Full gold Day Date for her and big Panerai for him, plus the full set from head to toe: Gucci shoes, full Gucci+LV+Bottega Veneta. Tracksuit, sweater, pants, cap, bag, even the luggage. And indeed they proceeded to economy, and not even with priority boarding, lol. I mean, you are wearing more than 50k combined and then you skip even the upgrade to get priority boarding? Lmao.

    (Although I've been travelling with my Nautilus several times, so the 50k joke would easily apply to me to, hahaha)

          To be fair, why bother taking priority boarding? It's a total waste of money. The plane isn't leaving without you.

            Short trips, where everyone brings massive hand luggages and want to put all of them in the cabin, for example. If you are one of the last entering the plane chances are that your hand luggage will end up in the cargo hold and when you land you will have to wait for it. I travel often and if it's just a two or three day trip I only travel with hand luggage, with some formal shirts, informal stuff and a suit, and I don't want to waste time waiting in queues either to get on the plane or to wait for my luggage.

            Although if you are checking lots of bags and don't travel with hand luggage then I agree, priority is not quite useful.

              Agree 100%! Only useful during security. When I'm boarding I always relax and wait until everyone else is already in. Why bother standing in line for such a long time? You're going to be sat there for a couple hours at least, why the rush?

              Kind of true, yes. But some airports shift bags quickly. And only applies to trips where you only take cabin luggage

                This is true, especially on no-frills airlines.

Unbeknownst to me, the TSA security agent was actually hurk and he saw that i was wearing a vietnam gen spec 1675, but the R on the dial had too short legs, so he proceeded to lock both of us up.

                  Because of the fact that I ratted the other passenger out, I am now placed in protective custody. The other guy has been throwing little scraps of paper through my cell window every day with some nasty threats.

                    At least we are not talking about Trump.

                    Back in the ‘90s I flew to Caracas. I always had a Swiss Army knife (the smallest one) in my pocket. In those days, you could.

                    When leaving the airport in Caracas they took my little knife. I told them it was a present from a blind nun I saved from a crocodile, and the customs guy put it in his pocket. Fortunately his senior saw that and made him remove it from his pocket, which he rapidly inserted in his pocket. While I was arguing a few other officials came to se what the commotion was and the guy had to show it to the others.

                    Finally, the most senior officer took it and put it in his pocket and walked away.

                    I was wearing a gen Rolex and they never even looked at it.

                    Keep it up, ladies! This is fun!

                      My relative true story really not making fun.


                      2 weeks ago she traveled to Geneva, she was wearing a replica Rolex, replica Gucci belt, replica Louis vitton travel luggage and a replica channel wallet. She bought all those copies from France and Turkey.

                      The customs stopped her and told her you have illegal items with you and it is against the country laws.

                      They detained her from 10:00 till 17:00. They made 4 custom illegal counterfeit reports to her for every piece/item.

                      They wanted her to pay a fine of 10,000 francs, after she said that she bought these items for a large amount of money and she said that she bought them from France and turkey, and if it was illegal why it was being sold in the first place . She told them she didn't know that by wearing them she is breaking any laws


                      They took the luggage, wallet, watch and belt. And she put all her cloths in a big blue plastic bag. And released her.

                      Not joking true story, I don't know why they did that to her.

                        AFAIK, it is legal to have reps. It is only illegal to sell them...

                          Yes that what I thought as well.

                          I am trying to understand why and how all this happened and if they really have the right to do so.

                          I guess the Louis vitton lugage was a red flag. And maybe when they start to ask if it is authentic or not. She said no not authentic and that's how they took advantage of the situation.

                          But the real question is wearing or trying to enter the country with replicas as your belongings, bags shoes watches belts etccc breaks the laws and is illegal in Geneva?

                            I know that’s the case in the U.K.
                            Switzerland might be different as it is the case in Australia. Customs will seize imported faked goods when passing thought the borders

                              Switzerland is a very tight country regarding clone watches. Moreover (not sure it was the case), it’s definitely a red flag if you are packed with 50k+ flashy designer items and proceed to economy class.

                                Because counterfeit items are illegal in some countries - and that includes possession of, import of, export of, sale of.
