How do you distinguish a real replica Rolex from a forgery

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.

The weight

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.


Do you have a “Rolex” and you are not sure if it is an original. Then visit an expert, such as a jeweler. They often have years of experience with replica watches such as fake Rolex and can give you a quick answer.

The replica watch brand Rolex

Rolex watches stand for absolute luxury and exclusivity. The brand has been one of the most famous producers of luxury replica watches for both men and women for years.

The men’s watches from Rolex are of the highest quality and have a classic appearance. These timepieces have become a status symbol thanks to their exclusivity, durability and of course the high price.

The Rolex ladies watches are just like the counterpart for the man exclusive timepieces with a beautiful elegant and classic look. The company fake Rolex was founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and that means that Rolex has more than 100 years of experience in making the most beautiful watches.

This man Wilsdorf, invented the perpetual clock, a clockwork that was automatically wound by the movement of the wrist. To this day, several replica watch brands use this technology.

In 1926 Rolex developed a truly waterproof watch. To prove that this cabinet was really waterproof, the channel was swept over by someone with a Rolex watch. Later the Oyster Rolex watch was even attached to a submarine and at 11 kilometers depth it appeared that the closet was still waterproof.

During the Second World War the German brand moved to Switzerland where it concentrated on expensive replica watches. Rolex made these timepieces with the most beautiful materials. For example, gold silver or platinum was often used and the dial was sometimes made of mother-of-pearl. Regularly diamonds were used in the development of Rolex watches that only enhanced the exclusive and luxurious character of these clocks.

Rolex developed many functions for the replica  watch that we still see today with almost all timepieces. In Rolex in 1946, for example, a watch was developed that could give the date: The Rolex Datejust. The Cosmograph Daytona was the first clock of the brand with built-in stopwatch that could give hours, minutes and seconds.

To this day, Rolex is a popular luxury replica watch brand and the first models are still sold well today. More and more counterfeit timepieces have come into circulation from Asia, these clocks are less durable and the quality is of course much lower. There is of course nothing against an original Rolex watch, the status symbol of luxury and style.


Countdown to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in 2018 in Rio de Janeiro reached an important milestone: exactly in a hundred days the attention of the whole world will be riveted to the most anticipated and well-known sporting event that will take place in Latin America for the first time.
Model Speedmaster Mark II «Rio 2018» – a tribute to the Olympic Games in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. The watch perfectly conveys the emotion and breathtaking spirit of this stunning event, which will unite more than 200 countries around the world. The unique dial of the chronograph reminds of the sense of glory and triumph that will be felt by the best athletes of the world who have risen on the podium.
Based on the model of the first replica OMEGA Speedmaster Mark II model of 1969, this watch has a barrel-shaped casing made of polished and satin-finished stainless steel with polished buttons and a crown. Under the flat, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, there is a matt black dial with a 30-minute counter at the “3 o’clock” position, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and a small second dial at 9 o’clock. The counters are decorated with a bronze ring, a ring of 18-carat yellow gold and a ring of 925 silver, respectively – this design resembles medals that are awarded to the champions of the Olympic Games.

The transparent tachymetric scale on the sapphire crystal is illuminated from below by an aluminum ring with the phosphor Super-LumiNova. The composition of Super-LumiNova is also applied to the hour and minute hands, the chronograph hand and the hour markers, which allows you to see the time at varying degrees of illumination. Speedmaster Mark II is the first watch in the OMEGA collection, allowing the wearer to see the tachymetric scale in the dark.
The logo of the Olympic Games 2016 is stamped on the back cover, and the inscriptions “Si14”, “Column Wheel” and a unique number of watches in the limited edition were engraved – only 2016 copies of this model were made.
The polished and satin bracelet made of stainless steel is made using the “screw-rod” system patented by OMEGA and is complemented by a folding push-button frame buckle. The length of the bracelet can be adjusted by opening the outer fastener and moving the inner buckle.
