Clasp

It is not enough to just browse some replica websites and choose a design that you like. The most important thing is to be positive that between the imitation you are buying and the real watch it clones there are no visible differences. No one wants to wear a fake looking watch. So how can we avoid such embarrassing situations? That’s easy! Pay attention to the smallest details and you will end up with a replica which looks and feels like a million bucks.

I have noticed that very few shoppers pay attention to a very important aspect of a watch: the clasp. This quite small and let’s face it:  quite hidden part of a timepiece is also crucial for determining the accuracy of your knock-off. If the clasp doesn’t have the correct markings or the correct aesthetics then it will be a dead giveaway that your watch is a replica. For example, the Rolex Daytona is an all-time classic and even though it has a very long tradition on the watch market, its design hasn’t changed that much over time. This also includes the looks of its clasp so determining if a Rolex Daytona clasp looks authentic or not shouldn’t be that much of a challenge.

When comparing the original clasp of the Rose Gold Daytona with the one of its replica we easily notice a few differences, like the position of the little Rolex crown. This small logo should be on the left side of the closing system and serve as a pull button which allows us to unlock it and open the band. Next, the left side of the clasp should be wider and have straight outside edges instead of round shaped markings as the imitation watch clearly has. The finishing and the sturdiness of the clasp seem to be the same on both watches; still this is not sufficient when considering the other quite obvious flaws.

As you can see it is very easy to determine how accurate a replica is just by studying the design of the clasp. Pay just the right amount of attention to this very small and discrete part of a watch and it will bring you closer to buying a good quality imitation timepiece.
