HOW TO SPOT A FAKE ROLEX LIKE AN EXPERT

 

Rolex is regarded as the Best Luxury Watch Brand globally and it is also one of the most sought-after brands. However, with high demand also comes a world of fake watches that try to fool you into believing they are the real thing.

Learn to identify a fake Rolex to save your money and yourself. Following are some suggestions for shopping.


  • The Hands. Put the watch up to your ear and pay special attention to the sounds it makes if you can't distinguish the motions with your naked eye. The second hand of a genuine Rolex will be nearly silent, in contrast to the stuttering second hand, which will produce a tiny ticking sound as it moves.
  •  

  • The Weight. Since high-quality metals are used to make genuine Rolexes, they are not lightweight. If the watch is lightweight in your hand, it was probably made of inferior metal and is a fake.
  •  

  • The Crown.  A fake Rolex watch's crown is another obvious giveaway. The craftsmanship on a genuine Rolex is impeccable. This means that every component of the watch, down to the little metal crown on the side, is intricately designed and precisely measured. A smooth crown, a watch that seems basic or brushed over, or any of these things are warning signs. Because the pieces were assembled from multiple sources and the metal was of a lower quality than that of a genuine Rolex, you'll note that the crowns of many imitation Rolex watches lack the fine detailing that you'd see on an authentic Rolex.
  •  

  • The Crystal. Simply running your finger over the crystal glass will reveal the answer. You can tell you have a genuine watch if the lens over the date feels bumpy. It is a red flag that your watch is phony if the cyclops is flat. The date's number will appear larger due to the lens's magnification. The date frame is 2.5 times larger thanks to the cyclops. Another red flag is if your date is not magnified or does not appear to be magnified significantly. 
  •  

  • Model & Serial Numbers. Each Rolex watch is identified by a serial and model number, which may be found on the inside of the watch on the six o'clock side for more recent models and between the lugs for earlier models. It's crucial to comprehend the specifics in order to recognize a fake because many counterfeit products will have serial and model number that looks just like those on a Rolex. The numbers on a genuine Rolex watch will be sharply visible and deeply carved in the metal. A stamp that seems a touch messier is indicative of a fake Rolex. The lines won't be as straight. In actuality, as opposed to using a single stamp, the imprint will probably appear to have been created using a number of tiny dots or etchings. The imitation Rolex mark will frequently appear blurry.  
  •  

  • The Rolex Logo. One of the clearest signs of a Rolex is the crown emblem, which is always positioned at the top of the dial on genuine watches. Although most fake watches would also have this branding feature, it would almost probably not be positioned as exactly as it is on an original watch. As a result, your used watch is probably a fake if the Rolex emblem has any imperfections, such as obvious glue traces or misalignment.
  •  

  • The Case Back. All genuine Rolex watches have a smooth metal case back, with the  exception of the Rolex Sea-Dweller and a few older pieces made in the 1930s. The watch is a replica Rolex if the back is clear. The watch case's rear should be polished smoothly and elegantly, according to Rolex. There is no see-through glass used in that particular area as a result. A genuine Rolex watch has an incredibly smooth finish.  
  •  

  • The Face. The writing on the face of the watch should adhere to the strictest Rolex  requirements. An unclean, bubbling, and incorrectly spaced writing can be seen on a fake Rolex. Look at the entire text very carefully. This is how you can determine whether or not the watch is fake. Also, if anything seems out of the ordinary, such as a tiny bit of glue residue in the corner of an hour marker or a slightly out-of-place baton, you can be certain that this specific piece has not been put through rigorous quality assurance procedures at Rolex and it is most certainly a fake.
  •  

  • The Price. If the price seems too good to be true, the watch being sold to you is definitely a fake. Because Rolex uses only the highest caliber watch components, it cannot be purchased for a low cost.  
  •  

  •  The Movement. When it comes to the watch's internal components, it is difficult to tell if a Rolex watch is authentic or fake without opening the case, and this requires the assistance of a watch professional.  
  •  

  • The Band. Every Rolex watch is substantial rather than lightweight since the company only uses the finest metals. If the band feels flimsy to you, it is probably fake. They don't feel as sturdy and substantial as genuine Rolex bands, though this is harder to detect at first. The crown should have crisp edges and distinct lines, however, the crown on fake watches typically lacks these features and is of inferior quality. 
  •  

  • The Seller. The seller’s reputation is a very important consideration when buying a Rolex watch. From an online seller, check the reviews and the number of reviews. Is the seller registered with a government or national body? Do they have a phone number and email address where you can reach them even after you purchase the watch? Do they offer a warranty? With the required expertise, technical know-how, and specialized tools, we at Luxuriant Concierge ensure the authenticity of every component of your Rolex watch and assist you in making a decision that will last a lifetime. 
  •  

    Be wise. Be not fooled. Buy from a reliable and respectable seller.
