        Considering he is selling pages upon pages of parts with a big online prescence, and established LLC meaning it was purely a business entity... kind of naive to think they wouldnt be a target... curious to see if Rolex can prove that they intentionally deceived customers though....

          It isn’t good, but I wondered how they got away with it.

                      That's why TC turned legit. There's only short stretch of turf where you're ahead of the game. Then the hounds will catch on. Is the Noob next? SMH.

                            It’s a Swiss company tho. Why only touch US fake manufacturer?

                              This seems to me that R is doing something frivolous. All they have to do is site aftermarket and free economy. Their designs of vintage watches are long passed patents or other laws. They only thing they could get him on is trademark infringement if he is using their logo etc. This is like saying Honda or Toyota are going to sue any company who makes parts that fit their cars that aren't OEM. I don't think this will fly. Unless they can prove he is "making" and selling replicas/forgeries for profit. The bad news is, they will shut him down and drown him in legal fees etc. But I suspect they have no real case if everything is clearly sold as aftermarket parts etc. With the swiss watch trade trying to create a monopoly on their parts etc. this may not be the wisest of cases to pursue for R. Just my two cents.
