14 k and platinum plated are just words to make junk jewellery look more expensive
real gold is stated in C not k as the word is spelt carat
platinum is a precious metal but when used with the letter K it indicates that what you are looking at buying will have very little value in real terms

There are a couple of things to look at first. If it has a date displ;ayed on the face, the magnifier on the crystal appears like a small bubble on the crystal. If it's flat, it's probably a knockoff. Rolex also laser etches a tiny image of their logo on the crystal next to the crown. You'll need a magnifier to see it. If it's missing it's fake. If it has a see through back it's fake. Last, check the serial # against the Rolex on-line database of serial #s'.
If you need a new band for RADO watch, you can pop in any watch shop and choose whichever band you like. The only thing you have to remember is; get the right size. Right size for you watch is the size between lugs in millimetres. Lugs are the things where the band gets attached to the watch. Measure that distance - this is the size of band you are looking for.If you are after original Rado band, then you will have to pop into your nearest Rado dealer shop and order it. The real thing will be far more costly.
mcdevito75 here, The best way is to reove the back cover and look at the mechanism, However there are a couple of things you can look at to determine if it"s a replica. First, look at the Bulova name on the watch, is it spelled right and are all the Letters in the name the same, if so yor Bulova is most likely real, and, I haven:t heard of a Bulova replica, that"s not to say there aren:t any but it would have to be a high end Bulova, the Excellency as an example.
Tough question as the counterfeiters are getting better and better. First check the case and band. Rolex used stainless steel , gold or platinum. Many fakes are plated, base metal which doesn't look the same as the real thing.
If the seconds hand hesitates at each tick, it is 99.9% sure to be fake.
Check between the watchband lugs on the watch.
The serial number will be between the 6:00 lugs and the case (model) number will be between the 12:00 lugs.
The only sure way is to take the back off and look at the movement. Best left to the professionals
You could confirm the serial numbers, etc other markings on it at a local watchman or contact the company who made it I'm sure they can confirm if its a fake or a real one based on the serials and other markings.
check a bunch of things...even great fakes slip up on one or two details
check the luminous markers, are they painted well?
check the bezel luminous marker, does it match an authentic?
check the wing logo on the dial
look at the font for the date
look at the band pins (they should be screws-round or flat depending on model)
check the crystal, should have no reflection and a purple hue when viewed at an angle
under the lugs will be a date etched in to the case
the bezel will have a small "B" etched in between 11 and 12 on the side, not the face
Bottom line, unless you have paperwork in hand and a verification that the seller bought it from Breitling, you are probably looking at a fake
