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.

Our thanks to Watchfinder for putting this video together!

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
