How To Spot A Fake Watch
Are you tired of getting ripped of with knock off watches and want to know how to spot a fake watch? If you don't take the time to actually study and research genuine luxury or brand name watches, you can easily purchase a fake without even knowing it. To prevent this from happening to you, you can learn how to spot a fake watch right off the back, so that you won't waste your money.
- Look for the serial number. Fake watches do not have serial numbers, but real watches do. If you can't locate it, you can always ask the retailer for this number. If they are not able to provide you with this number, most likely the watch is a fake. Manufactures and authorized vendors usually always make sure that authentic watches have a serial number.
- Pay close attention to the price of the watch. Real luxury watches are never sold for more than 50% discount off the retail price. Even the best selling and most aggressive dealer will not give a discount for more than this. Be careful if it is a huge discount or they are trying to bargain with you. Also, be aware that luxury watches are never usually sold on clearance during holidays or for end of season sales. A jeweler will not sell their valuable jewelry at high discounts.
- If it is a brand name watch, look for the brand logo. If the watch is real then the brand name or logo will be somewhere on the watch and usually in various places. Look at the logos to make sure they are the real logos and not a fake or knock off. On fake watches, the name of the brand can easily be changed simply by just one letter. The watch may spell "Boby G" instead of spelling "Baby G." Just be careful and look closely at every detail of the watch.
