How to Spot a Fake Replica Omega Watch?
You can use a few approaches to identify a replica or fake Omega, I list some methods below for your references. If you want to buy a genuine Omega, you must ensure that the product you are getting is authenticate and not an elaborated copy.
Luminosity: Most Omega watches use a substance called LumiNova to provide the glow to the dial and hands that allows you to read the time in darkness. Replica Omega watches normally have a poor quality luminous material applied compared to a genuine watch. The replica won't glow as brightly or as long when charged and viewed in a low light situation. It's also common that replica Omega watches will have missing luminous materials and not glow at all. Use a flashlight to "charge" a watch and observe the brightness of the dial and hands in the dark.
Grammar and Spell: Many of these replica Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega watches. There's no quality control in the replica factories; each replica Omega watch can exhibit a variety of subtle diferences, including such things as contaminants and print quality.
