How to Tell if Your Watch is Fake or Real?



In terms of popularity, you simply cannot go wrong with a good watch, as they make the perfect gifts at any time of the year, for any reason you can think of. Watches come in all shapes and sizes, and what’s more, as you probably know, some watches are far more valuable than others. Some people actually consider watches as investments rather than purchases, because, if you choose the right watch, it will hold its value for many years, and may even increase in value. When it comes to luxury watches however, watches such as Rolex, Tag Heuer, Cartier are some of the famous names that instantly spring to mind. Sadly, because these watches are so popular, there are fake watches being sold that are being marketed as genuine, which is obviously far from ideal. If you’re on the lookout for a quality new watch consider the brand MaVie and below are some tips to help you ensure that your watch is indeed the real deal.

You have examined it in person – Whilst browsing the web is absolutely fantastic for shopping purchases, when buying something without seeing it in person, there is always the risk of you not quite getting the product you may have been hoping for. For example, on the web, you may come across a picture of a watch that makes it look immaculate, yet when you order it and it arrives on your doorstep, it may not look anywhere near as good as it did in the picture. Ideally you should examine the watch in person before buying it, or alternatively, you should purchase it from a reputable supplier.

It’s heavy – If your watch is heavy, generally that is a very good sign, as weight is a sign of quality. MaVie Eclipse Chronograph timepiece watches for men, for example, are pretty heavy when compared with other watches, because they are made from quality materials and metals. Fake watches are made from cheap and poor quality materials, meaning that they will weigh far less than real watches, so if your watch weighs less than you may have been expecting, this could be a sign that the watch is not genuine.

It was a “great deal” – In life, you get what you pay for, and quality certainly doesn’t come cheap. If you come across a watch that is being sold for much less than the RRP suggests it should be sold, don’t be lured in, as in the world of watches, though there are very good deals to be had, there is no such thing as a deal which is too good to be true. Quality watches use expensive materials, they are handcrafted and they have huge amounts of work that goes into creating each one, and this is reflected in the price.

MaVie watches are made to precision in the USA with genuine Swiss parts and each timepiece is beautifully crafted and backed by an international warranty and 70+ years of watchmaking experience. Once you purchase a MaVie watch you will fully appreciate it's beauty, design and reliability for years to come. Take a closer look at MaVie watches today.
