    How do you know this Patek isn't real if you aren't an expert (your words, not mine)?

    I'm not a Cartier expert. I know Patek very well.

    There has simply never been a Patek that looks like that. It's not even a good fake. It's not as though it's very close to a real model but has sharp edges that should be rounded, or something. It simply does not resemble a real model in any way.

    Interesting. I wonder why they would make a replica of something that doesn't exist? Odd.
    I know very little about watches, which is why I only shop at reputable dealers.

    Haha, busted. I bet his other watches are all fake too. The funny part is this guy probably spent so much money on fake watches when he could have bought one really nice genuine watch and actually felt good while he was wearing it. Funny thing about replica watches is that no matter how much it may look just like the real thing, you will always know its a fake and it will never feel as good as wearing something genuine, even if its a much cheaper watch. A friend of mine gave me a fake Rolex a few years ago and I wore it out a few times and no matter how much it looked like a real Rolex I knew it was fake so I stopped wearing it and got a nice vintage Omega instead. At least if your going to wear a replica, get a model that doesnt cost 1/3 of your yearly salary.
