do you say if someone tacky asks you the cost? It's OK for my close friends to ask, and I will answer them honestly, but there are certain people that I don't think should ask, and I don't want to tell. They can google it if they really want to know.

    I think your original answer is fine. You don't need to be clever. People with fake watches need to be clever.

    The man who buys a particular watch to feel smarter or better than other people and the man who avoids a particular watch to feel smarter or better than other people are brothers.

    I'd give them the eye of the basilisk and simply walk away

    if anyone ever asks if my watch is fake (not that anyone has ever made any mention of a watch I'm wearing), I'd be inclined to say "yup" and it cost me HK$50 down some market in Hong Kong.

    If you're in Texas or SoCal, you have about a 90% chance of hitting this right.

    If I felt ANY reply was warranted it would be along the lines of "Hmmm, think what you like".
    I would leave out "dumbass".

    I think you've got it right there.
    A watch is the most exquisite of machines, and it's always with you.
