You don’t buy a Rolex watch every day so you need to be very cautious when you are buying your prized possession. You’ll be amazed to see that fake Rolex watches are available for $25 and some counterfeits are so well made that it is hard to tell if it is a fake. Rolex watches are a symbol of luxury and style possessed by some lucky few, you certainly do not want to be conned while getting your Rolex. There are a few checks to ensure the authenticity of a Rolex.
A genuine Rolex does not tick, the second hand sweeps around the dial in continuous motion. There is a small crown engraved at the 6 o’clock mark, which is not easily noticeable by naked eye. A fake Rolex will have some obvious crown shaped design printed on the dial. Modern Rolex has its model number engraved at the watch end link along with two tiny crowns; a fake will most probably not have these three indicators. Even if it does have they won’t be engraved with precision.
If you find a perfect Rolex watch for $500 then it is for sure a fake, an authentic Rolex watch cannot be priced so low. Be an aware buyer; don’t hesitate to take the jewellers loop along with you so that you can check the engraved markings. A Rolex Watch is generally bought on a special occasion or as a gift for a special someone; do not let swindlers rob you of this happiness.
