Rolex sues Henderson residents over sale of replicas
Inc. has filed a lawsuit asserting counterfeiting and trademark claims against two Henderson residents it says are operating a Web site selling replica Rolex watches. 3 made an undercover purchase of a “gold Swiss made, Rolex Replica DayDate Swiss (AAA+++)” watch for $499.
Upon receipt of the watch, Rolex found it bore counterfeits of its trademarks Rolex, the Crown Device, Oyster Perpetual and Day Date, the suit said, adding Rolex technicians determined none of the watch parts are of Rolex origin.
“Through the Web site, defendants intentionally, maliciously and willfully sold, offered for sale, distributed, promoted and advertised watches bearing counterfeits of one or more of the Rolex registered trademarks, despite knowledge that such sales were illegal,” the suit alleges.
A look at the Web site Friday showed it offers for sale goods including handbags, jewelry, clothing, shoes and watches.
The myspace page promoting the site calls it “the home of quality replica watches” and other goods.
Messages for comment on the allegations were left through the Web site Friday.

Here a hint: If you are offered a Rolex for sale for $500 or less, it a replica.
Besides, anybody under 50 that would wear a Rolex, (real or re hollister plica) is a d bag. Anybody over the age of 50 who would wear a replica Rolex is a d bag too.
If got money, go buy a Breitling or other watch. F hollister lag
If an item advertised is done so clearly saying in the description, one should not have a reasonable expectation of receiving the genuine article.
The problem arises when an item is resold to an unsuspecting 3rd party as an original, and the third party may be inexperienced in detecting real from fake.
I have a real Rolex, and it feels like a real Rolex it solid, heavy and expensive as heck to have up like my Ferrari (another company sue happy over kits see Ferrari vs. Mcburnie, the maker of the kit used to convert a Corvette into the black Ferrari Daytona used in Miami Vice).
