At first glance, it can be very difficult to tell a fake watch from a genuine luxury watch. But to the trained eye, the differences are immeasurable. With all the online watch stores cropping up, it is no surprise that well-meaning shoppers get fooled every day. But shouldn’t the sale of fake “name brand” luxury items be illegal?
Somehow, a large number of replica watch makers get away with passing off their cheap imposters for the real thing. While most of their customers know they’re buying a fake, some people honestly think they’re buying a Rolex for $50!
When it comes to Philip Stein watches, imposter watches present a much larger issue. That is because these aren’t just your average luxury watch. They contain a Teslar chip, embedded into the case, which works with the watch’s batter to create a harmonious energy field around the wearer.
Since they were first introduced in 2002, Philip Stein watches have been featured on Oprah, praised by Madonna, and seen on the wrist of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, to name a few. While the watches themselves are quite impressive looking, their biggest selling point is their ability to reduce stress, promote deeper sleep, and help wearers remain focused and relaxed. In other words, it is the frequency technology that has made them so popular.
Replica watch companies may know how to make their watches look similar to the real thing, but they have no clue about Teslar chips or frequency technology. Looking for some telltale signs that your watch is fake? Well, their fake “chips” don’t say “Teslar”, they include the words “water resistant” on the dial, and their straps are not interchangeable.
A better way to keep from buying a phony Philip Stein watch is to make sure you only purchase one from an authorized Philip Stein retailer. If you find yourself dealing with a company that sells fake designer watches, ask for their name, address, and business license. It is time someone started reporting these scammers to the proper authorities.
