Companies like Rolex, Chopard, Hublot, Cartier, Breitling etcetera manufacture watches which are considered as the best of its class.
Why do companies manufacture exact replicas of the luxury watches?
As the cost of this kind of watches goes up high, one can get them through its replica models. Rolex replica watches, for example, are circulated in the market, these replica watches are marketed under the same brand name and the cost of which is much lower than what the original watch would have cost. The watches created by the replica manufacturers are the exact same copy of the various luxury models of watches of the brand. Production of replica watches is illegal but in some cases, the production of a same to same replica watch is also considered legal which is termed as homage.
What is homage?
Homage watches are usually used for giving demonstrations and reviewing the watches on the internet so that the customers can be educated of the whereabouts of the watches that are being made by these watches brands. While homage replicas have the brand’s permission for the creation of such watches but the regular replicas of the watches that are made and circulated in the market for sale are not permitted by the brand itself and thus becomes illegal.

We also find Breitling replica watches being sold on the streets of the metropolitan cities where the price charge for this kind of replica watches are much lower than the usual price of the original Rolex or Breitling watches in the market. If an original version of a Rolex watch costs you $800 dollars, then a replica of the same model would cost you hardly $100 dollars in the consumers’ market which become comparatively much cheaper than the original watch.
