Welcome to our regular Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we post watch related videos from the web to highlight interesting watches or interesting aspects of watch making. Â Today, due to stumbling across the first video, I went with a whole theme of videos that explore fake Rolex watches.
Why fake Rolexes? Â Well, given their position in the market (everyone knows about Rolex, even if they are not in to watches) and how little their watches change over the years, they are a popular target for counterfeiters. Â Our first video compares a fake and authentic Rolex Datejust II.
Next up, we have a video that shows you the guts of a $10 flea market Rolex Day-Date. Â This really illustrates two things – if it’s too good to be true, it is, and that when you find something like this, do not be afraid to open it up and modify it a bit.
Next up, we have a fake Rolex Submariner. Â Unlike the previous video, this one is no longer running, which really would give you carte blanche to open things up and take it all apart – satisfy that curiosity about how they come together!
Last, but not least, we have another real vs. fake comparison, this time for a Rolex Sea Dweller. Â This one does not get into the guts of the watches, but is a handy comparison, especially if you were looking to pick one of these up.
Thatâ€™s it for this weekâ€™s watch video rewind.Â If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, drop us a line. If we end up using in the watch video rewind from your suggestion, weâ€™ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
