    While I will never own a $5k Rolex, I know a bit about watches. A $300 fake is not "functionally" identical to a Rolex, maybe to the untrained eye, but a Rolex is about build quality and details. This argument misses the point however, fake watches are illegal copywrit infringement. Your friend would do better buying a high quality $300 Seiko that will last a lifetime and isn't trying to be something it's not.

    No, he would not be. He would not get all the compliments and opportunity to show off his wealth and status if he wore a Seiko.
    He wears a Rolex for all the same superficial reasons you do, except he didn't get ripped off like you.
