Expensive Time

American customs officials have used a steamroller to destroy around 7 000 fake Rolex watches- as a warning to other counterfeiters.

The dodgy timepieces, worth millions if real, were seized as part of a counterfeit goods investigation which saw the manufacturer sentenced to six years in federal prison for creating the fakes.  It's believed the man fabricated hundreds of thousands of counterfeit Rolex watches in a Philadelphia factory, which also resulted in him ordered to repay $2 273 000 to Rolex.
