I must say I love your pictures: which camera did you chose ?
Neither Polish nor German relatives hand over such burdensome gifts...

I have a ton of Polish and German relatives and never got anything close to this FAKE from any of them On a serious note, that is one bad piece of a fake...

What makes it such a bad fake? Apart from the gay looking strap the watch bit doesn’t look to bad

and in the hopes that you will someday check out what Vacheron watches really look like... I would say to you that Vacheron never made a watch that looked like this, even remotely. Its a fake for that reason alone and not really a good one. It doesn.nt matter where you got it, but if you don't do your due diligence you will be fooled again. There are enough people on this site (as well as the Purists) with tons of knowledge about Vacheron who are in a position to help. Sometimes a private email is more appropriate. But you can understand that many people visit this site showing absolutely crap fake watches made in some basement worshop in the Peoples' Republic and expect everyone to fall over backwards with admiration and awe. And interestingly enough they all have similar stories about how they got their heirloom Vacheron. You may be one of these individuals...or not. Very, very few have had the real thing. So if you are disconcerted by the responses here, you can understand why. Best Wishes, JB

In the interests of moving past these inquiries as quickly as possible, I'd like to propose a series of abbreviations that can be used in response: FaWa = Fake Watch ReGi FaWa = Relative Gives Fake Watch FOS FaWa = Found On Street Fake Watch POS FaWa = Piece of Sh*t Fake Watch Fuzzy FaWa = Useless Pictures Likely Means Fake Watch LTS FaWa = Long Tedious Story Likely Means Fake Watch One Meellion Dollars = How much is my FaWa worth? (apologies to Dr. Evil) Any others you'd care to add?
