How to Identify a Counterfeit Watch

Let’s start with a few typical myths concerning counterfeit watches that might lead you to think that you are purchasing a genuine watch when you are really acquiring a counterfeit.

  • Fake Watches are Lighter than Real Watches

Trash! Counterfeiters today quickly make watches that coincide with weight. How? Well, they are utilizing the same ETA movements as the original makers or second source duplicates. Therefore, weight is no longer an acid test.

  • It’s Not Complicated

You will read that difficulties never work with Rolex counterfeits [นาฬิกาrolexก๊อป, which is the term in Thai]. It is true that in many cases they do not. However numerous luxury watches do not have any kind of difficulties other than the date, which might work with a counterfeit watch. Therefore, the difficulty test is typically not valuable in dividing the counterfeits from the genuine.

  • The Day Bubbles on Counterfeit Rolexes Don’t Amplify Sufficiently

It used to be that the “Cyclops,” the lens over the day on a Rolex did not multiply 2.5 times on a fake Rolex. That is not so hard to counterfeit any longer. I have seen numerous fake Rolex watches with the appropriate zoom. I would not depend on that as a base test.

  • A Genuine Motion Way A Genuine Watch

Have you heard that motions on counterfeit watches are never the same? How incorrect that is. Many watch brand names today acquire their motions from ETA, the world’s largest supplier of mechanical motions. The counterfeiters can get Japanese or Chineserecreations or real ETA movements from second resources.

  • Don’t Look A Present Steed In The Mouth

There is no such thing as a free lunch, right? The conventional knowledge is that presents of high-end watches are fakes. Well, this might be close to the reality. However actual watches are inherited as well as marketed. If all of us walk around junking inheritance gifts, it might be a costly error. This is hardly a definitive examination for telling real ones from counterfeits.
