How to Spot a Fake Replica Tudor Watch?
You can use a few approaches to identify a replica or fake Tudor, I list some methods below for your references. If you want to buy a genuine Tudor, you must ensure that the product you are getting is authenticate and not an elaborated copy.
Luminosity: Most Tudor watches use a substance called LumiNova to provide the glow to the dial and hands that allows you to read the time in darkness. Replica Tudor watches normally have a poor quality luminous material applied compared to a genuine watch. The replica won't glow as brightly or as long when charged and viewed in a low light situation. It's also common that replica Tudor watches will have missing luminous materials and not glow at all. Use a flashlight to "charge" a watch and observe the brightness of the dial and hands in the dark.
Grammar and Spell: Many of these replica Tudor watches are made by people whose first language is not English. Because of this, several spelling errors have slipped into the final products and make determining if a watch is counterfeit very easy. Read carefully the dial and the case back. Check the spelling; don't assume that it's correct. We've seen spelling errors like "Eigtheem Jewels","NIMITED EDITION", and "Made in Swiss", which make it obvious that the watch is not genuine.
Glue on Crown: Cheap replica Tudor watches might have the logo actually glued to the end of the crown. These watches have so many other flaws that this won't be your first indication of problems. Make sure the crown shows no sign of glue or uneven edges. Also, the watch should wind smooth and free, without the feel of the movement moving in the case.
Fuzzy Printed Dial: Here's where a jeweler's loupe can be very very useful. Look closely via a jeweler's loupe at the dial and date wheel (if present) through the loupe. The printing of genuine Tudor wathes should be sharp and defined, not fuzzy around the edges or bleeding between letters. A genuine dial with sloppy printing would be rejected at the factory during inspection. The odds are that, unless the watch has been redialed, if it has irregular print quality it's a counterfeit.
