How to Identify a Fake Watch

Watches have become a very important symbol of status and welfare. There are people who are willing to buy replica watches so they could show their status, which in their case, though not always, can be quite doubtful.

When you buy a watch, and specifically a genuine watch, pay attention that you don't pay a lot of money for a fake timepiece. There are special on-line shops, which sell replica watches and they admit it. When buying a genuine watch at an unknown store, pay attention to the below listed steps, tips and warning.

1. Make yourself familiar with the collections of the watch brand, the timepiece of which you wish to buy.
2. Always inspect thoroughly the watch you wish to buy. Pay attention to the inscriptions and engravings on the face and on the case back of the watch. The original watch will never have a smeared inscription on the face or an unclear engraving.
3. Pay attention to the functions of the watch, i.e. how the watch itself works and how the chronograph works. Most Rolex watches have a sweep second hand and many fakes will have a tick style hand; however, some real Rolex watches have a tick style hand, so know your model. Some replica watches, which have a magnifying glass (called a cyclops), may have a weak level of magnification in comparison to the genuine timepiece.
4. Pay attention to the movement of the watch. If you intent to buy a mechanical timepiece, you should try to take a look under the case back. Fake watches often have a mechanical movement, but it is generally of lower quality than the genuine movement.

· Try to have the most recent catalogue always at hand, so you can compare the items in the store and the ones featured in the catalogue.
· Try to consult a person who deals with watches everyday or who is at least a watch enthusiast or professional collector.
· Use your common sense: a watch sold at a fraction of the store price is very likely to be fake.

· The catalogues may not always contain all the watch models the company provides. There are cases when a specific watch is not included in the catalogue. · Beware that there are mechanical counterfeits, which have a sweeping seconds hand.
· Be careful not to misidentify an original watch. The watchmakers have produced thousands of watches and collections. There are older models which might be identified as being replicas.
· There were cases when even the watch brand has issued watches initially having a flaw, so don't haste the decision. The manufacturer will always call the watches back, when the flaw will be discovered.

Repeater Watches and Clock Watches

Repeaters are those watches with an attachment added that will sound the time at the wish of the user. The repeating mechanism is operated by either a slide, plunger or button in the case of the watch.

There are basically five types of repeating mechanisms, some more common than others:

Quarter Repeaters

The quarter repeater strikes the previous hour and quarter hour.

Half-Quarter Repeaters

These strike the hours, followed by the quarters also an additional single blow to denote the passing of an additional 7 1/2 minutes. These type of repeaters are uncommon.

Five-Minute Repeaters

Five-Minute repeaters fall into two types. One system is similar to the half-quarter repeater but follows the 1/4 "ting-tang" by a single higher - pitched strike for each 5 minute interval elapsed since the last quarter. The other system strikes the hours on a deep gong and follows this with a single higher note for each five minutes period after the hour, omitting a 1/4 striking.

Minute Repeaters

The most complicated of the repeater is similar to quarter - repeater with the addition of the minutes. The minute repeater strikes the last recorded hour, quarter and minutes. Clock WatchesThe clock watch is essentially a repeater with the features of a striking clock.

How Do I Set The Time On My Pocket Watch

Sometimes when we get watches sent to us for repair, we naturally assume that the owner knows how to set the time on their watch. This is not the case, as many times someone inherits a fine railroad grade watch from a father or grandfather, and they have no idea how to set the time.

This topic will assist you in setting the hands on your watch.

There are many different ways that watchmakers designed watches and the ways to set them. There are lever set watches, stem set watches, pin or nail set watches and key set watches. We will start with the most used method first and move onto the least common methods.

LEVER SET. These are found mostly on railroad grade pocket watches like the Illinois Bunn Specials and the Hamilton 992's for example. Here is how you set the hands. Remove the bezel that holds the glass crystal. You will then see a small lever on either the right or left hand side of the dial. Pull this lever out. This engages the clutch and allows you to set the hands using the stem as if you were going to wind the watch. Turn the stem until the correct time appears on the watch. When the hands are set, push the lever back into place and replace the bezel. Simple. Right?

