  • Bring your photos to show them as Chinese pronunciations for brands can be quite different and there aren’t real samples in the counter to avoid the cops. Usually the fake watches are hidden in secret offices they would show you around. Usually it’s safe and no hard sales.
  • Bring cash unless you can use wechat pay or alipay.
  • Most shops are traders as the watch factories are usually located in Shenzhen.
  • Shipping a large quantity of copy watches can be a great risk. You might risk getting the watches confiscated, getting a fine or even charged for legal responsibilities.

Questions to ask yourself before buying replica watches.

Some countries have loose policies while some Custom are very stringent with the importing of replica watches, the chances are quite high that your watches would be seized by the Custom.
  2. Are you able to spot a fake watch from the genuine ones? Some of the replica watches are made of such good quality that it’s difficult to tell them apart from the genuine ones. Even in the markets some suppliers would like to play the tricks of different quality, Chinese movement, Japanese movement or Swiss movement, are you able to tell the difference? Check the RWG forum guide about watches and avoid being scammed.

    • Hi thanks for your message. Sorry we don’t have the number of copy manufacturers. Even though there are a lot in the markets, maybe not match your needs and people mind posting their numbers in public especially those involved in replica goods. It’s suggested to source from the markets on your own. Good luck.

  12. Hi.I am from iran.I am a major buyer.I want to come.
    Maybe you want to use a series of watches for my mail?

  13. There are good fakes and obvious poor quality fakes.
    Before you buy anything spend a full day just looking around all the stores, leave your wallet at home and just look.
    The best prices you get are when you walk out of their store.
    Low quality fakes are about $20 USD.
    The better fakes (which are pretty good these days) are about $100 USD.
    The better fakes are hard to pick, you really need to be familiar with holding and looking at the real thing to pick up any errors in a fake.
    The small finishes in things like screws can be the only thing that gives them away.
    Looking with an eye glass you can see how the screws have been machine finished and are not polished as you would expect in an authentic item.
    I say who cares? $10,000 +USD vs $100.

    • Wowww looks like you bought lots of copied goods and enjoyed the process of choose the right ones. It’s not that hard to tell quality difference of copied bags, shoes, clothes, etc, but it’s a bit challenging while it comes to copies watches.

    • Hi thanks for contact. Price varies based on quality. For average quality copied watches, it costs around 100-300rmb.
