    Another clue of a dodgy business is that "geneva_watchs" can't spell "watches" correctly in their business name ;)

    Any post on instagram with a whatsaspp contact is a source of replicas.
    Facebook and Instagram track your likes and preferences, and accordingly hammer you with ads that might be relevant to you.

    I am amazed with the number of PAID ads linking to replica sellers.

    Watch brands should really raise the issue with Facebook.

    True, facebook is full of paid ads of replicas sellers. some of them write clearly that they sell replicas, and some others are more dangerous because they advertise "big outlet sale with 80% off".
    It is very easy to spot a replica pendulum: The original one has a mechanical movement without hairspring, the replicas offer a complimentary hairspring :D
    Even from the photo above, you can see that the opening of the dial doesn't show a pendulum, but a piece of Chinese skeleton movement.