PENDANT SET or STEM SET. These setting arraignments are very common. Found on some early railroad grade watches to nice dress watches. Here is what you do. Using the same stem and crown that you wind your watch with, simply pull out on the crown until you notice a click. This engages the clutch and now by turning the stem and crown, you can set the correct time on your watch. When done, push the crown back into place. What could be easier?

KEY SET. Key set watches are some of the oldest types of watches made, dating well over one hundred years. If you have to wind your watch with a key, you probably need to use the same key to set the time. Here is what you do. Either remove the bezel or open the cover over the dial. You will see where the hands attach to the watch. Here you should notice a square shaped arbor. Place the key over this square and turn the hands until the correct time is shown. Remove the key, replace the bezel or cover and the job of setting the time on a key wind, key set watch is done.

PIN or NAIL SET. These are found on very old pocket watches. Located either to the left or right side of the pendant, you will see a small button that is protected with a small sleeve. You can use either a pin or your fingernail to press the small button in. While holding this button in, turn the stem and crown until the correct time is displayed. When done, release the small button. The clutch is then released and the hands begin telling the time.
We hope this helps you with the different methods of setting the time on your pocket watch.

How to Pry off a Watch Backing Without Proper Tools

If you have an inexpensive watch with a dead battery, you can replace the battery yourself. However, it is often difficult to remove the back cover of the watch case. Every watch is different, some may unscrew, while others will pry off, particularly common in less expensive watches. If your watch back prys off, and you don't have anything resembling proper watchmaker's tools available to you, then this article is for you.
1. Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal.
2. Get a kitchen knife with a rigid blade. It doesn't have to be razor sharp, it only needs to be inflexible. You can also use a small fine screwdriver.
3. Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
4. Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
· After you get the back off, you may need a magnifying glass to see the battery area details clearly.
· The battery may be held in place with a bracket, that may require an extremely tiny screwdriver blade. Try using a knife point-edge if that is all you have.
· Be sure to replace any rubber gaskets that may fall out when you open the case. If you don't, the watch may lose its water resistance.
· Walmart changes watch batteries for the brands of watches that they sell for free. You just pay for the battery. (Not all Walmarts offer this, due to liability concerns).
· Use the same safety rules with knives you would with a chisel: never press the knife towards your other hand, in other words position your hands when using the implement so that if it does slip it will not plunge into the hand you are using to hold the watch still.
· Be careful with knives. You're trying to open the watch, not your fingers. If it is stubborn and you are worried about a possible mishap, take it to Wal-Mart instead. They will replace the battery while you wait.
· Never try to use the point of the knife. It is much more likely to slip and cause injury, and it could also snap off, ruining the knife. Use the blade.
· Do not do this to an expensive watch. Don't be hacking away at a Rolex with a steak knife. If you need to open the case (and you shouldn't, because few expensive watches take batteries), go to a jeweler.
· Don't open the case of any kind of waterproof watch. These watches are made waterproof through the use of a vacuum inside the case, opening the case yourself will destroy this vacuum. Nor should you take a watch like this to Wal-Mart or anything else like that. Ask your jeweler if they have a vacuum case for replacing batteries in these kinds of watches, like most Tag Hauers, for example.
Things You'll Need
If the watch back doesn't have a tab or indentation then here is what to do.. Take a flat blade jewelers screwdriver and grind or file the tip to a knife edge. Mount the watch horizontally in a vise with the back facing up. Position the screwdriver edge on the parting line between the back and the case and tap the end of the screwdriver gently with a small hammer. The back will pop off!

