Spelling

All replicas come from China. This is the truth and we should accept it as it is. We are not prepared to spend all our savings on the original one and we want a cheaper version, one we can afford without robbing the bank. For this to be possible, the Chinese replica market has extended very much during the past few years not leaving any room for competition. The downside is that everything that comes from China and is cheap has its limitations and this is also available for replica watches. Sometimes we see this consequence where it hurts us the most: on the dial of our dream watch under the form of a misspelled name or marking.

Even though this is a very possible and quite common case scenario, I also must admit that this will happen only with the worst replicas we could find out there. A decent quality replica will never have a misspelled word on it. To illustrate this awful mistake that could very well happen to you if you do not research the sellers and the quality of its products before placing your order, I have selected a few pictures of some inferior quality imitations that have misspellings on the dial.

The first image is of a fake Audemars Piguet watch that above the brand name has an incorrect text saying “Chmonographe Rattrapante”. In the next photo we have a beautiful blue Omega Seamaster  with a misspelled “PROFFESIOAL” marking on the dial and in the third picture we see a white Audemars Piguet with a wrongly written “Tourbillon Chronographe” text above the brand name. All these are very obvious defects that make any replica watch unusable. For any other design flaws you could still wear the watch thinking that not that many people know all the particularities and details of the original watch, but when it comes to a misspelling mistake it is clear that anyone who knows how to read will know for sure that your watch is a fake.

From experience, I can tell you that the watches with the smallest chance of misspellings are the Rolex replicas.  This very traditional brand has brought just a few innovations to its designs and has kept almost all its basic markings despite the passage of decades. Also, it is one of the most demanded brands on the replica market so replica manufacturers have had all the incentives for perfecting themselves in the art of crafting these fine timepieces.

When you are targeting a low priced replica everything is possible. Getting a good quality watch without obvious flaws is like playing the lottery. This goes for misspellings too. If you do not research the seller and its products thoroughly then you may end up receiving an awful clone that you will never be able to use.
