In 1847, Horticultural Hall was erected in the Gardens and served as the meeting room for members of the Society. A second series of gardens was established by the City of Halifax in 1867 and in 1874 the gardens were unified into the present 16 acres. The Gardens continue to be an accessible public leisure destination. http://www.halifaxpublicgardens.ca/m_4.asp

So, keep in mind that a fake watch will considerably be lighter than its genuine counterpart. The real watches of this brand use Swiss movement and have a crest logo engraved on its back. The logos tell the real story of a watch. The fake watches are available extensively over the Internet. Not just this brand, you can also find other renowned brand replicas on various sites. One must beware of buying the fake stuff and look for proof purchase by identifying the serial numbers sales associate numbers in order to verify when and where was the watch purchased.
