Believe me, China getting in a war anywhere would be foolish now that they manufacturer everything for everybody. That would be like Apple getting in a war here in the US with California. I can say they make fine products when they do clones though. I have a real nice all 18k gold Rolex president that I am afraid to wear but love. I bought a Chi Com clone for $250.00 that had a box papers and everything so i could wear it instead of my real one in case anyone pointed a gun at me and said give me your Rolex. I was wearing it into a Jewelry store once and they sold Rolex, the guy behind the counter, a Certified Rolex pro said It sure is nice to see An authentic Rolex President once in a while! lol! I told him it was fake and he had to look at it for ten minutes and open the case and then said he wanted one!
