Welcome to our regular Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we post watch related videos from the web to highlight interesting watches or interesting aspects of watch making. Today, due to stumbling across the first video, I went with a whole theme of videos that explore fake Rolex watches.
Why fake Rolexes? Well, given their position in the market (everyone knows about Rolex, even if they are not in to watches) and how little their watches change over the years, they are a popular target for counterfeiters. Our first video compares a fake and authentic Rolex Datejust II.
Next up, we have a video that shows you the guts of a $10 flea market Rolex Day-Date. This really illustrates two things – if it’s too good to be true, it is, and that when you find something like this, do not be afraid to open it up and modify it a bit.
Next up, we have a fake Rolex Submariner. Unlike the previous video, this one is no longer running, which really would give you carte blanche to open things up and take it all apart – satisfy that curiosity about how they come together!
Last, but not least, we have another real vs. fake comparison, this time for a Rolex Sea Dweller. This one does not get into the guts of the watches, but is a handy comparison, especially if you were looking to pick one of these up.
That’s it for this week’s watch video rewind. If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, drop us a line. If we end up using in the watch video rewind from your suggestion, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
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.
