As a sequel to my previous blog about the distinction between a real replica Rolex and a forgery, I explain in this blog more features that you can recognize if you are dealing with an original fake Rolex or a forgery.
Years ago it was easier to distinguish a non-original Rolex from an original fake Rolex. Unfortunately, the counterfeiters ‘perfect’ themselves, making the details more and more difficult to distinguish. The more important it is to observe the very small differences. Rolex is a watch of the details. Swiss craftsmanship with years of experience. This makes it impossible to replicate a Rolex watch 1 on 1. Below I explain a number of details to which you can recognize whether it is an original fake Rolex.
The tick sound and second hand.
Almost every replica Rolex is a mechanical replica watch with an automatic movement, with the exception of a number of quartz models, such as the Oysterquartz. If the second hand of a Rolex shifts abruptly from the second position to the next, then you are probably dealing with a counterfeit replica Rolex. Also, it is audible, if you hear a slowly loud ticking sound then it is most likely a quartz movement and therefore no original replica Rolex. A Rolex ticking with a much higher frequency, up to 10 times within a second. A real Rolex makes a soft and fast ticking sound. Please note that nowadays there are imitation replica Rolex watches with an automatic movement, with a soft and fast tapping sound.
A real fake Rolex is made of high quality metals, think of steel, gold or even platinum. By using high quality metals, a Rolex sits firmly and comfortably on the wrist. A real pleasure to wear one. These metals also provide a certain weight. A fake Rolex is relatively heavy. If a “replica Rolex” feels rather light, then chances are that you are dealing with a forgery.
A good way to check whether it is an original replica Rolex. Is to compare it with an original. On the website of Rolex, or on other watch related websites often detailed photos. Zoom in on the photos and compare whether the details match. Miss certain details or do not match. Then there is a good chance that you are dealing with a forgery.
