You are a man among men. You command respect. People admire you for the things you do. A man that desires and gets nothing but the best should have the best timepiece ever made.
If you are in the market for a Rolex watch, you want to be sure you are buying the real thing. The Rolex brand of watches is the most copied watch in the world, some using very advanced counterfeit methods. One thing to consider is that if it sounds too good to be true, or is a once-in-a-lifetime offer, it is probably a fake.
The best thing you can do to determine Men Watches authenticity is to take the watch to a qualified jeweler or watchmaker that has a specialty in Rolex watches or Rolex repair. In addition, there are some obvious signs you can look out for to help save you some time. Most Rolex watches have very fine mechanical movements that allow the second hand to glide around the dial without noticeable ticks. Keep in mind that counterfeiters know this as well and have found ways to duplicate this.
The next step is to remove the watch band and between the lugs at the twelve position you should see a registered design number. Also, between the lugs at the six positions, you should see the case’s serial number. If either of these numbers is missing, it is a fake.
Some fake Rolexes have a glass crystal on the underside of the watch that allows you to see the watch’s movement. While very cool, this trait is not Rolex.
With all the hype about Rolex watches, there has been a surge in the replica Rolex industry. There aren’t many days that go by without a few spam emails in my inbox trying to get me to buy a fake Rolex or other Swiss-made replica luxury watch.
This article was written to help guys like you purchase the Rolex watch that you’ve been wanting and just haven’t had the time to research enough to know you’re not getting scammed. Rolex dealers, master watchmakers, and fake makers have provided us with helpful tips that could save you both big bucks and big heartaches.
- Only an authorized dealer can sell a brand-new Rolex watch with a factory warranty. There are no exceptions to this!
- Straight bands are good bands and kinked bands are bad. First off, if the bracelet doesn’t match the watch, move on down to the next dealer. The bracelet can tell you whether that Men Rolex Watches are real or fake. Pick up the watch and hold it over a soft surface with the watch facing down. Look at the links in the bracelet. Are they hanging nice and smooth or are they all kinked up? Those bracelet links may stretch a bit over time, but they just don’t kink. If the bracelet is kinked, it’s probably a fake.
- One of the most telling aspects of Rolex fakes is that the second hand “ticks” second by second around the dial instead of running smoothly as it would on a real Rolex watch.
- Another notable feature of a genuine Rolex is the bubble-like date window that magnifies the date on the GMT, Submariner, and other models. If the date number appearing in that window or the magnifying bubble itself is crooked or a little off-center, you are looking at a fake.
- Genuine Rolex timepieces have a Hologram-encoded sticker on the back of the watch. There is a reference number unique to the watch and above is a hologram Rolex crown logo. While fake Rolexes might have stickers on the back, they’re usually not true holograms and don’t change appearance when rotated or viewed from different angles.
