A Cooper City, Florida man spent some time in jail after he was arrested for selling replica watches on Craigslist, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office representative.

Hymie Habib Chera, 24, was arrested Thursday for selling counterfeit (replica) Rolex timepieces to an agent hired by Rolex to investigate possible violations of trademark infringement (according to the Complaint Affidavit).  Each timepiece bore the Rolex trademark and logo.  Chera was asking $200 per replica Rolex watch he had listed on Craigslist.

Chera met the investigator around 10 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot at Flanagan's located at 2600 Davie Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale (according to the Affidavit).

Chera showed the man 8 timepieces on a display rack which consisted of 6 replica Rolex watches, a replica Hublot timepiece, and a counterfeit Audemars Piguet watch, which (if authentic), would amass a total retail value of approximately $218,300.

"It should be noted that the watches that he was selling were of good quality and it would be difficult for an average citizen to tell the difference between the counterfeit watches and a real one," Detective Scott Schaefer stated in the Affidavit. "The watches had all the distinguishing marks that make each respective watch unique to its corporation."

Following the Arrest, Chera confessed to authorities that he had advertised the replica timepieces on Craigslist. Chera, who is facing a Counterfeiting Charge, has posted Bond and will now traverse the expensive and stressful process of being involved in a Case in the Criminal Justice System.

We recommend that people avoid Possession, Buying, Selling, and Manufacturing replica watches.  You can and will face Criminal Charges from your State and the Federal Government as well being sued by the manufacturer.

'Sup fools... fakewatchbusta is bustin fools with fake watches.  We all love Rolex, Omega, Breitling, TAG Heuer, Patek Phlippe, Hublot, Panerai, and other high-end watch brands.  Many of the expensive timepiece brands are counterfeited in the form of "replica watches."  Trafficking in (possessing, buying, selling, and/or manufacturing) watches bearing counterfeit trademarks (such as replica Rolex watches) is a criminal violation of US Federal Law and Laws in most States. It’s also a crime in many other countries. So don’t buy or sell illegal replicas, because sometimes God just facks up your order and you're gonna have to chow down on that shitty shame samwich served up by the Law, fakewatchbusta, horological batman, fake watch ironman, rolex-enforcer, and IP attorneys..  Click on images to read more.

Report all instances of replica timepiece manufacturing, buying, selling, and/or possession as soon as possible (including celebrity posers).  Be on the look out for fake Rolex, Breitling, Omega, Panerai, TAG Heuer, Movado, Patek Philippe, Zenith, Franck Muller, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, and others.

Help us to bust posers stuntin' with fake Rollies; rockin' fake Audemars Piguets, etc.