Watch Band / Strap Buying and Replacement

Before you purchase a new watch band, you will need to know what size watch band you need.
To find out what size what band you need, just measure your current watch band / strap at the end that meets the watch.
Most men's watch bands range from 18mm - 22mm (larger men's watches are also now using 24mm or 26mm) and come in metal, leather, rubber, silicone, lizard, ostrich, alligator, suede, shark, stingray, and many other materials.
Most women' watch bands range from 14mm - 18mm (larger women's watches are now using up to 24mm bands) and come in metal, leather, rubber, silicone, lizard, ostrich, alligator, suede, shark, stingray, and many other materials.
Most watch bands are "straight" at the end.
If your watch band is "straight" at the end (no cutouts, etc.), then you will be able to easily find watch bands on ebay by simply typing in the size watch band you need (example - "18mm watch band" if your watch uses 18mm watch bands, etc).
If your watch is not "straight" at the end, then you'll need to search using the name/make/model of your watch to find the correct band (example - "....(brand).....(model)....(size)..., watch band").
If you have any questions re: what watch band you need, just email the seller of the watch band BEFORE bidding w/ any questions and most sellers are more then happy to help you purchase the right size/band.
Once you have your band and are ready to switch out your band, simply follow these easy directions:
All you have to do is get a spring bar tool (or a very small flat head screwdriver or a knife - be careful, please) and push the pins in that hold the band/buckle onto the watch. Just insert spring bar tool/screwdriver/knife between side of band and case/buckle and push in and down.
The band should “pop off” the watch and then just switch out the pins into the new band/buckle (and then place the band/buckle on your watch) and you'll be able to change your band/buckle easily and quickly.
These directions will work for 95% of all watches.
If you have a watch that uses screws or screw pins to hold your watch band on (usually more expensive watches), you will need a small screwdriver and will "unscrew" the pin instead of "popping" it off.
If you do have a watch w/ screw pins, I would suggest that you check w/ a jewler before switching out your band (just to be safe).

How to Put a Bracelet on by Yourself

When you are home alone, it can be difficult to clasp a bracelet on your wrist. You can try to place your wrist and the dangling bracelet against a dresser drawer, holding it in place with your stretched finger, or you can use this method. If you are lucky, one of them will work for you before you run out of patience.
1. Get some magic tape (the softer tape) and pull off a small piece.
2. Hold your bracelet and tape one end of the bracelet to your wrist.
3. Pull the rest of the bracelet around and attach it.
4. Remove the tape gently.
5. Or you could put the back of your forearm on a flat surface (with the bracelet under your wrist) and hold the buckle with your index finger and thumb. And then if possible, use your other hand to hold onto the buckle so now you have a free hand. So use your free hand to buckle you bracelet up. (ex. If you are putting your bracelet on your right arm, you put the back of your right forearm on a flat suface (with your bracelet under your wrist). Next, you take the buckle with your left index finger and thumb and then with your right hand, hold the buckle. Then use your left hand to buckle you bracelet.)
· Make sure you use tape that is gentle to the skin.
· If the bracelet is heavy, use your leg, a flat surface like a table or something similar to prop up the heavy dangling end of the bracelet - otherwise you will be writhing about to try and get the tape affixed.
· As small a piece of tape as is possible is best, to avoid it curling up on you while you attempt to stick it on.

Do not use this tip if you have allergies to plastics, gums or band-aids. It may set off a reaction.

Introduction to the Rolex Submariner

New to Rolex? In the world of watches Rolex is the equivalent of Rolls Royce. No matter how much you look around this brand has managed to achieve an almost mythical status. All the Rolex watches are made with a flawless quality and their designs have become classics. The Rolex Submariner watches make no exception. The design is very elegant and classy, while the high tech elements are closely disguised in one of the most refined watches ever made by the Swiss company.
Buyers of SubmarinerTypically Rolex targets very specific markets when developing a design. The average buyer of a Rolex Submariner watch is most likely to have an above average income and keen interest to water sports. This very specific market segment also means that the watch itself is adapted in functionality for these very specific needs.
FunctionsThe functional element that is the most adapted to this sort of lifestyle is the waterproof capability. Rolex took the challenge seriously and delivered one of the best waterproof systems to date. The Rolex Submariner watch won’t reveal this hidden perk as the design and the opulent usage of gold will most likely attract the views. This is part of the Rolex philosophy I guess. Delivering flawless functionality inside a jewel.
Beside the added functionality specific to the Rolex Submariner watch there are also other features typically found in a Rolex. The magnifying bubble for the date is there with the same 2.5X zoom which makes replicating a Rolex so difficult. The chronometer, another typical trademark of the Rolex design is also there. Finally the sapphire glass, the one that gave Rolex the reputation of the most scratch resistant watches in existence is also there.
Rolex has always managed to create watches in a consistent manner, while still having the time to innovate and create unique timepieces. What stands apart at the Rolex Submariner watches is the very design and the colors used. The bracelet is made of gold and stainless steel, while the dial has a deep blue and gold plated hands.
The design of the Rolex Submariner watches is far from minimalist. The watch has 3 hands and is designed to accurately show the time. Using these features comes as a natural part for the busy individual on a trip on his yacht. Of course this is just an example. Rolex always frowned upon the elimination of some the hands, as a watch must do more than show the time, it must show it accurately.
Obviously this watch is a dual purpose watch. It can very well be worn on those adrenaline full adventures and also during business meetings or evening events. It does not bother to separate these two apparently opposite worlds, but rather take the best of both of them.
The attitude behind the Rolex Submariner watches doesn’t exactly match the image of the perfect business man of our times. It is more the image of the 90’s. This is perhaps the reason for which the production of this model has been discontinued. Fashion changes and so does Rolex.

