Michael Kors is one of those designers that has indescribable flare and style. Like many well-known designers, their collections are often times copied. The watch that you just bought could be an imitation and you don't even know it. How do you tell if you're buying fraudulent watches, or any luxury timepiece, for that matter? There are telltale signs of these types of watches. Below are some guidelines to help you determine whether you have an authentic timepiece or not:

• How much did you spend on this piece? If you got an incredible deal…you know, one that seems too good to be true, it probably was. Famous maker designer timepieces don't necessarily have to be ultra-expensive, but they won't come cheap either. These types of collections will usually not be priced under $200. If you run across a wristwatch priced well under this amount, it will most likely be less than genuine. Know the standard retail prices of the watchmaker you are interested in.

• Look for discrepancies in craftsmanship. Most of the makers of lesser quality watches will make mistakes. You might see a misspelled word on the dial or even glue holding numbers or logos in place. Luxury watches won't show any signs of glue and their names will be spelled correctly.

• Who did you buy this timepiece from? Did you check them out and read all the fine print before you made the purchase? If not, you might be in trouble. If you are going to shop on the internet, make certain that you are working with a reputable dealer. After you buy from an irresponsible vendor you can't guarantee that you will be able to make an exchange or return, so be careful up front.

• Most high quality timepieces will be made in Switzerland. The Swiss made name is one that represents quality and integrity. If you are buying a watch from a Swiss watchmaker and there is a "made in China" stamped on the back, beware.

It really boils down to the fact that you have to know your facts. It's up to you, the consumer, to be knowledgeable about the pieces and their makers. You need to know pricing and be able to recognize fine materials when you see them. You must be diligent and only buy from well-respected on-line dealers. In the end, if you do your homework…you will not be deceived.
