How can I learn more about the fake watch industry?

I'm living in Manila at the moment, and there are shopping centres dedicated to selling counterfeit products. Seeing the quality of these, and friends who have picked up a fake Tag/Omega/Rolex watch and have them for quite a long time has made me wonder about the industry.
I saw this excellent FPP
which made me wonder about who designes and makes these fakes, what are the conditions they are assembled in, how is the money sent back and forth without attracting attention and so on.
I've googled but just found lots of "anti fake" ads from Swiss manufacturors, not much detail into the background of how/where they are made.
