I apologize for starting this topic on fakes/replicas, but I could use a lil help here. Everyone who knows me a lil, by now knows that I am into watches. My friends, relatives, people at work, etc. I am very happy to talk to them about watches, but sooner or later, someone always asks me regarding fakes. If its as simple as 'do you buy fakes?, my answer should be easy, but when someone who you know can't really afford a high end brand and yet wants to get a fake/replica and asks you to help him, what do you do? I don't want to come across as being rude or snobbish (especially to people senior to me at work).
Most people at my work place (including myself) don't earn nearly enough to own expensive watches. I myself try my best to keep a low profile on days I'm wearing my Sub to work. I'm asked questions like, 'can I get a good replica for $200?', 'how is my (fake)watch?', 'my dad/grand dad gifted me this watch, what is it worth?'
How would you respond?
