Rolex SA is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer based in Geneva, Switzerland. Originally founded as Wilsdorf and Davis by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, England in 1905, the company registered Rolex as the brand name of its watches in 1908 and became Rolex Watch Co.
Rolex mostly produced mechanical watches, but it has also participated in the development of the original quartz watch movements. Although Rolex has made very few quartz models for its Oyster line, the company's engineers were instrumental in design and implementation of the technology during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Here are the easy ways to spot a fake Rolex watch
1. Look at the quartz dial movements. The second hand shutters along inside the counterfeit watch, whereas the second hand of a real Rolex has a smooth movement.
2. The Heft. Fake Rolex are generally lighter, whereas a real Rolex will weigh significantly more because it is made of high quality metals.
3. Check the winder on the side. Fake Rolex watches have a basic winder to the minute and the hours hands. But a real Rolex will have a finely crafted winder with engraving and grooves that are quite a work of art, according, to Duggan.
4. The cyclops lens. A real Rolex comes with a cyclops Lens on the face which magnifies that date. It is hard to replicate, so most fake timepieces will skip this step and the date will appear the same size.
If your Rolex have a smooth second hand movement, the cyclops lens, a fine crafted wonder on the side, and has weight. You can assume that you own a real Rolex watch.
