I have been wanting to learn more about actual Rolex parts and try and freinkenstein my own watch one day.. I have to learn how to spot fake rotors, movements, all that good stuff so its a lot to learn. I thought I would start with my friends on here, what are you top signs when your looking to spot a fake Rolex? I have always understood the standard markers, such as weight, and obvious signs like that but I read some more recenetly on How to Spot a Fake Rolex - The Official Guide
There is a lot more that you can point out on fake watches, especially once you open that case back but I did not realize the text on the dials are a tell tale sign as well. Kind of mind blowing considering I thought they were meant to be different but they literally do that on purpose. I have a lot to learn about movements and even more but what are your go to signs?

The Rolex fakes are so incredibly good these days, it is hard to tell the difference without a microscope.

This can give you an example of how hard it can be:

To be honest, I never had any go to signs Edward.😊 Mainly because
I don't have, or never had a Rolex unfortunately. But it sounds like you
actually know quite a bit honesty, and the fact that you are looking, or
willing to learn so much more is fantastic. :)🏆Because you are trying
to find out as much as you can, and in a cool way are actually becoming
someone we might come to for answers. 😀

It seems from watching the videos that it all comes down to very very
small details, or actually slight inconsistencies with finishing right guys?!

Holy cow, have to thank you just for coming up with this topic Edward,
and you too FBPB for these amazing videos !!!
