Counterfeit Apple Watches Available on Alibaba

Chinese counterfeit manufactures wasted no time making a duplicate Apple Watch (NASDAQ: AAPL), less than a month before its scheduled release, according to The Associated Press. The manufactures list the look-likes on Ablibaba (NYSE: BABA), an Internet marketplace and sell starting at $45.

Alibaba has been under pressure to remove some of the counterfeit materials from their marketplace.
