The difference between the replicas and genuine ones?

By | March 2, 2016

In recent day, I frequently was invited to buy a so-called genuine Swiss watch with a surprising low price. There is no doubt that, in terms of those high-end replica watches, whether it is real or not is in question, no matter Rolex or Patek Philippe. However, latter I found out in my email box, according to those spam mails, that the outside looking of these watch replicas are amazingly and seems unmistakable. Replicas with such high level of making that I may pay much more for a new one make me attracted.
Strikingly similar- tell me which one of the Rolex Submariner is genuine?
1. Rolex replica watches are fitted with a sapphire crystal (the glass face of the watch) that can only be scratched with a diamond.
2. The number is under the ‘cyclops’ date window in real ones.
3. The quality of the printing on the dial is supposed to be perfect, with indicators and category evenly spaced and no fuzzy edges.
4. The genuine Rolex movement sweeps easily round at about 28,800 revs per hour – for each second is divided into eight steps. Even when a fake uses a Swiss-made movement, the second hand’s ticking is quite visibly unstable.
5. The brand’s logo is laser-etched into the crystal over where ‘Swiss made’ appears. In a genuine Rolex, this is made up of hundreds of dots set at different heights throughout the crystal (so it doesn’t create a weakness in the glass) and as such is barely visible – if you want to have a clear look, you have to look through a loupe (it is very often to be seen in the shop of jewels and watches).
6. The watch’s case number and model number would be displayed after the removing of the Rolex bracelet.
In the old days, counterfeit Rolexes were so poorly made that not even a blind chimp would mistake one for the real thing. They conferred upon the wearer an aura of tacky desperation, not cool. In recent, things become much different. The old tell-tale giveaways – sloppy printing, soft metal and cheap quartz movements that made the second hand clunk its way round the dial – have been eradicated.
Good fakes feel substantial, accurate timekeeping and high quality of watch dial. Someone even told that the only way to reveal they are not genuine is to flash back. The majority of replicas now uses proper mechanical movements and sometimes boasts transparent ‘exhibition’ backs so you can see the wonders of horology for yourself. Even the word ‘replica’ suggests that the product you’re buying is legal-ish – a ‘tribute’ to the original rather than a blatant rip-off.
Certainly, with those delicate improvements, the price tag of replica watches would be higher than before. It just like that when you go supermarkets, you would find some products with the name of the supermarket, it’s their ‘own brand’ goods. Though these goods have the same quality with some famous ones, they are not that greedy to charge a sky-high price.
