Fakes being sold on Amazon?

The description states it will come with original logo, and that its a "noob" watch, which is a known brand of fake watches...

Below the description is a link to click saying "Report incorrect product information". I'm guessing that is really the only way.

Yeah, Amazon does not have a good way to report fakes or other serious issues.

It's got a maker's name and logo that aren't "Rolex" or Rolex's, and the description calls it an "homage."

How is this a "fake"?

Per the description. Even calls out "noob factory" which is the #1 maker of fakes.

Our Noob factory watch is reasonable in price with tight margins, is recognized the value is greater than price. As a famous and trusted brand of luxury Swiss watches can makes a person feel confident about himself. So we actually send the original logo instead of "WLISTH"

I would normally consider this an homage, except the second image is clearly of a Rolex movement. Kinda shady with that. I'm okay with obvious homages that clearly have other names and movements, but this listing leans toward counterfeit.

This is why it is fake and not an homage.

You guys are giving this very well known manufacturer of fakes far too much credit.

These are 100% fake watches; if you bought one it would have Rolex on the dial/clasp/fake movement.

I gave no "credit." I asked TRF a question, which you've answered. Thank you.

The image is photoshopped.

Reading the description/FAQ's, it implies that there will be "r" badging - read between the lines.

Interesting that the guy has a San Diego phone number that he freely gives out in the listing.

Amazon has been host to fake luxury items for the past few years, this is nothing new. It's gotten so rampant now that it's hard to believe they have not put a better system in place to stop it. Sometimes it's the first thinigs that show up when you search a luxury brand. I doubt many people go on Amazon to purchase any real luxury brands to begin with....I sure woudn't
