Bogus or Fake Rolex Watches

Rolex watches are probably one of the most copied watches in the world. Many of the counterfeits use very good mechanical movements that lets the sweep second hand glide around swiss replica watches the dial chapters, a Rolex trait. Others use a common quartz movement where the sweep second hand ticks every second as it steps replica watches around the dial, an obvious fake. But be careful, Rolex made a few models that used quartz movements.

This is one of the biggest myths about fake vs. real Rolex There are several Rolex questions on Yahoo Answers where people say a ticking second hand means its fake. This is NOT true.

According to the “ROLEX REPORT” by John E. Brozek

Do genuine Rolex watches “tick”?

“This has been a big misconception regarding Rolex watches, “sweeping” versus “ticking”. And in the past people used this as a method of identifying counterfeit Rolex watches.

The truth is, genuine Rolex watches do, in fact, “tick”. However, they tick at around 5 to 6 times per second, so it gives the illusion of “sweeping” or “floating” around the dial. If you watch the second hand with a loupe you can see it.

In the past, cheap counterfeits would utilize quartz movements, and thus would “tick” once per second. However, these days counterfeits use mechanical movements that appear to “float”, but only at around 3 to 4 times per second. This gives what we call a “choppy step”, and can also be spotted with a loupe.

With that being said, Rolex also made quartz watches, since the 1970s, but were discontinued a few years ago. However, these models were only made in very small quantity, and represented only around 2% of their total watch production. Another Rolex model, the Tru-beat, featured a mechanical movement that was designed to “tick” only once per second. This “dead beat” seconds feature wasn very popular and the watch was discontinued shortly after it was introduced, in 1954. ”

I have a real Rolex and the second hand does ticket 4 to 5 times a second giving. If you don have a Rolex to verify this with please don reply with your ignorance.
