I went back to the shop I ended up buying from so many times that as a guy there on his own and taking plenty of photos with my phone (to send to my friend back home) the owner got seriously spooked! He genuinely thought I was from "the company" [hermes] out to collect fakes then start prosecuting him.

You find that the "real fakes" are usually not on display but in a separate "hidden" room upstairs.

And what others have said about the quality of these bags v. the prices. Seriously not worth it. Ditto fake watches in my experience.

People will argue fake vs real to the death. The fact it the real thing is overpriced and the fakes have poorer quality... Both sides are at fault! My rules have always been:

1. Find a really good deal on a REAL item when someone is hurting for cash or doesn't know what they have and jump on it.

OR

2. Buy a fake that is decent enough quality and cheap enough that even if it breaks in a year you got your use out of it.

Personally I rather have 50 fake watches than 1 real one (as that's about the offset in price for a rolex/tag/ etc...) I am hard on my watches and to have multiple that can match each outfit or style of clothes and take a beating is definitely worth it. With that said I do have a couple real ones for special occasions

I'm the same for watches, I've got a couple of fakes, one of which is actually really good and is very, very close in quality to the real one I've got. The other fake isn't as good and looses time.

Still I don't mind wearing the fake one out on a night out or going shopping etc as if it gets lost or breaks I don't mind too much, but if I damaged the genuine I would be very upset!

Hi, there's quite a reputable guy with really good quality goods called Rahoul Abou whom you can befriend on FB. He has albums of all his stock on FB, so choose what you're interested in, message him and then fetch from his store in Karama. 😃

Does anyone know how to activate Pvt messages? I can't seem to access it on my mobile - is it something I need to sign up for separately?

No offense but you are much better of having a single real one (even if it is an entry level luxury watch such as Longines or Omega).

People can recognise fake watches (no matter how good the watch is!) and once they do, they would no longer trust you because to me and to many others, wearing a fake watch says a lot about the character and the type of the individual.
