Rolex Watches Guide & Replica Jewelry: From Yachtmaster to Ladies Rolex Watches
The amatory-watches replica and Jewellery replica guide will help you navigate the online fake Rolex watches business. If you’re able to tell fake Rolex watches from the real ones you’ll be able to find high quality replicas and avoid getting deceived by an opportunist vendor who’s selling shabby hardware and calling it Rolex.
Know this first of all: Genuine men’s or lady’s Rolex watches, whether it’s a Yachtmaster, Submariner, Daytona or whatever, are only available on the Rolex site and through authorized vendors. So if you come across a vendor online claiming to sell authentic ladies Rolex watches, or, for instance, a private seller on E-bay who says they’ve got a real Rolex Yachtmaster that they’re hoping to sell for five hundred bucks, be weary. Be very weary.
Good fake Rolex sites allow no mystery surrounding their products. A replica is a replica. It’s an entirely different market. If you’re looking to buy one, then be sure to buy it from a vendor who’s honest about what it is.
The idea behind a good replica is that no one can tell the difference between it and a fake. If you’re on this site we’re confident that’s what you’re after: Fake Rolex watches that look, feel, and work like originals. Read the info below and you’ll be able to decipher the high quality from the low one.
What Does a Top Quality Japanese Replica Entail?
The average person may be fooled by replicas that lack some of the more detailed markings of a genuine designer watch. Collectors; however, and those accustomed to seeing the originals will easily reveal your watch as a fake if the fine details differ from the original. A genuine grade one replica will always have the exact markings of the original. There are too many specific markings on the thousands of replicated watches out there to go into detail about each one. It is always up to you to research the particular watch you are interested in. What follows is a guide to the most common engravings that will help you distinguish cheap from quality replicas.
The first thing you need to watch for here are markings and engravings on replica watches that aren't actually on the original model. For instance, apart from a few special edition exceptions, Rolex does not engrave the rear case of their watches. Genuine Rolex watches are either: solid and unmarked, or have a green hologram sticker on the rear case that displays the Rolex logo and serial number. Watch for green stickers that are not holograms. Also look out for cheap replicas with engraved rear cases like these below:
Another common giveaway is a see-through rear case, called a skeleton case that allows you to see the watch’s movement. Rolex has not to date made a watch with a transparent rear case:
Pay attention; however, because some other commonly replicated watch dealers do make watches with engraved or see-through rear cases. For instance, amatorystore.com carries the Omega Speedmaster pictured below. A common mark of Omega and Breitling watches is an engraved picture and serial number on the rear case.
The Audemars Piguet Jules model pictured below is an example of a watch with a transparent back. Always find out what the rear case should look like before purchasing a replica.
Case, Crown, Dial and Bracelet Engravings:
The Bracelet and Case
All genuine Grade One replica Rolexes will have a Rolex crown logo engraved on the clasp and a laser-etched Rolex crown on the crystal at the 6 o’clock whenever the original model does.
Many of the watch models with stainless steel bracelets have specific engravings on the bracelet clasp. On Omega stainless steel models the clasp is always engraved with the Omega logo. The Rolex crown logo is engraved on the clasp of many Rolex models such as the Daytona below. Ensure that this marking is on the watch you purchase.
The crown is the knob used to set the time on a watch. The crown of a Rolex watch will either have the Rolex crown engraved or a jewel set directly into it. Rolex uses a one piece crown with the Rolex logo at the end. On a cheap replica the logo is glued on after the watch is made. This creates a visible seam between the crown and the glued cap. Current Rolex watches have three dots below the emblem on the crown indicating triple-lock capability. On some cheap replica the dots are missing as seen below:

Most Audemars Piguet models have the AP logo engraved into the crown. The lack of this marking will easily give away a fake:
The dial is the most prominent aspect of the watch; as such, replica dealers will put the most effort into making theirs look like the original. Still, the quality of dial appearance and functions on different grades of replica will differ tremendously. Don’t be fooled, the dial is the first thing you should examine. The way to decipher quality from cheap replica here is in the materials used and fine details. Is the colour of the dial exact to the original? Is the font of the date display exact?
