How To Steer Clear Of Fake Watches
One of the most prized possessions in a man’s wardrobe is his luxury watch. Some even have their own collection, and some are connoisseurs. While we know that men love watches, we also know how lazy they are at shopping. And this laziness might make them take a dire decision when choosing a luxury watch. Yes, we are talking about fakes. With so many designs, brands and outlets in the market today, picking the real one has become the most important task. We are giving you a few pointers on how you can steer clear of the counterfeit and get the real deal.
Do Your Homework
Make use of the internet. Look for watch clubs, talk to watch connoisseurs, check out the official websites of the watch brands you like. Watch clubs bring together all kinds of watch lovers who share their experiences, which might help you pick the right watch. You can also cross-check with an image of the watch on the brand’s official website with the one that you planning to buy. There is an abundance of knowledge online if you try getting it in the right manner.
Check The Material
Check the construct of the watch. A fake watch is made of cheaper material and hence won’t have the cuts, design and durability of a real watch. Watch closely and check for cuts, scratches and rust as well.
Too Lightweight Not Too Good
As mentioned before, fake watches are made of cheaper material and as a result, even the weight of the watch goes down. A fake watch would be much lighter than the real one.
Got The Right Moves?
Analyze the internal movement of the watch. Any kind of halts or drags in the movement of the hands of the watch might mean it’s a counterfeit. A real watch would always have the perfect internal movement without any kind of pause.
Ask For Warranty
Always ask for warranty when buying a luxury watch. Whether you buy it from an offline store or online, warranty is a must. If you’re getting is without warranty then it’s probably a fake.
Does It Read Right?
Take a look at the textual use inside the watch. The date, day, month, numbers or anything that’s written inside. The text inside a real watch would always be perfect. Nothing even slightly erased or tilted. Most of the fake watches have unusual typefaces and the printing is badly done.
A luxury watch worth 50000 INR is being sold at 10000 INR. Get the drift? Enough said.
