Can I wear my replica watch while swimming or showering?
No. Replica watches are not designed to be able to withstand being submerged in water. Do not shower, swim, sit in a sauna or play any water sports while wearing your replica watch. Occasional moisture, such as walking through the rain, will probably not damage your watch. But it’s a good general rule of thumb to not allow it to become submerged in any way.

Do most replica watch owners have their watches serviced?
No, most replica watches are not serviced. A high-quality replica watch will last you for years, but they are not meant to be a watch that you will wear for the rest of your life, like a Rolex.
