I disagree. Most can't tell the difference. But those who know the piece can certainly tell after examining it ... some pieces are so bad those who know the original can tell at a glance.

This does not surprise me. Most people know very little about what they are wearing. But those do do know -- very few in number -- well ... see above.
But Reev, after reading your friend's story ... I can tell you with absolute certainty that he does NOT know watches. At one point he made a critical error that tells me he is far from knowing watches.
Of course, if one is wearing a watch to prove something to others ... one needs a shrink more than a good watch.Edited by RSS - 9/26/11 at 9:27am
