A big tree attracts the wind. Rolex is naturally immune to the infringement of imitation watches as the best-selling high-end watch brand. Rolex has gradually etched a micro-crown on the sapphire mirror at the 6 o’clock position of most of its models to prevent counterfeiting since 2002.
Many watch friends reported they could not see the crown mark and suspected their watches were fake. But in most cases, the method is just wrong because the crown mark is laser-engraved on the inside of the sapphire and can only be seen under certain lights. It’s also small in size, so it’s easy to overlook.
If you need to check this secret mark, using a mobile phone flashlight from the horizontal side in a dark environment is the easiest way.
Strictly speaking, it is possible to distinguish the authenticity of the watch mirror through this crown secret mark. But not all Rolex watch mirrors have a small anti-counterfeiting crown, such as Milgauss green glass, which does not have one. Replica rolex watches.
At the same time, counterfeiters can now forge small crowns on the watch mirror. Although there is a difference between a fake crown and a genuine crown, because the size of the secret mark is too small, only professional equipment and means can effectively distinguish them.
Therefore, just because the Rolex watch mirror does not have a crown does not mean that it is a fake watch, and the presence of a crown does not mean that it is a genuine watch! Fake watches.
So, how do we effectively identify it?
We can use a high-power magnifying glass more than 35 times to view the small anti-counterfeiting crown, composed of tiny dots, on the Rolex watch mirror.
Looking at it from the front, we will find that the lines connected by the small dots are straight, smooth, and standard.
At this point, if we tilt the watch, view it from the side. You will find that the lines formed by the small dots become crooked and uneven.
This happens because Rolex does not use lasers to dot the inside of the watch mirror on a single plane but on planes at different heights. As a result, the “regular front and blurred side” situation occurred, and the fake watch directly made a small crown secret mark on a flat surface.