For instance, the numbers in the date bubble of a Rolex should be exactly in the centre of the magnified Cyclops lens. On virtually all replicas the date will either be high or low in the date window:

Are the hour markers correctly positioned, sized, and styled? Cheap replica dealers will sometimes substitute components like this with materials from a different watch model to save money, or they just haven’t done their research. The Daytona in the cheap replica picture below has hands from a Day-Date model, which are flat on the tip rather than rounded:

Look on other sites to find out what the dial should look like. Check also for embossments and logos that should be on the watch face.
The length of the hands on a Rolex watch should reach the seconds markers. On many replicas it is short by 2-3mm. Also, the illuminated circle on the second hand should hit the top of the12 o’clock triangle exactly.
There are Swiss, Japanese, and Asian grades of mechanisms as well as automatic and quartz movement. Consider the mechanism as you would the engine of a car; it is what’s under the hood that counts.
There are a handful of grades of movement; Swiss ETA is the best and Japanese is second. Grade One Japanese Replica will have a genuine Japan-made Miyota 21-jewel automatic movement. The watches are either assembled in Japan or shipped to another part of Asia for assembly, but the watch mechanism is always Japanese. This is a 21-jewel automatic movement system. Beware of claims of 31 jewel or 33 jewel movement. It does not exist, and if it does it is not genuine Miyota.
The amount of jewels in the movement refers to the microscopic increments in the gear that spins the watch hands. More jewels means a smoother motion. (Think like pixels in a computer image). Miyota movement creates a smooth sweeping second hand with no stop/start or tick-tick movement. The increments (like pixels) should be invisible far beyond the scope of the human eye.
Another aspect of genuine Miyota movement is the hacking mechanism. What it does is when the crown is pulled out to set/adjust the time, the second hand stops moving. If the second hand keeps moving the watch does not have the hacking mechanism like the original.
You can make your own judgments quite easily when it comes to materials using common sense. For instance, will a solid gold watch be on sale for $200? Never! Is it possible to make a fantastic replica using thick plated 18k gold? Yes it is, in fact many of the authentic designer watches are actually made using triple wrapped gold. Materials more than anything affect the price of the watch. How important it is to you to have the real thing will help you decide which grade of watch replica you want.
Your primary considerations when it comes to materials are how they affect the weight, appearance and durability of the watch. Don’t forget that a good replica weighs exactly what the original does.
Gold: Things to consider when buying a gold watch are the colour, weight, and whether it is plated, solid, or triple wrapped. As well, be aware that particularly Rolex and Cartier often use pink hued gold, or the common yellow gold. A faded gold will virtually render the watch un-wearable. Gold Grade One replica watches are thick plated 18k gold which means the gold is 100% real and thick enough that it will not fade off.
Two-tone refers to models with integrated stainless steel and gold bracelets. Two-tone Grade One replicas require less gold and; thus, should be a thick and solid 18k gold plating and solid stainless steel. All full gold models are plated 18k gold. Remember that a solid gold watch would cost thousands of dollars to manufacture, and even luxury watch designers generally use triple wrapped gold unless it is a $25 to $50 000 special model they are selling. Be careful of retailers claiming to sell solid gold watches. It is a lie, is impossible, and reveals their dishonesty.
Solid stainless steel Grade One replicas are durable industrial grade stainless steel. This is forged steel that is a durable, weighted material. Lower grade steel will not have the exact weight and durability of the originals. Only forged top quality steel is virtually.
The first giveaway here is the weight. The density of the metal is what determines its quality. It is quite possible to make an excellent replica of exact weight and strength using industrial grade stainless steel. On the cheaper end some companies may use alloys (mixed metals) which can really affect the strength and appearance of the bracelet. Look for bracelets with too much shine, or conversely, are too dull looking. Besides appearance, a more malleable, weak, metal will easily dent or scratch, and will be too lightweight. Some retailers will sell plated stainless steel that is sort of stuffed with weights and cheaper metals. If you are paying for a Grade One replica you shouldn’t accept this. It has to be solid stainless steel.
