How to spot a fake Rolex (because it’s harder than you think)
This amazing video shows two Rolexen side-by-side. One is real, one isn’t. The trick? The fake looks almost as good as the real one.
Knock-off manufacturing has gotten amazingly good in the past few years. While most fakes are easy to spot – don’t buy a ROLEKS, for example – it’s clear that this was a pretty impressive fake and well worth a closer look. The scary thing is that the only things that would let a buyer know that this was fake are microscopic. In fact, the easiest way to spot the fake is in the laser-etched crown on the crystal.
Buyer beware, etc.
