    original Swiss watch

    Is there a difference between "real", "genuine" and "original"?
    Example sentence: Don't try to sell me this fake watch. It's definitely not an original Swiss watch. It's a cheap imitation.

    Re: original Swiss watch

    'Original' doesn't work in this context for me. Either 'real' or 'genuine' work in this context.
