How to spot a counterfeit watch? 

Whenever you are planning to buy a watch, you can easily buy it from anywhere. But when you are planning to buy a branded watch for you then the things are exactly different. Moreover, you should think in the different way so that you can get the genuine product. With the increasing trends of branded watches and increasing demands of the branded watches, certain fraud dealers have invaded the market and offering fake watches to the public. So, a customer should be smart enough to differentiate between fake watches and branded watches. 

Today, there are a lot of manufacturers who are generating the counterfeit watches and it is very difficult to differentiate between the branded watch and counterfeit watch [นาฬิกาก๊อป, which are the term in Thai]. They are constructed in such a way that nobody can recognise its genuineness. Counterfeits are those who do the copy of all the luxury brands in the market and make them available in the market at the same price. But no matter how similar these watches look, there is a huge difference between the branded and fake. Though, one can easily copy the kit, boxes, appearance of the watch but it is impossible to match the service of the branded watches. 

There are some important things that you can consider to find the one perfect piece for you. Let us know about it. 

Type of metal: 

If you are buying a watch and it is made from metals like titanium or stainless steel then it will be heavy in weight. On the other hand, if you are buying a watch which is completely counterfeit then it will be light in weight. It is not difficult to track the difference in the weight of the two watches. 


One can easily estimate the quality of the watch depending on the functioning or the mechanism. If you are getting the watch having quartz mechanism then the watch can be considered as genuine. 

Even though, if you have even minor doubt on the originality of the product, you can easily skip it. It is better to avoid rather than regretting for the rest of the life.
