Amongst watch enthusiasts, Rolex watches are second to only Patek Philippe. When purchasing a Rolex watch make sure you purchase it from an authorized Rolex dealer. You should be able to find an authorized dealer in your area by contacting Rolex or most jewelry/watch stores will have the crown emblem displayed somewhere on their storefront. At the time of purchasing your watch you should also be given papers certifying the watch is indeed a genuine Rolex as well as an original box to store your watch.

Rolex watches are so popular that even the imitation market is huge, quite possibly the largest market for replicas of any specific watch company. It is important to note that there are many differences in qualities of imitations for Rolex watches, a ten dollar imitation or a two hundred dollar imitation. These imitation watches can be very convincing to a person not familiar with handling genuine Rolex watches on a regular basis. A common way to distinguish if the watch is an imitation is by feeling the weight and taking a close up look at the details of the watch, but on a high end imitation this could be difficult. The only true way to tell an imitation is by opening the back of the watch and taking a look at the movement. However, if performed by an inexperienced watchmaker the internals of the watch can be damaged.

Popular Rolex watch models include:

Exporer II

  1. Great article. I'm a huge watch fan. I usually get some good deals when I use World of Watches coupon codes whenever possible to save some money

  2. I know nothing about these
    watches. Most of them are $300 or higher. There is only one
    at $200. What is it that I must look for to get him a watch he will
    treasure and be able to use for the next 20 years? What is it that
    makes this one $200 watch different from those at $300 or more?....
    If only everything were as simple as using
    Generic Viagra
