Used Rolex Watches Philadelphia

7,000 fake Rolex watches crushed by steamroller

275x250.jpg Customs officials in the US have used a steamroller to destroy around 7, 000 fake Rolex watches - as a warning to other counterfeiters.

The faux Rolex - which would have been worth millions if real - were seized as part of a counterfeit goods investigation which saw Binh Cam Tran sentenced to six years in federal prison for creating the fakes.

It's thought he fabricated hundreds of thousands of counterfeit Rolex watches in a Philadelphia factory, a crime which also saw him ordered to repay $2, 273, 000 to the Rolex Co.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials looked on as the timepieces were yesterday crushed… and could't help looking at their wrists to check their watches hadn't fallen off.

"Criminals and organisations who steal Intellectual Property Rights will be held accountable. They steal jobs and finance other criminal endeavours, " said ICE special agent John Kelleghan.

"Counterfeit goods cost U.S. industries billions of dollars in losses each year. We intend to stamp out the need for seizures like this one in the future."

A spokesperson for Rolex added: "The destruction of the counterfeit contraband watches today follow years of investigation and prosecution of this kingpin of the counterfeiting industry.

"The existence of counterfeit products harms global trade in general and can produce goods that harm the health and safety of the consuming public."

I got one a few years back

Had the same arguement going at the time, whether or not to get one. but i wear it every single day and threw out all the old $12 watches. i got it at a place in carmel, which i understand is the only rolex dealer in the country that's located in, basically, a pawn shop. it's a carmel pawn shop. and the selection of both new and used ones is outstanding. i got one that rolex produced as a prototype in 3 different models. the face is unique, so i guess if i ever have to sell it, i'l have that going for me.
take the trip to carmel (it's on the main drag about a block from the beach) and shop the used ones/new ones all in one place, and check into other swiss watches as well.

Prosper overflow for today...

9. I am in process of getting my new web-based luxury accessory store up and running. In the past I really focused on luxury handbags (i.e. DB, Coach, Louis Vuitton). I am looking to move more toward watches and other accessories as this is where my focus has been lately. I'm looking into Movado, Bulova, Rolex, just to name a few. I've been studying for over a year and I'm ready to take the leap. I've found a supplier (what a dumbass...LV and Rolex don't sell to wholesalers, so if he has a 'supplier' then he's selling Chinese fakes!) I trust and have attended a few workshops for marketing my site online
