Vintage Watch Blog.
Okay Ladies and Gents, I understand that you may not be a watch collector, or know really anything about watches, their history, mechanics, brands etc. Most people I talk with never heard of a Vacheron or Patek or Piaget... The only thing people heard of is Rolex....in general. So, I get it - your "watch stupid" but you do like watches; and that's okay...I think battleships are cool but I know nothing about them. What prompted me to make this blog is that I was doing some updating SEO for my site. I started googling different vintage items of interest and alas, almost the entire first page of google (which are mostly paid ads) are retailers of "cool men's products." So I started looking at them. I search, "Vintage Military Watches" and a lot of ads come up from companies I never heard of; and they are selling watches that they are calling vintage military watches (they even include dates like "1960's") and they are brand new watches made in China or somewhere foreign. The rest of the page had a lot more of this. I don't even want to describe the carnage I saw when I searched for Rolex. Now, these fake watchmakers have been getting smart and calling their watches that are duplicates of other real more expensive watches by another brand names. These "brands" you never heard of usually aren't real. That keeps things under the radar and prevents lawsuits in some cases.
To give you the readers digest version, I get it. You like the style, you don't know about watches, it's hard to invest in things you don't know about, you hear horror stories from people that had bad experiences... - so you get something a tenth of the price that's new and looks the same. Here lies the problem. Most (not all) of these so called companies are not companies at all. They are selling you watches made by people with ties to terrorist organizations and most of the profit is used to kill innocent people like you and I. In fact, the entire industry of rip off fake luxury goods is one of the top revenue sources for these people and the terrorist organizations they represent. Go ahead and google it if you don't believe me. All the major legitimate publications have written about the proof that exists at some point over the past 10 years.
Please educate yourself on these things. England just yesterday had a major terror attack...Europe is littered with terrorists waiting to strike and it will be on our shores if it's not already. These people need money. Where do you think it comes from? They aren't working on farms. As consumers and citizens, if you are one, we live in a Republic not a democracy. It is our job to pay attention to these things. It is our job to hold congress accountable for the lack of regulations on imports or smuggling. But at the very least, please remember this post. If all you can afford to buy is a Fossil or Timex, than by all means just do that or save money for the watch you want that is real. And shop at a reputable dealer if vintage and an authorized retailer if new. I take the time to write this because, yes I need to make a living, but more important I love our country and we must protect it. Our founding fathers knew that; and they knew we would forget one day, which is why it is in the largest possible font on our constitution "We the People". God bless America and our allies. Aside from working in the vintage watch business, I also do work for National Write Your Congressman. A truly great organization that gives you the tools to use your influence in congress.. Yes, you actually have influence. You can learn more about it on my personal site adamdubilo.com . I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I'm mostly video blogging now so please subscribe to my YouTube channel to keep updated on new inventory and anything else I want to rant about.
