Assuming that you are looking to have a new watch for some special occasion and would like everything to be perfect. How do you go about this? Well, this is simple as getting to isolate a counterfeit watch from a set of similar legitimate watches is very simple. There are however five key metrics that will guide you as you are making a watch selection, allowing you to buy a legitimate watch.
These are: Material, Weight, Type faces and Engravings, Movement and Sound.
- As for the engravings on the watch, you should pay keen attention to the overlay writings on the front as well as the back of the watch. Naturally, original watches have clear and skillfully furnished surfaces as opposed to typical vague writing or smudged inscriptions. Moreover, the other key thing that will tell a fake watch is the incidence of typing errors in the brand name of the watch or some sort of letter substitution. Case in point, having “Roelx” lieu of “Rolex”.
- The other thing that you should be wary of when you are making a selection is the movement and the sound. This is because though some counterfeit watches may actually have a mechanical movement, for instance, the movement may be of very poor quality. Closely tied to the movement aspect is the sound feature in where you should ensure that there is smooth and subtle ticking as opposed to just ticking. As such, if a watch ticks loudly, do away with it.
- Another remarkably important thing to consider is the material used to make the watch. Normally, you should notice that the material used to craft fake watches is somewhat off in terms of the finishing and color. For instance, a watch may appear golden, while in the real sense, it has just been gilded for sale purposes. If you somehow feel that you are not certain of the material, it is paramount that you have the watch hallmarked for its material for your safety.
- Finally, you have to take into account the weight of the watch. Normally, it is anticipated that fake watches should be lighter which you ought to check out for. A good example is a case where you are presented with a gilded watch which is patently lighter than actual gold. This should not prove to be difficult, and you don’t need to know the actual weight of a golden watch. Simple hand scale feature may come in handy, as well as your personal intuition.
Don’t Get Tricked With Fake Ones.
In a nutshell, you don’t have to be a watchmaker or some sort of an apprentice in that field to be able to identify fake watches. It is very easy to learn the art and get to isolate fake watches from legitimate ones. Moreover, you have to know that these are but some of the methods used and it is coaxed that you seek other inherent means of carrying out his process, since the industry of fake watch making is also perfecting its skill, to a point that it would soon adapt to these listed techniques.
