Re: detecting fake orient watches
I also like to buy watches from time to time.
The fakes being made today are done very well. Naturally, they do not come near to the quality of an original one. Many of them are now made to weigh the same and feel like the real one!
The best way is to open the watch and look at the movement. If you know watch movements you should spot right away if the watch is okay or not. If there is a serial number mark it down and call or email the manufacture of the watch.
If you are buying an expensive watch and you do not know them seller very well, and you cannot inspect the watch in person, you are taking a chance!
I know of a few instances where people bought watches where they thought they were getting an excellent deal. They ended up getting a clone watch.
Take care when buying used name brand watches, collector items, antiques, or high end film cameras.

Fake watches are and have been very prevalent. Take your watch to a watchmaker and ask him to open it. The outside may look like a Movado but the crooks rarely bother with the insides as most victims don't look inside. By the time the victim does, they have your money. There are some good fakes unfortunately and people get duped regularly. For those people that buy them knowing they're fake I have only one thing to say to you, "Fake people buy fake watches"
many watch sold online has no warranty on outside the u.s. because many of them carries many watch brand not only fossil itself. but if the warranty is your only problem, forget about it. in the phillippines you can find many service center which can repair your watch at a low price. where is your location in the phillippines so that i can give you the addresses of the sevice centers. it is fake or not? the watches sold online is not fake. there are some selling imitation watches but not fossil. last year my friend bought a fossil online, i have checked it, i found it is genuine. he ordered again casio brand it is genuine too. but if you are not really sure about it. just buy on the mall in the phillppines L-time studio carries fossil and they have fossil stores. that you can choose comfortably without the thinking that it may be a fake watch. ok na? i hope I had been helped you.
if you really want to know if it's fake or not you must consult with the authorized distributor of rado brand watch bring the watch to them for they will see it in actual because many fake watches has the same model number of the original one. i hope that my suggestion will help you.
Sorry - it is a fake! I have the same watch serial number bought at a fake goods store in Beijing (Yashow), and yet another is posted for sale here: http://www.oztion.com.au/buy/auction...itemid=8398193 Still, the fake I have is a good quality fake, good crystal and good quality and has been working well for a year... still worth the $80 I paid for it including skin tax!!
Well I'm, not an expert of fake Luminox, only the real ones, but I will tell you that a 'real' Luminox will be heavy to the touch, good quality steel...another thing that is a must if it is real is the glass tubes on the hands and on the dial at the hour markers...they are very small glass tubes that are not 'charged' by putting in light, they stay lit regardless of any surrounding factors...most fake watches will have 'painted' on glow onto the dial and especially the hands...this model also has a screw-down crown and sapphire crystal...hope this has helped...good luck :)
You can distinguish real or fake.the real is heavy than the fake,fake is lighter.the color the real one is not to shine is dull,the fake is very shiney compare to real,the metal they use the real uses stainless,titanium and gold.The fake is nickel plate or zinc metal.the engraving the real is deep seated engraving,the fake is on the top only not so deep.I can't say your watch is real or fake,basing on serial number,the emitator can emitate the number.I gave you a tip how you know the real or fake.
