Movado Watch And The Families Many Arguments

I was recently at a holiday party with several members of my extended family. While the occasion was festive and the atmosphere reflected it, there was more than one occasion in which we did something most families do quite often; we argued with each other.

We were exchanging gifts. My brother had gotten his son a gorgeous Movado watch, and you could tell form both of their faces how much joy it brought the son as well as the father. And for no reason whatsoever, a distant cousin of ours, a man a similar age as my brother and myself, felt the inexplicable need to ask how much the Movado watch had cost.

My brother later privately revealed the price; a modest sum for such a luxurious designer timepiece. And again, this cousin felt some inexplicable need to show-off his lack of tact by exclaiming "you know you could have just gotten a replica for fifteen bucks?"

As too often happens, an argument ensued. And this argument soon became a lesson on the advantages of investing in a replica watch over the cheap replica. I felt like sharing three of the more significant points discussed that afternoon, in the event you too have a cousin who, like ours, needs a lesson in manners.

The Difference In Quality

This is perhaps the most obvious argument; you get what you pay for. A ten dollar watch bought on the street corner will never hold up in the long haul. The Movado watch my brother gave his son, meanwhile, will likely last his entire lifetime, and the lifetime of his children, and his children's children. A high quality luxury watch often lasts not just one, but several lifetimes. You'll be lucky if your replica watch lasts you a fortnight.

The Warranty

Except for death and taxes, nothing in life is truly guaranteed. Unfortunately, this is as true with brand name watches as it is with everything else. And while that Movado watch my brother bought his son has a high probability of lasting from decade to decade, there is the possibility that, like with anything, something could go wrong.

That's why any Movado watch, as well as a high majority of luxury designer watches, come with an unbeatable warranty. Now, the next time you find a replica watch being sold with a warranty, it will be by all accounts, the first time ever.

It's Illegal

That was how the argument ended in our household. Replica watches, just like counterfeit money, is illegal. And what kind of father buys his child a holiday gift that breaks the law?

After considering the issue, the advantages of authentic luxury watches were clear.
