The company which sells original watches revealed its intent is not to shame people but to sanitize the system since “the annual damage caused by brand and product piracy is estimated at 56 billion euros for German companies alone.”

Instead, they illegally use other people’s ideas and reproduce the goods in inferior quality.”
