How many of us have girlfriends or wives with fake Birkin handbags ? There so well made today that it's incredible. Do we look askance at their owners ? At my local taylor recently two young gentlemen asked for reproductions of TF blazers in several springtime hues, nobody present even bat at eyelid at anything else than their choice of colors.
Of course, the movements of a fake PP won't be as well made. But the case is sometimes close to perfection, give the Sinican genius some time and they will slap in there more reliable movements.
It' s not in my opinion a matter of theft, ridicule, lack of good taste, or distate. There is a market out there being provided for by obvious talent. The manufactures and the snobs like most of here should be happy : an ignoramus to whom the inside of a watch is only a beautiful sight is condemned to buying from official dealers in the main cities of the world only. Even major jewellery shops of the developing world are in some instances distributors for well made fakes, sold with papers of course. So there is no reason to get so upset, the existence of fakes is throwing us in the arms of major brands who are only to happy to sell and fix for a very modest price, right ?
