AP attacks plastic

A bit cryptic perhaps, but that’s what Audemars Piguet does…?Ǭ† The company has taken action against all the plastic ‘fashion’ copies of their watches. The plastic imitations (mostly Rolex, to be honest I haven’t seen an AP copy yet) are very populair here in Europe.

It doesn’t reflect the real thing and it also doesn’t try to be the real thing. A different view than the imitations made in the Asian regions, which can be sold as an authentic watch (including box and papers!).

I wouldn’t spend too much money on lawyers and investigators if I were AP 🙂
