The organization explained that because best 1:1 replica Rolex created “a program for the online purchase of pre-owned watches, whose authenticity it guarantees” with a retailer, “an absolute ban on the online selling of its products cannot therefore be justified.” However, high quality fake Rolex did not face any penalties for alleged price restricting, with regulators stating that “the evidence in the case did not prove top copy Rolex France had restricted the pricing freedom of its authorized retailers.”
