Rolex Watches from HauteLook and Nordstrom
- deceptively offering authentic vintage Rolex watches when, according to plaintiffs, the watches contain non-Rolex parts;
- misleadingly representing that watches are shipped directly from Rolex when, according to plaintiffs, they are shipped from different vendors and jewelry stores;
- misleadingly overstating the value of watches;
- misleadingly representing that watches are being sold at 50%-75% discounts;
- falsely representing that the watches have been appraised when, according to plaintiffs, appraisals are for authentic Rolex watches and not the ones actually shipped; and
- providing photographs of watches that are not the actual ones being sold.
