    "The world is so big, we can meet each other. Not easy. Agelocer Watches!"

    I have been in literally hundreds of advertising pitch meetings. The above is not very good.

    Agelocer also have the BigBang, which is totally different from Hublot Big Bang. Oh, I mean Great Bang. When you can't remember the name of your watch collection from one line to the next, this is also not very good.

Things like spelling errors will also deter me from buying, there’s no way I would wear a watch that says “autoumatic” on the dial.

    And the brand names, why do they sound very gibberish? Benyar, Burei, Didun Design, Agelocer.....smh.
    Sometimes it is blatant false branding (Burei, Binger, Carnival, etc. The "Swiss" is not on the dial in those). Sometimes the watch is in all ways a replica, and the only detail they change so they can sell it on AX or Amazon is the brand logo - i.e., those first 2 that HoustonReal posted are just Royal Oak reps from the ground up, but with Didun and Benyar logos or caseback branding instead of AP. BUT, sometimes it's just lazy Photoshop. Without researching it extensively, I'd lay good odds that both of those first images HR posted started life in Audmar's marketing department, and the fine people at Didun and Benyar simply shop'd out the original logos and shop'd on their own, leaving all other details untouched. Only a payment and a 5 week wait will tell if the actual watch bears the Swiss Made stamp on the dial.

    This seems to happen when non-English speakers try to come up with English sounding names. Case in point:

    There was at least one Burei (S-15001M) where early versions had "Swiss Made" on the dial.

    Since Benyar and Didun are well established brands, in that many WIS have purchased them, I doubt that they'd send replicas. Paulares used to be a crap shoot as to whether a replica or a homage might be sent, but that hasn't been an issue lately. Age Girls are all fakes, and Pamboons watches are suspect.
