The funny thing is that most people are looking for wholesalers of these items but the actuall source of the items are the manufacturers themselves. Its the retailers that mark them up to insane prices.
Good point there, the retailer businesses are the ones who make crazy profits, but try finding a genuine designer watch manufacturer, of whom sells to individuals. Most will only sell to registered businesses, or someone with a huge order. I guess this is part of the reason the market is flooded with fakes..
