Hello everyone, I have a question. 8 years ago I bought a Relic brand watch at JC Penny for around 80 dollars. I wore it every day and I liked it a lot. A few weeks ago I broke it on accident when replacing the battery it was all my fault. So I looked online and I see the exact same Relic watch for 20 dollars. I thought that sounded like a great price for a watch that I already knew that I liked and that would last many years. When it arrived though, it was light weight, and cheesy feeling. 2 weeks later the turn dial is falling off regularly and the pins on the band are working themselves loose. I am curious if the quality has gone way down, or if there are actually fakes made of cheap watches, any ideas?

No brand is immune from being counterfeited! I have seen a site or two that will actually BRAG that their watches are replicas, and I was quite surprised how far down the "food chain" the list went. In fact with enough research you can find fakes that will be more expensive than the genuine article!

Think of the cheapest, crappiest, watch you've ever seen. Yes, there are fakes of that watch floating around too.

Yes, I have seen fake Invicta watches.

Shouldn't be surprising. They are popular with the general public.

If a watch is considered cheap due to inferior quality, it would seem that owning a replica of that watch is not the main issue unless it is worst quality such as this example. I known a few who own some nice replicas of the originals but they are not consider cheap either. Oh well, hopefully you didn't have too much attachment to that watch but for 8 years, that is quite a long time for a Relic which is never the cost but the joy in wearing it to give us the time.

Cheers :wink:
