Rolex vs Almost Rolex
Another Real x #Realfake
Not really sure what I think of this video. The Voice is that of an English Accent voice-over for a dramatic possible horror movie. Then it kinda’ rambles about 3D printing and how easy it is to make a prototype. I suspect what is missing is the quality of a real Rolex. Pretty sure they are wanting us to purchase the real deal. The video rambles so much I couldn’t tell what the 3 points were that they were attempting to tell us. Either way it brings up the big debate of wearing the Real Real or the #realfake version of things.
Back in the day the fake Rolex from the streetz of NY was easy to spot. Extra Gaudy and it ticked instead of smoothly sweeping. And went for $40-$75. It was fun to wear 3-4x at the Club, then toss or give it to a friend.
Since then, I’ve owned 2 x #realfake Rolex that smoothly sweep, both were about $100 each. The first, my friend with a real Rolex, got pretty upset when his wife complimented me on my watch. You should have seen his face! Priceless!! But then, on another night at a party, it was a bit embarrassing when it fell off my wrist and broke into 3 pieces on the ground. BTW: No one saw this happen but me. 🙂
The second #realfake I have is from December 2019. I negotiated for about 20 minutes to get it. Not sure who got the best of the negotiation. Seemed like by the time we were done, I didn’t really want it and he didn’t care if he sold it to me. Then before I could get the links right to wear it, Covid-19 happened and it sits in my home unwearable.
All Dressed up and Nowhere to Go has Never been more Real than Today
That takes us on to a whole nother thought about he world as of August 12, 2020. Why buy anything when there is no where to wear it to? All Dressed up and Nowhere to Go has never been more real than today. Kicks, watches, hoodies, suits, dress shoes, whatcha’ gonna do? It’s still tempting to purchase. But, there’s no where to wear anything. Flexing at the Grocery store anyone? I can barely get in and out without a nervous wreckage to my bodily system. Doubt I would even see you rockin’ your new J’s, Yeezy’s, Real or #realfake Rolex.
I’ll just keep mine in the condo, awaiting a vaccine party, hopefully to come in late 2020 or early 2021. Then and only then, I may or may not even wear it. Do things like real or #realfake Rolex or Jordan’s really matter now or did they ever? When staying healthy, eating well, drinking green juice, meditation and yoga, making and keeping connections are so much more important now, than Kicks, watches or hoodies.
As of lately, I’ve been secretly donating some of my rare kicks to the basketball court across the street from my home. Why? Not really sure. It just feels like something I want to do. Will I miss the kicks down the line? Miss the $ I coulda’ made? Who knows. Right now, I think it’s better to give them to the universe. And hopefully, make someone happy, even if its just 5% more happy. That 5-20% happier, could mean the difference between life and possibly something much worse.
What do you think? Get the real Rolex? Or is it ok to Rock a #realfake? Let us know in the comments section. You can also let us know where you’re rockin’ your latest kicks? Maybe IG? The Grocery store? Or nowhere? And do you have enough stuff? Or is it time to give it to someone? Sell it? Or keep it on ice? Such a different world we live in today. Your answer, like mine maybe different today then tomorrow. Or as it is as of late. Our answers will probably vary from this hour till next hour. That is how it is around this world I live in now on August 12, 2020.
Hope you like me, can be and stay Happy, Healthy, Positive and Safe. Looking Good or wearing the same sweats all week.
See you on the Streetz…blog.
