Fleabay Alert

There are usually several fake Vacherons on fleabay at any one time and we don't often comment except for humor value.  This fake Jubilé 1755, though, is so complete in it's deception that I thought it best to share the info.

Looks good so far....

Too many of these fakes get bids and are actually purchased on fleabay.  They used to have a link to report counterfeits but that has been removed.  Even when reported, I never saw them remove a listing for a fake watch. This example is being sold out of Russia.  On the vintage front there is a prolific manufacturer of "royalty" pieces in Bulgaria, complete with soldered-on medallions and other bric-a-brac masquerading as provenance. As a topic for general discussion, does the manufacturer have some responsibility (or at least interest) to police their trademark?
This is a way

This is a way to acquire a genuine Jubilee for the price of a cheap fake by first buying a genuine Jubilee and a cheap fake and then selling the cheap fake packaged with the authentic packaging thereby recouping the cost of the genuine.

That would be clever, extremely devious, but clever (nt)