About Tudor History

The founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, is also the founder of Tudor.

In 1905 Wilsdorf set up his own company in England and began producing high quality watches. It was in 1908 that he began the Rolex brand. He ran the business in England for about fifteen years and then moved to Geneva in 1920.

Hans Wilsdorf first opened Tudor watches in 1946. The brand name Tudor was chosen because Wilsdorf wanted to pay tribute to the Tudor period of England. The most important difference between Rolex and Tudor was already inherent in the 1940??s when the first Tudor Oyster reached the market: Inside the screwed-in Oyster case, there was not a Rolex manufactured movement, but a movement supplied by Ebauches SA, ETA. The Rolex company still places value today on the fact that the modified automatic calibers by ETA are "especially made for Tudor."

Tudor watches were used by the French Navy for its divers, with the first Tudor Submariners being purchased in the late 1960. Additionally the same model was used by the US Navy for its UDT and Navy Seals.

How Do You Wear Your Replica Watch?

We've seen all styles of watch wearing, but we were curious how our readers wear their Replica Watches. While wearing a watch on the inside of the wrist isn't an uncommon sight, it seems to be less common when wearing a luxury watch.
If you have the time, we'd appreciate it if you'd vote in the following poll. A quick survey of everyone here at hellorolex came up overwhelmingly "Left wrist, facing out". How about you? Do you wear your Replica Watches facing outward and spill your martini all over yourself when someone asks you the time? Do you wear it facing in and spill your martini all over them?

Buying a Watch You Might Want to Read this First

Do you have a collection of watches? Or do you at least own a watch? Is it real? Is it genuine? Or is it a replica? Having a watch and wearing it around our wrist makes us time conscious. And it is not a bad habit or bad connotation. In fact, I consider it as a positive character because it will lessen our tardiness when it comes to work, school, or meetings.
What things do you consider when buying a watch? Does it have to be big? Does it have to be small? Does it have to be Rolex? Or any watch will do as long as it tells you the correct time? Owning a factual watch would cost us a lot of money but buying a fabricated watch will not stay long on your ownership. So, what watch does an individual really need?
You need to consider many things. Though it’s just a watch, you might want to own something that is good, useful, and affordable. A material that is expensive is not always beneficial and not all low-priced things are useless. Sometimes, you just need to be meticulous to possess the things that you really want and you really need.
Now let’s see the most common factors that you need to consider in selecting a watch:
1. Time or When to purchase a watch. If you’re not in a hurry to buy a watch, then take some time first to read articles, scan magazines, visit sites that deals with watch, etc. so you can have a wide variety of watches to choose from. This will give you an idea of how much money you will be spending, plus you don’t need to spend a lot of time in the mall trying to figure out what watch will best suit your needs. But if you really need the watch already, then at least bring with you at least two friends so you could ask for their comments and suggestions regarding watches.
2. Money. Save or set apart your budget (if you have one) so you will not be able to spend it on other things. Some people (including me) tend to spend my budget for other things, which I really do not need. Doing this, will not let you spend too much money for a watch.
3. Brand. Some of you may have your eyebrows raise and ask “What the heck?” This is true. You might want to consider also he brand of what that you will be buying. Is it already tested? Is it known for durable products? You have to know these things if you want to own a watch that will last long.
4. Where to buy. If you’re buying from the watch store itself (e.g. Rolex store) then I guess you can omit this on your list. But if you will be buying from malls or department stores, then you need to consider this factor. This is important for if in case the watch that you bought is damage, you can easily go to the store where you bought it and ask for a replacement. Just be sure that you have the receipt with you for they will not entertain you if you don’t have any proof of purchase.
5. How the watch looks like if you’re wearing it. If you’re already on the store to buy your watch, you might want to consider fitting it before buying it. Does it look good on you? Does it suit all your clothes? I’m sorry to disappoint you but not all watches can be appropriate with different kinds of dresses. Be sure that it looks good on you and you feel comfortable wearing it.
There are so many things that you still need to consider in selecting your watch. But at least you have an idea as to how to select the appropriate watch for you. I hope this helps you even just a bit.

