How to set the time and date to my rolex, and if under number 6 when you remove bracelet i don't have number that means is a fake?


That number does correspond with a genuine Rolex. Stop Ina watch repair store where they actually do the work. I have not seen a knock off with a serial numbers or model number stamped between the case lugs.
Hope this helps.

Fake or real


Because the replicas are getting better and some are even using high grade ETA movements, it us best to visit your local Certified Master Horologist for authenticity verification. The model and serial numbers on the replicas make them appear to be genuine, so this is truly the best method. We provide this service for our clients regularly.

I would suggest only buying from an authorized dealer that sells watches with their original serial number intact. Especially for a high-end watch like a Rolex.

This is very difficult to say if your watch is genuine or fake just by the numbers given, but if you will pop in to any decent watch repair shop, they will be able to tell you within a matter of few minutes.

Has all the marking the original one has except the oysters and doesnt have roman numerals. How can I tell if this is fake or not?


The Rolex Dealer would be able to help you, the original would have a registered serial number that must match to make it genuine, or go to www.rolex.com for customer support they may offer additional information that might be helpful.

I have a rolex that has daytona in red on the face winner and rolex 24 on the back, real or not.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.

1. Rolex watches don't tick! An immediate way to tell if a Rolex is authentic is to listen to it. If it's ticking, it's definitely a fake!

2. Genuine Rolexes are made from very sturdy materials. For this reason, they are going to feel heavy in your hand. Your fakes are constructed from cheap, less-durable materials, and because of this, are usually very light. A real Rolex will have bands that are full and solid. Knock-offs will usually have links that are hollow, which is why they weigh so very little.

3. Rolexes have a smooth and continuous second hand movement. Another way to tell if a Rolex is authentic is if the second hand jerks as it travels around the face. If it does, it's a textbook fake.

4. Rolexes have a crystal bubble called a "Cyclops Magnification Bubble." This crystal bubble magnifies the date 2.5 times. Your fakes will usually be off-center and made of glass, and only offer 1.5 times the magnification.

5. Another sure way to tell is to look at the lettering and numbers. If you look at these with a jeweler's loupe, every line and edge will be perfect and precise. On a fake, the lettering edges will not be clean. Serial numbers and case numbers will often look as though they were sand-blasted, or will not be etched cleanly into the surface. Any imperfection will tell you right away if the Rolex is authentic.

6. All Rolexes feature a hologram sticker on the back. This sticker features the Rolex Crown and case reference number. Counterfeits will have the sticker, but it will not be holographic.

7. Certain models of Rolexes have an extra seal called a "Triplock Crown Seal." This feature is common to your Daytona and Submariner models and is found between the winding tube's threads. It will be missing on all of your replicas.

8. Rolexes have a micro-etched crown. Etched into the crystal just below the 6 o'clock position is a tiny crown. The mark is so small that it can only be seen under magnification. The detail on this micro-etching is perfect, making it impossible for the imitations to duplicate.

9. Knock-offs will usually have a glass, or "skeleton" case back. Genuine Rolexes will never have a clear or see-through case back. This should be a dead giveaway and will immediately tell you if the Rolex is authentic.

10. Rolexes have a face that is composed of sapphire crystal. Faux watches will usually use regular glass instead. Because of the extremely smooth surface, water dropped onto the sapphire crystal face of a true Rolex will always bead up. On a fake, the water will simply spread across the face and will not bead up.

Best regards. Jewel

Match the year of my Rolex Explorer 1 from the serial number


I would expect Rolex to have a record of all their watches and if you contact your nearest dealer, they should be able to help you.

You can find a store guide on their web site "rolex.com"
