Checking out fake watches at the Beijing Silk Market. This market caters mostly to Tourists, and has floors packed with knockoff clothing, jewlery, electronics, and textiles. Most of these watches they have on display are low-mid range fakes, but they're quick to bring out briefcases of high-end fakes on request.

I looked at a bunch of fakes, but couldn’t bring myself to purchase one – I’d much rather save up and buy the real thing with the true material, craftsmanship and functionality, rather than wear a fake that only shows off a brand name, but nothing behind it. The Seiko SKX009K that I currently wear daily isn’t the priciest watch, but I love the look of it, and it works reliable day in day out. I’ve traveled the world with it, beaten the shit out of it, been diving, climbing, swimming, hiking, biking, and clubbing with it, and it continues to look and work great. I’d take that over a glitzy brand name any day.
