Alpha posted a video with The Urban Gentry’s Tristano (TGV) about where to buy used luxury timepieces (watches). Imagine if it was fake!? You’d freak out! In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro presents TGV’s opinion why you must never, ever buy replicas or fakes.

Five Reasons Why to Not Buy a Replica Timepiece

  1. For a bit more you can buy a iconic, classic that is real and respected. Alpha adds a comment about his favorite Seiko Black SKX007KD.
  2. Reliability and quality – a fake doesn’t have the same craftsmanship. Alpha discusses how he just wants to look good.
  3. Don’t support crime! Don’t put money into the pockets of criminal organizations.
  4. The refinement and tradition of watch keeping – a quality timepiece is as important as shoes or suit. It’s an essential accessory. You can hand-down for generations too.
  5. Self respect – you work hard for everything you have and you deserve better than a fake! Don’t disrespect yourself and are lowering your standards. Alpha says some men don’t have the money but aspire to look like they have that watch. He tells a story about his $150 replica Rolex and how he was so paranoid about having his fake detected. He stopped wearing it.
