I have handled a whole bunch of cases like this and the answer is most likely no. Selling any kind of knock off gives rise to a whole host of claims by the holder of the brand (Rolex). Talk to a lawyer about what te watches actually are (do they have the brand name etc.)

A replica watch is a nice way of saying counterfeit.


Even if a customer knows that he or she is buying a fake product (i.e., a "counterfeit" or "replica" product), the offer to sell the product and its purchase are still both unlawful because the brand owner is harmed when fakes of its product are circulating out in public.


Not without infringing Rolex's trademark.
