Think You Can Spot The Fake Rolex?

No one brand dominates the watch market quite like Rolex. A Rolex is the corner stone of every luxury watch collection and the name resonates with watch lovers the world over. Here at WatchGang, not only do we send our members a new watch worth up to 5x their membership fee every month, we also send one lucky a member a surprise Rolex every Friday from our live drawing.

Every one of our Rolex watches is sent with a certificate of authenticity and has been 3rd party verified by an expert at Beckertime.

Sadly when you are buying a Rolex either online or in store it isn't always backed with the same provenance. If the price on your dream watch seems too good to be true, it probably is. And when it comes to Rolex, probably the most copied brand in the world, you have to be doubly careful.

So how do you spot the fakes?

Here are a few tips from the experts at Beckertime

  1. The cheapest fakes are easy to spot because of their quartz dial movements. The second hand stutters along inside the counterfeit watch, whereas a real Rolex has a smooth second hand movement

  2. The second way to spot a fake is by the heft of the watch. Fake Rolex watches are generally lighter, whereas a real Rolex is made of high-quality metals, and will weigh significantly more

  3. Usually, fake Rolex watches have rather basic winders to move the minute and hour hands. But a true Rolex will have a finely-crafted winder with engravings and grooves that are quite a work of art

  4. Last but not least, the cyclops lens on the face of the true Rolex will magnify the date. It's hard to replicate, so most counterfeit timepieces will skip this step and the date will appear the same size.

So armed with this knowledge do you think you could spot the fake?


One of the best ways to ensure you are always getting the genuine article is to join a watch club like Watch Gang. We partner with multiple watch brands every month to ensure you always get a new and interesting timepiece. From fashion watches to premium luxury Swiss brands

Watch Gang is changing the way people discover watches at a price never before offered. Every watch is guaranteed to be worth more than you pay!

The club has exploded to become the largest and most loved watch of the month club in the world.

For $29 or $99, Watch Gang ships you a new watch that you KEEP worth up to 5x what you pay. It works a lot like many other monthly clubs where you pay a low membership fee and get products worth more than you paid. Watch Gang is doing things a bit differently, though.
