Which is real and which is fake? Can't tell the difference? Well, that's because the fake watch is not just any old fakery, it's an award-winning falsification!
Every year, Museum Plagiarius Solingen, a German museum dedicated to showcasing the best of fake items, awards its Plagiarius Award to the world's best knockoffs:
This past year, a counterfeiter in Thailand replicated a Swiss Fortis watch (shown here) with such precision that it garnered a special award for falsification. The fake differs in details only the sharpest eye would notice—missing glow-in-the-dark paint on the face, smaller crowns that are buffed rather than brush-finished, and temperature scales with incorrect unit symbols. “The expensive details are left out, but the first impression is the same,” says Christine Lacroix, the museum’s managing director.
