How to Spot a Replica Rolex Watch

Rolex

Rolex watches which are a well-known status symbol have launched a meaningful counterfeit market. Replicas are often very nice and the differences between the real watch and a perfect replica could be difficult to find out. To show you assistance with this, please pay attention to the following guidelines. Rolex Daytona rolex-078492_03
There are two interesting features on the side of the watch which could be of great help to identify a fake. To begin with, look for the serial and case reference numbers, which will be engraved on the watch’s side. The engraving on a real timepiece will be very good enough, with light reflecting lines. On the contrary, the engraving on a replica watch will be sloppy and etched. Secondly, look for the winder. Fake watches will often have basic winders that move the minute and hour’s hands. The winder of a real Rolex will be finely crafted and include engravings and grooves.
Now, let’s look on the back of the watch: a true Rolex will have a smooth case back with no engravings, logos or markings. If any of the former is present, this is not a real watch. Likewise, Rolex will rarely have a clear see-through back case (the exception being the new Prince model) – if you can see inside of the watch, it’s most likely not real.
A real Rolex has an even, smooth second hand movement; there is no ticking noise. However, a counterfeit will, in contrast, have a stuttering second hand that jerks as it moves and may tick.
Look at the materials of the timepiece. The watch should be made of 24K gold, stainless steel or platinum; it will never be gold plated, chrome, chrome plated or two toned. The quality of the materials used also means that Rolex are normally heavier than other replica watches. If you can, compare the weight of the watch with another fake Rolex Daytona. A true Rolex will weigh significantly more than a replica.
Whilst cheaper pieces are much easier to spot, expensive fakes are often much harder. If you are planning to purchase a Rolex that is over £400 privately, it is a great idea to have a watchmaker or certified appraiser to check the piece over. He or she will be able to remove the back of the timepiece, and verify its inner movements and authenticity.

Do you really need a “Dress replica Watch”?

Sea-Dweller

Versatility is a topic that we get so much of in our watch content these days and brands aren’t ignorant to it. In spite of that, the way you build your collection with a varied set of multiple watches can be meant to “fill in the void”: the diving watch, the pilot watch, the sport chronograph, and so on. However, when you start to think “the dress replica watch,” you may find yourself hitting a roadblock.
Is this the result of shifting styles and the fact that most modern watches also satisfy the aesthetic? In theory, actually this is a watch that should be comfortable and appropriate in settings beyond business-casual. Whether you achieve that with a sub-36mm slim case watch on leather or a diver on links is up to you. Whatever the case may be, the idea of a dedicated dress watch might not work for everyone.
Back when Bond had style, Sean Connery rocked a 6538 Big Crown Rolex Submariner with a white tuxedo while casually timing a barrage of explosives. It’s evidence that sport fake watches had paired with formal attire even in the 60s. Much of that influence still carries on today and even though you might not be an MI6 goon, you’ll still probably get away with wearing a chunky replica Rolex Sea-Dweller at a formal event.  Rolex Sea-Dweller
When you can’t discount dress replica watches altogether, there’s no denying that the versatility of modern sport watches can diminish their appeal. Even brands have caught onto this and have developed “luxury” sport models that bridge the gap between classy elegance and tough “go anywhere, do anything” aesthetics. The newer Zenith El Primero series and the Tudor Black Bay collection of watches are both great examples of this practical design shift.
Besides, when you consider the most traditional traits of a dress watch (time-only white dial and a simple leather strap) you might find you’re not willing to dish out that much for it. Are those really the only features to look for? Once again, that standard has changed and really, you have way more options. Dedicating a large portion of your watch-buying budget to something you might wear once or twice each year just doesn’t make sense. That’s why a great diver, like the Omega Seamaster, works just as well for crashing a wedding as it does for racing Xenia Onatopp in your Aston Martin DB5.
Therefore, if you’ve never understood the need for a dressy piece well, you aren’t alone. And the key point is that you don’t find ways to force replica watches into your collection out of so-called necessity. Pilot watches and dive watches both offer some great options that work well in formal settings. Find what works with your style and tailor your collection to match with your own special taste.
