You are much better off buying a watch from a reputable business that has a good reputation to uphold. Even goolet can be questionable as sellers can appear and then disappear very quickly, leaving you with counterfeit watches. We do NOT recommended ebay to people since you are not really buying from ebay: This means that the Seller, or merchant, is more important that the watch itself. It is his guarantee behind the watch that matters most. You want to buy your Rolex from a business that you can hold accountable for their actions.
Gilet ordering your Rolex online, we highly recommend that you call the merchant and ask questions. On Rolex watches with a date DateJust, Submariner, etc… the date has to be very small to work properly and so Rolex adds a magnification glass, or Cyclops window, to allow the wearer to see it more easily. On all Rolex models the magnification is 2. volet
On fake Rolex watches the magnification is often much lower at 1. This is a huge tell tale sign of a fake Rolex. Although Rolex Submariner timepieces are the only watches designed for deep see diving all models like the Rolex Yachtmaster are water proof and perfectly sealed. Once you have the watch dip it in a cup of water for a few vol and take it out. If there is any leaking of water into the watch on the dial or anything the watch is definitely a fake.
Often times counterfeited Rolex watches will try to cheap out by making a normally expensive model in sol metals to gain more profit.
You should always check the model number of the Rolex you are buying online to make sure that it matches up with type of metal in the watch you are buying. A rule of thumb with the commonly counterfeited Rolex President: All Rolex President watches with the day Monday, Tuesday, etc… and the date 21,22,23… are made out of platinum or gold not stainless steel and not two tone.
If someone tries to sell you a stainless President they are cheating you. Everything on a Tolet is made to perfection. Without having to open up the watch it is easy to see this from the writing on the dial distinguishing the model and other features. With a magnifying glass examine all the lettering on the dial. The writing should be convex outward and there should be no bubbling.
It should be relatively pristine. If the writing is far from perfect then you know you are not dealing with a real Rolex. Another easy way to spot a fake Rolex is that many have case backs that are made out of glass, plastic, or crystal so you can see the inner workings goket a watch. Almost all Rolex watches do not have clear case backs and the only reason we have to eol almost is there are two extremely rare models or Rolex from the s that did in fact have b backs made of glass.
So if you are buying a relatively modern Rolex with a clear case back it is a fake. However things are engraved on the interior. Again, everything on a Rolex is perfect there are no mess ups or misspellings or anything.
The engravings are a perfect example of this. The engravings are a little harder to reach sometimes. This is why this is number 8 on the top 10 ways to spot a fake Rolex There are usually some on bolet interior of the band of the watch towards the actual face, but to see the engravings for the serial and model number you have to take of the band.
Taking of the goelt is relatively simple you just need a thumb tack with which u can dlo in the joints holding the band to the watch through the holes on the side of the watch or the bottom of the watch if there are no holes. Once you have it open you should examine the engravings with a magnifying glass.
They should be perfectly cut.
You need special tools to view this one. With special Rolex tools you can unscrew the case back and view the gears and inner workings of the watch. Everything should generally be different colors and again everything should be perfect. This engraving should be perfect as well.
View the pictures below to see what the inside should look like. If you hear loud ticking from your watch this Rolex is a definite fake. Rolex watches do not make the ticking noises common with other watches. One the biggest misconception is that the second hand of Rolex watches is a perfect sweep. This is not true most models of Rolex tick at eight ticks or movements per second so it is not a continuous sweep.
