Thanks for that. Informative. I agree, these cannot be compared to a TAG and I wouldn't do so. My gripe is the misleading ad
campaigns that portray these products as being worth more than they are - with the so called reason for low price being that they cut out the 'middle-man' and thus the massive (because with these kinds of reductions they have to be!) overheads. You get a heavy watch which is blingy and can in truth be quite head turning. Very close scrutiny however displays minor flaws which you probably wouldn't find on expensive designer watches. Your statement about QVC pushing these products into a higher league - isn't that just bare faced fabrication on their part? Or do they hope that when you get the item for 30 day trial, you'll be so happy you'll keep it anyway? The other thing to note is that these watches are apparently being sold in the lobbys of major 5 star hotels at their RRP's which can be into hundreds of pounds. I know this because my daughter recently stayed at a the Hilton in London and saw KK watches being sold for 300 pounds plus.
