A lot of people who own homage watches own multiple Rolex's and other name brands. From my reading on watchuseek it seems some of these guys have a large amount of watches or are constantly rotating inventory at a loss.
All I can say is that I only buy vintage watches now. With luck and paitence, you can find some good stuff. My current favorite is a late 1960's JLC. The watch is a 14k gold Master Mariner automatic. in excellent condition with the 881 movement. I purchased it for a steal for $1,000. Service at a vintage watch repair guy that I use cost $300, a genuine croc band on ebay cost me $50, and a 18k gold buckle for that band cost me $130.
So, for $1,480 I have a real gold watch with patina that a replica will never have. This watch has been running well for 50 years and will continue to do so for the next 50. I did not spend $10k, $20k, $30k, $100k, or a million dollars on it. However, I have something that is quality, original, and authentic.
I posted it on watchuseek and I was immediately offered what I paid for it. So, I did not waste any money and I can get my money back at any time if I get bored of it.
This watch has already depreciated and will only appreciate from here. Why bother with fake crap when a little research and dilligence will work just fine and actually save you money?
