Well, depending on where you are. IF you are in the US you could have appealed and told them they are REPLICAS because it's perfectly LEGAL to buy reps in the us.
However, in my case, being in south america, I would have to suck it up and cough the tax money they ask, though they actually ask 50% of the real price (I know, it's ridiculous, so I would just tell them to keep the watches)
My watch seller also told me to make small packages.. so i ordered one instead of two.
Yesterday, I ordered and paid for a Chanel J12 from Josh. I got the white diamond bezel 33mm. It's apparently been sent already - yay, can't wait to see it. Josh is super fast after he has received payment.
As for the blow up doll note on the package....I would die with my leg in the air if that ever happened to me. Give me the teddy anyday.
dewy_blueeyes : Chronos seem to be VERY hard to duplicate in terms of mechanism.. My hubby got a very nice Omega rep last year (which I had no idea of) and his "needles" came off while trying to adjust the time..
This also happened on my auth emporio armani (this was such a cheap watch it wasnt even worth looking for a rep, plus I´ve never owned a rep watch in my life.. I´m slowly getting the thought that there is no need to pay full price anymore? ) while trying to adjust the time during a flight.. I ended up not wearing a watch during my 2 week vacation. (and it was quartz movement!)
anyway, the watches mentioned right above seem to be repped very well down to the movement according to a watch forum, and it´s hundreds of people agreeing, so I´m followig
as for J-12 watches, jacky´s and catty´s might be really good, but I´d rather get them from a watch place than a bag place.. don´t you think?
EVEN if catty is my comfort zone and I would always choose catty over jacky or anyone else EXCEPT in certain cases such as the *gale or chan*l purses
Here is my H rep scarf 'toho bohu' from jacky. It just came in today. It is real silk twill and is thick and vibrant and big. It has fat rolled edges and the box is nice, too-but no ribbon. Pic taken with a flash (by me)
