How to Spot a Fake Replica Movado Watch?
You can use a few approaches to identify a replica or fake Movado, I list some methods below for your references. If you want to buy a genuine Movado, you must ensure that the product you are getting is authenticate and not an elaborated copy.
Glue on Crown: Cheap replica Movado watches might have the logo actually glued to the end of the crown. These watches have so many other flaws that this won't be your first indication of problems. Make sure the crown shows no sign of glue or uneven edges. Also, the watch should wind smooth and free, without the feel of the movement moving in the case.
Grammar and Spell: Many of these replica Movado watches are made by people whose first language is not English. Because of this, several spelling errors have slipped into the final products and make determining if a watch is counterfeit very easy. Read carefully the dial and the case back. Check the spelling; don't assume that it's correct. We've seen spelling errors like "Eigtheem Jewels","NIMITED EDITION", and "Made in Swiss", which make it obvious that the watch is not genuine.
Fuzzy Printed Dial: Here's where a jeweler's loupe can be very very useful. Look closely via a jeweler's loupe at the dial and date wheel (if present) through the loupe. The printing of genuine Movado wathes should be sharp and defined, not fuzzy around the edges or bleeding between letters. A genuine dial with sloppy printing would be rejected at the factory during inspection. The odds are that, unless the watch has been redialed, if it has irregular print quality it's a counterfeit.
Dirty Dial: There should be no dust on the surface of the dial, and absolutely no fingerprints. Contaminants such as hairs have been known to be found under counterfeit crystals on replica Movado watches. There's no quality control in the replica factories; each replica Movado watch can exhibit a variety of subtle diferences, including such things as contaminants and print quality.
