6 Unique Ways To Identify Real Rolex Watches
If you have ever gone out and tried to purchase Rolex watches, then you probably have come into contact with several imitations.
Rolex Watches and other expensive watches are a target for copiers and people trying to pass them off as genuine. Pawn shops have had to learn how to tell if it is real or fake by studying the real thing. There are several ways to identify a real Rolex watch vs. a fake Rolex watch.
Look at the Price
Real Rolex watches are an expensive investment. To buy a Rolex watch you can expect to pay literally thousands of dollars. Should you run across a luxury watch being sold for a few hundred dollars it most likely is a fake. If you are in the market for a Rolex watch, be sure to buy it from a dealer that sells the real thing. Unfortunately there are many who sell Rolex online that have discounted the price to lure buyers into buying a fake.
Check the Merchandise
To find a real Rolex it pays to know what to look for.
- Look for a hologram sticker on the back of the watch. A fake Rolex may have the sticker, but it will not be a hologram.
- The weight of the watch is a dead giveaway. Rolex watches weigh more than a fake.
- A real Rolex makes no sound minus the Quartz edition, which does make a ticking sound.
- Look at the numbers and notice the clear Rolex crown near the number six. If the crown is missing, then it is not real.
- Real Rolex watches will be engraved with clear, precise lines where fakes will have a stamp on the back or the engraving will be sloppy.
- The real thing will have a cover made of crystal and the water test will show beaded water on the cover.
If you are looking to sell or pawn your Rolex online, be sure to list the watch for what it really is. Be sure to describe and take pictures for people to see it online. Anyone who is serious about buying a real Rolex will want to see that the watch is 100% real and authentic.