A common shortcut taken by Rolex replica dealers is to use pins as links on the bracelet instead of threaded screws like the originals. This is extremely important, not only will it give away the fake immediately, it makes adjusting the bracelet size a terrible hassle. Genuine Japanese replicas have the exact threaded screws as Rolex. The screws can be easily removed and adjusted. Pins are a dead giveaway for cheap watches.
The crystal is the dome over the face of the watch. The consideration here is whether or not it is genuine sapphire crystal or if it is mineral crystal, a similar but duller and weaker glass. A very cheap replica may have standard glass or even plastic. Sapphire crystal has a hardness rating only slightly less than diamond. It is an exceptionally strong glass used by all the designer watchmakers and genuine Swiss and Japanese replica dealers. The reason is that it is scratch proof, impeccably clear and glare resistant. When you first receive your watch take it into a jeweller to ask if it is sapphire crystal. Mineral crystal is a lower grade of essentially the same thing and many mid-grade replicas are made with it. It is a question of degrees again; the originals are made with sapphire crystal, so a top quality replica will be to. The important thing is that you know what you are buying. If you expect the best then choose sapphire crystal.
You will need to familiarize yourself with the special features of the watch model you are purchasing. You want to ensure that your replica will not only look exactly like the original, but that it has all the same functions.
Chronographs/ Tachometer Functions
Many sport and professional models of designer watches have chronograph functions. Particularly Omega, Breitling and Rolex have developed very precise and complicated mechanisms for simultaneous time keeping. The original Rolex Daytona, for instance, has 3 chronographs on the dial which measure distinct time intervals. A quality replica with genuine automatic Swiss movement will have the correct functioning chronographs. Before you purchase a watch, inquire. Usually Japanese replicas do not have the chronometer function, it is just for show.
Keep in mind that with specific professional models, like Breitling, Panerai, and Omega produces, that are tested for use in deep ocean diving and trips to outer space, you will not find a replica anywhere with those same capabilities. An honest dealer will be up front about the functions of their watches. After all, not many of us are out there buying replicas for trips to the moon. A Japanese replica will have highly advanced functions for everyday use. Again, as with these claims of solid gold replica watches, be realistic, and look out for dealers with outrageous claims. If they say their watch will work in orbit, it’s just that they know you won’t be going out there.
Luminox is the Rolex name for self-luminescent or glow-in-the-dark hour markers. It comes from the Luminor technology developed by Panerai for high visibility in underwater darkness. Mostly every Panerai model and certain Rolex models will have a Luminor or Luminox dial which will glow an iridescent green in the dark. In most cases Panerai has Luminor in the name of the watch model. Often you can tell by the pictures on the site, that is if quality pictures are available, whether or not a specific replica dealer has luminescent dials.
Many Rolex models have a magnification device over the date called a ‘Cyclops’ lens. This small lens makes the date easier to view at a glance. Due to the depth of the face from the crystal or poor magnification, some replica watches don’t show a true 2.5x magnification. On a real Rolex and a quality Japanese replica the date should nearly fill the Cyclops lens.
The Cyclops will also have a sharp edge where it meets the sapphire crystal. This is hard to see with the naked eye but can be felt quite easily by running your fingers over the lens.

When you put on a top quality replica watch no one should be able to tell it is not real. If it can fool the watchmaker it’s a good replica. This means that every component needs to be exact in feel, weight, and appearance. Before making the investment you should follow the information above. Inform yourself, contact the company, do some online research. The company claims should above all be realistic. If you are informed you will be able to see through outrageous claims. Remember to take advantage of the avenues you have to contact the retailer. And if you can’t contact them, don’t deal with them. Making online purchases can be secure and easy if you are informed. Anyone can uncover a dishonest dealer; you just need to test them.
