How do you spot a fake? Buddy with a real one says it ticks rather than move smoothly?

Mostly true, but not necessarily. My dad has a rip-off GMT that takes a "Rolex guy" to spot. It has a sweep second hand, just like the real thing. Also has a counterfeit Rolex hologram sticker on the back, just like the real thing (except for it being counterfeit). Decent watch...he paid a couple hundred for it. Came from overseas packed in a flashlight. A buddy of his got one at the same time. Came packed in the battery compartment of a cheap radio.

The buddy, just for fun, took his to a jeweler to see what he said. Told the guy he inherited it, and wanted to know if it was real or not. The jeweler was completely fooled. The store sold Rolex, but the jeweler who looked at it wasn't a Rolex expert.

Of course, $20 on the street corner gets you a completely different animal.

I bought a fake Rolex from a Marine at Subic Bay. Great looking watch, hard to tell it's fake. Only paid $30.00 for it.
