“When this luxury fake Patek Philippe UK first came out,” Yu says, “I just thought it was gorgeous. It has this beautiful ombré brown dial. I had been calling around, tracking it all over. One day I was in New York and I called around, and a retailer had one in stock. So I was like: ‘Great. I will be in, in the next 30 minutes. Just hold it for me.’ I go in, I’m with my ex – and they address him the entire time. Like, ‘Thank you, sir, for coming in, blah, blah, blah.’ I’m like: ‘Okay, I’m the one that called. I’m here for the perfect replica Patek Philippe.’ They bring the watch out and they bring it to him. I’m like: ‘Okay, this watch is for me. Thank you very much.’ I try it on: ‘Great. I will take it.’ I hand them my card, and they come back with the receipt and give it to him! They interact with him the whole time, even though it’s clear it’s for me. I’m the one trying it on. I’m the one calling. My partner is silent the entire time. He is not buying the super clone watches online for me – I’m buying it for myself. It was just so indicative of misogyny in the watch world.”
Even that unpleasantness can’t detract from the AAA quality replica Patek Philippe itself, which is gorgeous, rare, and as valuable as a condominium. And with characteristic tenacity, Yu has chosen to use the incident as motivation. “It does drive me to do the work that I’m doing. Not only my coaching but also the work that I do here at Four One Nine to give people resources and infrastructure that they previously were not given. I was overlooked. I am still overlooked.
And I understand that if someone had just given me a chance or given me some more guidance or resources, I would have run with it. So this 1:1 fake Patek Philippe, to me, represents that hunger that I feel within myself and that I seek in others. I’m like: ‘Oh, you’re hungry? I can work with hunger. I know what that’s like.'”
