The weight

The English say, "if it feels light, it isn't right." A genuine Rolex is made of high-quality materials, which feel heavy. A fake one uses cheaper and much lighter materials. Therefore, this too is a good guess whether your Rolex is genuine.

The magnified date

A genuine Rolex always has a magnifying glass for the date, it is always magnified exactly 2.5X.

So a too-small date notation is a mostly replica Rolex.


A genuine Rolex is made with great precision, with a fake watch less time is spent on refinement. Do you hear the watch ticking loudly? Unfortunately, you probably have a counterfeit.

The letters

Finally, the letters are also placed with the utmost care. Do you see any unevenness? That too points to a counterfeit watch, at Rolex itself, this is spot on.  Also look closely at, for example, the Datejust or Daydate at the letters on the edge along the dial, are they engraved tightly?

Of course, there are many other ways to verify whether or not you have an authentic Rolex in your hands. Today, replicas are of such high quality that it is difficult to distinguish them from the real thing without using a magnifying glass or analyzing the inner workings.
