Rule of Thumbs to Spot Fake Designer Watches - Juragan - 11-22-2010

1. Check the weight of the watch. The expensive materials used on luxury designer watches are heavier than the materials used on counterfeits. If a watch feels even slightly on the lighter side, it typically means the materials are inconsistent. Thus, your watch is likely a fake.

2. Another clever testing is to drop a small splash of water on the face of the watch. If the water smears, it's typically a fake. Sapphire glass or even crystal is used on a majority of luxury timepieces, such as the Rolex or Concord Mariner watches. This glass is waterproof, therefore water dropped on the face should bead, a typical sign of authenticity.

3. The majority of designer watches are made so that a wearer won't hear the ticking, even if they hold the watch up to their ears. So hold the watch up to your ear! If you can hear that second-by-second ticking, you've got yourself a fake.
