If you think that nothing hurts more than a breakup, you’ve never had to pay the full original price of a watch and see it turn out to be a fake one. It’s worse than a heartbreak, especially for a watch enthusiast. Unfortunately, there are way too many sellers out there who sell fake watches in the name of real ones and since we know what it feels like, Replica Review listed for you the top five differences between genuine and fake watches so that you can watch out for yourself the next time!
Look out for the ticking noise
Fake watches tick, real watches don’t. High-end companies prepare their watches while giving attention to all the small details. Therefore, their watches won’t make the ticking noise that can normally be heard when you put a fake watch’s dial or case-back to your ears.
Pay close attention to the logo
Fake watches usually do not have a flawless logo like the genuine ones do. Check for spelling mistakes, font mistakes or spacing mistakes in the logo of the watch. While you’re at it, also check the font of the numbers on the dial. You can look up the original watch on the internet to see how it should actually look like and then compare.
Check the exact weight of the watch
The weight of fake watches is usually lighter than the weight of the real ones. You should look up the weight of the genuine watch that you want to buy and then compare it to the weight of the watch you’re purchasing. If it’s significantly different, the watch is fake.
Check for imprints
Real watches usually have several imprints of their logos in several areas. Research where the imprints of your watch are placed online and then see if all of them are in place on the watch.
Authenticate the serial number of the watch
Each watch has a specific serial number. The font and printing of the serial number can tell you if the watch is real or fake.
