"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"
What are the goods and items that get imitated the most?
Expensive luxury watches, handbags and jewelry are usually at the top of the list along with electronics and even brand computers. Also there should be a clear distinction between 1:1 copies or knockoffs that pretend to be the real product and by doing so are breaking copyright law and than there are imitations that look a lot like the watch of bag that they are copied from, but by removing logos and changing some aspects of the design they are staying clear of braking the law.
Jules-Louis Audemars and Edward-Auguste Piguet founded a watch making company in 1875. They aimed to make complicated movements for watches. The company was first established in La Brassus right at the center of Vallee de Joux within the Swiss Jura region. They promoted their watches using the Audemars Piguet name as they released Haute Horlogerie watches.
In 1972, The Royal Oak was launched. It was the world’s first luxury sport watch that is clad in stainless steel. By then, the watch was different from all the existing watches at that time when it was introduced at the Basel watch fair. It even looked unique in appearance with its octagonal bezel shape.
Audemars Piguet has successfully established itself as one of the leading watch makers of luxury watches in the world. It also boasts of a rich history as the company is known for inventing its own movements and completing all of its watches.
The History of TAG Heuer Watches
In 1874, Louis-Francois Cartier founded the watch company with his name. The company was known as the master jeweler and had the honor to do the watches of the Crowned Head of State in Europe. The Santos was the name of the company's first watch ever launched in 1904. Two years later, the company released the Jewelled watches.
In 1910, the Deployment Folding Clasp was developed by the company, which was a slight deviation from their usual watches. However, this clasp has become famous and is now used in most watches all over the world. In 1917, the Cartier Tank Francaise was released and is still showed off as a model watch with its design and style.
The contemporary watches and jewelry produced usually have something obtained from the designs of the founder.
