    Not a watch but I keep this clock on my bench, has a multi bit driver and a 6" ruler on it for when I'm workin' on knives.


    I should windexed it before I snapped a shot, I'll have to get another pic up.

    Sorry, all my pics are gone thanks to PhotoRANSOMWAREbucket's greed. I have even been paying them for several years for a "pro" account - they are scum IMHO.

    @bhyde and 'Forumites,'

    Is it OK, if I show my real watch with fake Chris Reeve knifes? I'm just wondering where the line for intellectual property and trademark infringement is on this sub-forum?

    I do not own any fake knives or anything, for that matter. What makes a CRK is the maker and the same is said about anything else. It's odd that some are willing to pay for the exclusivity of a name and its product and cheat others intellectual property at the same time.

    I have not pointed at anyone and I'm not pointing at anyone specific. I just want to try and understand the rationalizing...

    In a world ('knife world') where the name and maker means everything, it seems odd that doesn't translate into all matters of 'eclectic' procuring.

    If this causes a sh#tstorm - please - just delete my post.

    The answer to your first question is obviously rhetorical, and needn't be asked. I would agree with your concern if you're seeing fake watches here. If you've seen some, maybe a message to the moderator would be warranted?

    Edit to add a watch photo. Keeping in line with the seiko trend:

    Never been able to wear a watch at any point in time..I guess the cell phone serves that role for me.
    Anyway, the point is, I am not an authority on anything watch related other than some brand recognition here and there..

    My personal stance on this is that fakes/clones and homages are hurtful to the IP owner, no matter the form..Knives, watches..It doesn't matter.
    This goes for this subforum- The rest of the site would fall under a little different purview with moderators and or Spark making the decision..but in this subforum, I won't tolerate them.
    Point them out and I will remove them..but as I have stated, I am ignorant to what is fake and real in the watch world.

    It's obvious you've seen a pic with a fake watch or several. I'm like @bhyde, I don't know enough about watches to know the difference. Evidently you do.
    Did it ever occur to you, that maybe, the poster of the fake watch doesn't know it's a fake. A PM to inform them would be helpful, if they get all pissy, report it.
    Now, if this was a watch forum posting knives, I'm sure any fake watch would be recognized immediately. But, since this is a knife forum posting watches, a fake CRK would be called out immediately.
    @HST folks have bought fake CRK's and not known it. There's several threads that address such purchases by honest people that are not as knowledgeable as some. I would rather know if I had a fake watch as opposed to thinking it was real and looking foolish showing it off.

    I refuse to point, but with almost absolute assuredly, they know what they have. There's some non-exsitant configuration watches being shown. It's that simple for most of them.

    I will not point them out, so I will shut up. I will let conscience be their guide or their own further research (99% it isn't the latter).

    @Ajack60 The reason I didn't say anything to the people wearing them is because they already know. They usually enjoy having people compliment them knowing they're fake. Think of it like this, "Sebenza" clones being called a real Sebenza by noobs. Total win for those guys...

    @bhyde I agree about this sub forum and your conclusion. It's why I asked you first before I posted. Moreover, we're buying a brand and its prestige here and it seemed odd that that didn't translate into the rest of the world.

    I have my first CRK on the way. I will post it immediately here with a watch. I also have two factory ordered and waiting like the rest.

    Thanks for the honest answers and the back up of integrity regarding intellectual property. Sorry I'm a little late, but last week was exhausting.

    I am not a fan of this kind of "I know something, but I won't tell." To me this is kids behaviour.

    You seem to regard yourself as an expert but then you are fearing an open discussion? This is an internet forum and not a secret brotherhood. Every knife (or watch) people are posting here can be discussed. Otherwise people should not post their babies over here. Simple as that. So if you have to make a comment on a certain watch shown ..... and it seems that you are having a strong pressure inside to do so ..... well then go ahead and say what you have to say.

    Just my 2c.

    I am by no means an expert. I buy these watches and know the brands. Their Ambasadors invite me to their social events. I'm an enthusiast at best, however, I'm an horological fanatic.

    The reason I'm not going to point fingers, because that's childish. I find your comment childish, not understanding that I don't want to point fingers. If you wanna know that bad, look at some legit models of the models being posted here - it won't take long.

    @James Longstreet Make no mistake, I said what I had to say. I don't care, if you're satisfied with my replies.

    I will make no more comments, about this subject. I'm over it, as I hit "Post Reply."

    Okay, Longstreet, you've got 48 pages to rifle through, so best get started.

    While you're digging through the crates, here's a pic to get us back on track:
