We’ve discovered a number of easy ways to tell a real Daytona Rolex watch from a counterfeit. And you need to be aware of these secrets if you plan on purchasing a Rolex Presidential, Submariner, Yacht Master, etc.

  1. Secret Tip #1 Casebacks – many fake Rolex watches have a clear back that allows you to see the inner workings of the watch. Rolex never has made a watch with a clear back.
  2. Secret Tip #2 Holograms – real Rolex watches leave the factory with a Hologram-encoded sticker on the back of the watch. This hologram can be identified by the trademark crown sitting above the watch’s reference number. These hologram stickers change their appearance by viewing it from different angles. While fake watches might have stickers on the back, they’re usually not true holograms and don’t change appearance.
  3. Secret Tip #3 Triplock Crown Seals – Many Rolex models, like the Submariner, Sea-Dweller and Daytona, use an extra seal within the threads of the winding crown’s tube. The gasket looks like a small o-ring and can be seen if you fully unscrew the winding crown. Most fake Rolex watches don’t have this extra seal and of the ones that do, it’s not a functioning seal.
  4. Secret Tip #4 Micro-Etched Crystal – Authentic Rolex watches now feature the crown logo etched into the crystal at the 6 o’clock position. The mark is very small and hard to see without the use of a loupe or magnifying glass.
