Another sign is that Rolex is a fake is the date window. When you view the date by Cyclops, the date should be enlarged 2.5 times and fill the entire window.

Only 18 carat gold and platinum Rolex on the dial have a date and day, never a stainless steel model. (Thanks to our readers, Pat, who told us, "There is no day-one stainless date for the general public, but from my reading I learned there are 10 of them! A few years ago, when Rolex established the Day-Date as part of their line, 10 were made from stainless steel and presented to the major technicians who worked on the project. However, they are rarer than the Kew Observatory Rolexes.")

In many cases, to see that if Rolex is real or a replica based on weight. Under normal circumstances, fake Rolex replica watches is very light. If you put on a Rolex, it is a lot lighter than you expect, proceed with caution.

Another quick and easy way to help determine the authenticity of the Rolex is by taking a look at the caseback. A Rolex caseback is always smooth. If the caseback has an engraving or etching, you can safely assume that it is a replica.
