Time’s Up for 2 Fake Watch Peddlers

Copying successful brand marks and trade names and hawking them around the streets, bars and markets of Thailand is a common practice proving highly profitable for the hawkers but extremely annoying to the producers of the originals, fearful of loss of income from fashionable articles. They also fear their good name being besmirched by the inferior quality of the goods being sold this way.
