4 Ways to Identify a Fake Watch

Designer wristwatches are pretty expensive and not available to the general public. However, some people still want to have a taste of luxury wristwatches. To fill this gap, some wristwatch producers fulfill their dreams by making similar wristwatches with the designers. As such, it's not surprising to see many fake wristwatches.

For individuals who cherish authentic watches, this becomes a problem. No one likes to buy an expensive product only to discover it's fake. It is disheartening and heartbreaking. How do you avoid getting scammed or paying more for less? This article will give you some tips to help you identify a fake wristwatch among thousands of wristwatches.


If the dazzling and sparky Rolex watch is chilling among other wristwatches, there is a high chance that it is not real. Meanwhile, just because the wristwatch is locked up in a glass door doesn't mean it is original. Unless you are confident your seller is affiliated with the wristwatch brand, walk away.


The way your seller displays his watches also matters. If the wristwatches are displayed upside and downward side-by-side, walk away. Designer wristwatches are not placed together in that manner, even if they are of the same brand. 

Go to the store

Unless you are buying your wristwatch from Omega's official site, you should be extra careful. Indeed, pictures tell a lot, but it doesn't apply to second-hand sites. These sites are full of people like yourself, and there is no guarantee that you will get an original. Instead, go there or set up a meeting with the seller. Then, you will get enough details about the watch.

Be intuitive

If the price of the wristwatch sounds too good to be true, then it is. There is nothing to hide these days with the use of the internet. All you need is to google up some images to confirm if your wristwatch is genuine or not or visit the brand's official page to get an idea of their prices. It's also possible that the seller is giving you a discount, but any more than 25% of the market price is fishy.
