A Very Good Addition to Shady Joe's Guide to Fakes

Recently, while reading a special supplement to The New York Times that focused on Haute Horlogerie, I came upon the ad below.  I thought it was worth sharing with the community, not because any of the regulars here would every consider the puchase of a fake watch, but as a warning to any guests who might be tempted to go that route.  I also think we should add it to the Shady Joe Guide to which we direct visitors who post pictures of fakes and want to know if they are real.  I leave that to Alex to decide.

This HH counterfeit advertising strategy has me baffled though - someone who will only spend a few hundred bucks on a fake isn't going to be lured to spend thousands more on the basis of these words.  The inclination to purchase prestige fakes is only strengthened by the success of the original product.  The Blood Diamonds campaign worked because there wasn't much of a disparity in pricing between legitimate and illegitimate products; morality trumps when its convenient wink.
