I think there is a place for fakes.
The only reason I can see that he wears the fake Rolex out instead of a reasonably priced other brand is to impress people? When people ask if it is real does he tell them it is fake but he has a real one at home? I would love to be part of this conversation.

I go to Thailand a lot and there are grades of fakes and tons of places selling them so there is absolutely a market, definitely not for me. Only reason I see to buy a fake is you want people to think you have a real one but don't want to spend the money. Like any other fake item I am fine with people doing it and hope it accomplishes their goal. I have seen some Fiero's that people tried to make look like Ferrari's, good for them, same with the vinyl Gucci bags sold all over Thailand.
