My only gripe with expensive watches is the real possibility of kuchezewa kabaya more so huku kwa vumbi. Once saw a documentary about fake Rolex watches nikaogopa. Unalipia premium prices for takataka na hutawahi jua.
Mimi hushanga sana kuskia mtu ananunua knock off.
If you can afford to buy a Rolex, you buy it directly from Rolex. The same with Hublot or any premium watch.
Those who are buying knock offs are buying from the black market because they can barely afford it. Or they're not patient to get on a waiting list -- if you want to buy a Rolex, you have to get on a waiting list for 2 years after your request.
Some luxury watch brands even require customers to write a letter begging to buy their overpriced products.
The human psychology is very interesting. If you make something scarce and exclusive, your customers will be begging you to buy your product just because of an illusion you've created.
