Each day, someone welcomes me to purchase a deluxe Swiss watch at a portion of the regular rate. OK, so the timepiece in question might not be an authentic Cartier, Rolex, or Patek Philippe; however, according to the spam e-mails that put into my inbox, these counterfeit watches are made to such a high criterion that I would think to invest three or four grands on the real thing.

- Rolex watches are fitted with a sapphire crystal (the glass face of the watch) that can only be damaged with a ruby.
- The “cyclops” date home window in an actual variation is dead centered above the number.
- The quality of the printing on the dial ought to be excellent, with indications, as well as kind equally spaced, as well as no blurry edges.
- The movement of a real Rolex sweeps smoothly rounded at regarding 28,800 revolutions per hour, and each second is broken to eight different steps. Even when counterfeit watch utilizes the motion of the Swiss-made, the hand that indicates seconds ticks usually remains jerky even visually.

In an authentic Rolex, this is made up of numerous dots evaluated different heights throughout the crystal, (so it does not develop a weakness in the glass), and also, and thus is hardly noticeable, to see it clearly you have to check out a loop, the little magnifying glass used by jewelers, as well as watch manufacturers.
