Meanwhile,  whatever stock rescued by the factory workers from the raids are turning up at corner stalls for sale

But how can I be sure they’re genuine fakes?

Raids are still on going, aka the market is still under surveillance, so everyone keep their head tucked in and wait for the father of the angry son that got swindled in buying a rep at the price of rep, to move on to others things. This is not what happened, but must still be pretty close

Not really close at all.  From my Chinese friends, these raids are the low-hanging fruit for various local governmental entities to display fidelity to CCP's Xi Jinping Thought in which they are trying to root out corruption.

I said that one of the first raids earlier this year of ZF was different - but everyone blew it off as a nothingburger.

I have better sources ;) 

It's just a little bit of everything in reality

here we are, trying to discussing the veracity of news on fake watch production.  We are a sad bunch indeed.

So, I have heard comments/rumblings from TDs that prices may creep up to reflect the difficulty / risks of doing business.  Any one else heard that and/or witnessed this price creep?

Fortunately not. I have ordered a piece 2 weeks ago and also I was discussing the availability of another one a day ago. Prices were BAU, no changes.

Did you hear the gossips from a TD? Or just some jibba-jabba between forum users?

It would be a bit ridiculous IMO. This business was always risky so it would be just an excuse to make more money...

Hey, just a thought but these are some new submariners made by some new (at least new to me) factory called VMF.

They seem to be running on 3235 clone movement. Aren't these by any chance the VSF under a "new" name? Kinda hard to determine that based on the available pics....

That table makes for damning reading!

Have I missed something, VSF permanently shut their doors then?

Only NOOB - as in the word "permanently" which is a bit of a giveaway

seems that the chatter is that its a new(er) factory?   quality comparable to VSF.    Pricing end of week.   Lets see how this Rollie rep unfolds  :popcorn:

If it would happen to be the "new" VSF my hope would be that other VSF reps will come back to market, omegas and panerais for example.

bit perplexed at why you're being quite so insistent with this. Nonetheless, can confirm I'm already paid up and awaiting my status change - apparently you'll be thrilled to know.

I guess he potential hint here is the 3235 clone movement. Afaik, the only factory using these was indeed it VSF.
