Industry Groups Team-up to Stamp out Fake Swiss Watches

The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) and the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (FH) have joined forces to stamp out fake watches.

According to the FHH, the campaign will center around hard-hitting visuals and one simple message: "Fake Watches Are For Fake People."

The stepped up effort is in response to the rapidly growing counterfeit business, said to be worth as much as $360 billion a year. This includes more than 40 million fake Swiss watches.

These counterfeit timepieces damage the sales, reputation and capacity for innovation of the world's fine watch brands, according to the press release.

    They’d do a better job of convincing people of the seriousness of their cause if they didn’t use what looks like mannequin (fake) hand as a model prop.


  2. Well there are many new watches that have come up. These are the best designer watches that you can grab your wrist on…

    It’s fabulous !!

  3. Well i think watches are the best way to show the status and level of personality. I think there are so many brands are available in the market so that this is really a great thing to choose the best one. Those Swiss Watches are really the most demanding thing.
    Anyways keep it up and keep continue with your valuable thoughts.