The History of Citizen Watches

There are a lot of different companies that make watches and timepieces today but there are few that have been around as long as the Citizen Watch Company. Moreover, there are only a handful of companies that have stuck to their guns when it comes to the quality of the products that they were founded upon. Citizen Watch Company is the exception to the rule when it comes to this area of business and they have yet to fall to the almighty dollar and cut the quality. This is why they are now the largest maker of watches and timepieces in the world with a presence in every major country. The uncompromising quality and style of the Citizen Watch has made this so.
The first Citizen Watch was created in 1924 using a new form of technology to make it the smallest and thinnest of the time. It is very hard to recognize this timepiece against the watches that are made today but anyone with a little knowledge can easily identify the craftsmanship of the piece and know that it is a Citizen Watch. This was the springboard for the piece and it went all uphill from there.
The actual Citizen Watch Company was formed six years later in 1930 and was an immediate success. This was due in part to the founders need to bring better and brighter things to the market as soon as possible. Unlike a lot of companies that will hold off on new technology so they do not hurt their current market, the Citizen Watch Company rolled out the many products that it developed from the beginning and made a big splash in the world. This has also made them one of the most hated among the other watch makers in the world but that is nothing to this company as they rolled along.
The Citizen Watch Company now employs more than three thousand people the world over. Based in Japan, they are the first company to make some of the finest innovations in the world and still maintain a market presence in the standard watches that they produced as well. This is something that the other companies were having a lot of trouble with and making a lot of enemies along the way was a daily occurrence for this company.
The Citizen Watch Company was the sole responsible party for the first shock resistant watch to ever be made. This was a big deal for the many hard working people in the world who were tired of having to take their watch in for repair because of shock problems.
Citizen also made its mark on the diving world with the first professional dive watch that features an electronic depth sensor. This improvement on the old design of diving watch has ever endeared the company to the many diving enthusiasts around the world.
They were also responsible for the first Analog Quartz watch to be produced which single handedly changed the way the world told time. Today the Citizen Watch Company has taken the watch making world to a whole new level with Eco Drive System. Tapping into the resource of being environmentally friendly, the Eco Drive System uses a hidden solar cell that is embedded into the works. This cell gathers power from the sun and artificial light sources and turns it into energy to drive the watch. By far this is the most popular watch to be found today and it has more benefits to the environment. No longer do you need to go to the store to purchase a new battery and worry about the old one polluting the ground in a land fill somewhere.
All in all the Citizen Watch Company has been responsible for some of the best things to happen in watches and timepieces for the past many years. Today they are still one of the most popular watch brands in the world and make up a large share of the market with the newest products that can be found almost anywhere.

