According to a  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) media release, officers in Philadelphia seized 38 designer brand watches that, if authentic, would have had a manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $412,750. Instead, they’re headed to destruction.
The shipment from Hong Kong was labeled as containing “Lithium Ion Batteries in CO”, upon further inspection, CBP found counterfeit watches bearing the Rolex, Invicta, Rado and Hublot luxury brand names. CBP also enlisted the efforts of the Consumer Products and Mass Merchandise Centers for Excellence and Expertise (CEE) for verification with the trade mark holders.
