I just found out that one of the attorneys in the office I work at wears a Rolex replica watch. I found this to be hilarious and laughed out loud when he told me this. He explained that it was just as good as the real thing and that he did own a real one, but was always scared of losing or breaking it.
He told me he got the real one from his father when he completed his bar exam and that his father passed away shortly after that. It was the last thing he gave him, and my colleague did not want to risk losing it. That is when he looked into buying replica watches.
He said the watch replicas looked exactly like the real thing and no one could tell that he was wearing the replica. When he explained the whole story, it actually made a lot of sense to me and I apologized for laughing and told him I was sorry about his father. It was all good.