Whatever Happened to Winding?
Depending on your age, you may or may not remember seeing your father wind his watch each night before going to bed. If he did not, he would surely wake to a watch that had stopped. Those days became history with the advent of the automatic watch. What makes it automatic? It still has the same basic mechanism to keep the watch working, but how that mechanism is powered changed the way we cared for our watches.
All mechanical watches work in a similar manner. They require a movement of a series of gears to “tick” of increments of time, which in turn registers as movements of the hands on the face of the watch. A rotor in the watch sits on a staff in the middle of the watch’s movement. It rotates in a circular motion and winds the mainspring which is the source of power in mechanical watches. With an automatic watch the winding of this spiral spring is done automatically with any arm or wrist movement.
Self-winding, automatic watches work great for people who wear the watch each day, but if you do not wear the watch frequently, it needs manual winding about twice a week. Even automatic watches will stay working better if they are wound manually about once every two weeks because this helps keep the watch lubricated. It is a misconception that automatic watches never need any winding, since it all depends on the movement of the arm to keep it functioning well.
A power reserve lets the movement of your watch keep time for anywhere between 10 and 72 hours. There is something called a power reserve, and the bigger the reserve, the longer your automatic watch will keep running without further movement or manual winding.
Rolex was the first watch manufacturer to devise and patent the rotor system that is still used today. They called it the Perpetual and it was part of the popular Oyster line created in the early 1930s. Emile Borer was the Rolex technician who came up with the system, but he was not the first to develop a rotor. That distinction goes to Swiss watchmaker, Abraham-Louis Perrelet as long ago as 1770. This was quite the invention because it wouldn’t be until much later in time that wrist watches were worn and there just wasn’t enough physical movement with a pocket watch to make it a feasible way to move the rotor and wind the mainspring.
Automatic watches differ from quartz watches which are powered by batteries and not by either a manual or automatic winding system. Powered by a battery, the quartz crystal inside a quartz watch vibrates nearly 33,000 times per. Watch batteries last about two years, where automatic watches have a never ending source of power: movement or motion.
Quartz watches account for most moderately priced watch sales today, but connoisseurs of watches still like the prestige and elegance of a finely crafted mechanical watch. Automatics have started to regain some of the quartz market in recent years accounting for huge increases (95%) in sales between 1993 and 1995.
Lubrication is essential to keeping an automatic watch running well. Watches can be lubricated by manually winding the watch periodically and taking it in to a jeweler once about every 3 to 5 years. When winding an automatic watch, just wind it about 30 to 40 times or until you feel some resistance. Keeping the watch is a watch winding box is also a good way to keep the watch lubricated.
Automatic watches are also quite affordable. They actually come in every price range. Some economical brands include Invicta watch and Orient watch, and then the price can reach into the very expensive range depending on the embellishments or the prestige of a specific brand.

Buying Your Next Watch Online

Customers looking for a new watch online are simply amazed at the prices they see compared to the traditional brick-and-mortar jewelry store. The internet has enabled e-businesses to bring products to the consumers at jaw-dropping discounts. A watch is a fairly expensive purchase and you should do your homework before buying one online. First and foremost, make sure that the company is an “authorized retailer” for the watch brand you are interested in. When buying from an authorized retailer, you can be certain that your purchase will be new, factory sealed, and will come with the original manufacturers warranty. Authorized retailers must maintain the quality and customer service standards that are required to sell watches. The manufacturer (such as Citizen, Fossil, Rolex, etc) often require the retailer to have an actual storefront, have 24/7 customer service, have secure online ordering, they can only sell new products, and much more in order to maintain the dignity of the items sold. Buying from “unauthorized” retailers is NOT recommended.
Unauthorized retailers sell “grey market watches” because they cannot get the products directly from the manufacturer. They must instead get their supply from a third party or another country. Typically a manufacturer will take all of their watches that were overstock, were returned, were repaired, etc. and will sell them in markets overseas. Unauthorized retailers get their hands on these products and then try to sell them at a higher price back to you. They often don’t come with original packaging, may be used or damaged, and are never guaranteed by the manufacturer. Many “grey market” watches are repaired with cheaper non OEM parts that were manufactured overseas for a fraction of the cost. This allows them to bring you some of the lowest prices available, however you really are getting what you paid for. Only buy from authorized retailers! Find the watch you want, find it online for a great price, make sure the retailer is authorized, and you will be satisfied with your purchase.
