  2. 2. Many people are buying and selling Rolex and other fine timepieces over the internet. Having a resource to clarify this information can mean the difference between making a wise investment in a quality timepiece, and overpaying for something that was misrepresented. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches. Rolex is a trademark of 'Rolex USA'. Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178
  3. 3. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches. Rolex is a trademark of 'Rolex USA'. Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Clear Case back – As previously mentioned, my “Rolex” features a clear backing so the inner workings of the watch are on display. A few mechanical components inside even display the signature crown to appear more impressive. This is perhaps the easiest to recognize feature of a counterfeit watch, because Rolex has never made a watch with a “skeleton case back”.                                       
  4. 4. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches. Rolex is a trademark of 'Rolex USA'. Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Cyclops Magnification Bubble – The crystal on authentic Rolex watches features a “Cyclops bubble” that offers 2.5 times magnification of the date. On fake Rolex watches, this bubble is often off-center or made of glass, and usually approaches only 1.5 times the magnification.
  5. 5. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches. Rolex is a trademark of 'Rolex USA'. Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Micro-etched Crystal – Fakes will try to match the micro-etched Rolex logo that has become standard on genuine watches made after 2002. Rolex began micro-etching their coronet symbol into the crystal just below the 6 o’clock position. The mark is so small, it is often difficult to see with the naked eye, but can be identified under magnification. The detail is so precise that counterfeit models often cannot replicate the logo accurately.

Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Hologram Sticker – Forgeries will attempt to re-create the hologram sticker that comes on all Rolex case backs. The sticker features a hologram of the Rolex Crown positioned just above the case reference number. Most forgeries are not hologram stickers at all, but simply patterns that do not change when viewed from different angles.                             
  7. 7. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches.

Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Triplock Crown Seal – The Daytona, Submariner, and Sea-Dweller models feature an extra seal between the winding tube’s threads. Many replicas will completely leave this feature off or possess a fake seal that serves no practical purpose.                                   
  8. 8. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches.

All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Size and Weight – although it is not the most scientific method for determining a fake, it should be noted that authentic Rolex watches are very sturdy and therefore relatively heavy. Fake watches are made from cheaper materials and typically feel very light. Also, the bands on genuine Rolex watches are full whereas fakes often display hollow links.
  9. 9. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches. Rolex is a trademark of 'Rolex USA'. Rolex Day Date, Rolex President, Rolex GMT Master, Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, Rolex PearlMaster, Rolex Masterpiece, Rolex Super President, Rolex Submariner, Rolex Yacht-Master, Rolex Explorer and Rolex Sea Dweller are all trademarks of Rolex S.A. All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Hand Movement – The second hand on a genuine Rolex watch features a smooth and continuous movement that often cannot be duplicated by fake watches. Their movements are often in small, jerky increments.                                               
  10. 10. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches.

All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 Sapphire Composition –Many faux-Rolexes will use regular glass instead of true sapphire crystal. A good test of the materials is to check the water surface tension. A smeared film of water will pull together on sapphire due to the extremely smooth surface. Lettering – Be sure to check the dial of your potential purchase to see if the lettering is precise. Under high-magnification, the type should reveal clean edges not found in many forgeries.
  11. 11. *Please note that the 'RolexDoctor.net' is in no way affiliated with or related to Rolex USA, Rolex S.A., Rolex International, Breitling, or Patek Philippe luxury watches.

All trademarked names, brands, models and designs mentioned herein are the sole property of their respective manufacturer. Toll Free 866.999.9178 The name Rolex has become synonymous with success and style, and it would be a shame for anyone to be suckered into paying premium prices for a forgery. Trusting a reputable dealer is the best way to obtain a genuine Rolex. Do the research, ask questions, and remember if it looks too good to be true…it probably is.
