How to recognize counterfeit watches

This is a topic that will probably never lose its topicality. Whenever there is money involved, there will be attempts to defraud and people who want to sell counterfeit watches. We’re not talking about fake $ 20 Rolexes that can be seen from a kilometer away, but fakes that require some experience to unmask them (or not).

We assume that you know you should be ripped off if someone offers you a Rolex Submariner for $ 1,000; but what about Submariner watches that are only slightly below the average market price? Always make sure you know what you’re buying, especially when it comes to dealers or sellers you don’t know.

All brands from Audemars Piguet to Zenith: All of them are also available as fake versions. The trick is to distinguish the counterfeit from a real watch. In addition to traditional advice such as “buy the seller” and “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” you need other clues to watch out for and to identify a fake.
