It will be hard to tell by the serial # or other things..ie.. weight, open the back, check for jeweled movements.. do a precious metal check..etc..
. take it to a Rolex dealer..get an expert opinion...

Rolex does not engrave the case back. If it says 24 hours at Daytona, or wording like that, the watch is not real... It's a fake, or as we say more kindly.. It's a replica, and can be bought on any replica watch web site for $30 to $80, for an automatic mov't.,  21J, made in China.
Also, the sub-dials will not function on this watch. A Daytona needs the proper movement to operate the chronograph as it was intended..... To act as a stopwatch.. and measure time... seconds, minutes and hours. This is done by activating pushers at 2 and 4 positions, and the pushers on 21J replicas just don't operate a chron. for the purpose of measuring time. They may move and measure something else, like military time, or the date, but definitely not record seconds, minutes or hours. There are also no manuals on how to operate the Daytona that comes with these replica watches. You should know how this watch functions and how to operate the pushers, and what they do before you should buy and enjoy this type of chronograph watch. It's simple, just take the time to ask people in the know... how the daytona works, what the sub-dials measure and how to use them, etc. In no time you'll understand the operation of this beautifully made watch. Unfortunately, a daytona is out of reach for most of us... That's why seeking out a quality rolex replica for much less money is the way to go if you love this watch... A quality one can look, feel, and function just as good as the authentic Daytona, and you won't have to out out over $10K to get one.

Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

The quickest way to spot a fake Rolex is by the second hand. Is the second hand ticking or sweeping. If it's ticking it's fake. A real Rolex's second hand moves around the dial in one continuous movement.

Check for a small engraved crown on the crystal at 6 o'clock. Most fakes will have something similar. The difference is that the crown on a real one is almost impossible to see by just your eye.

Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.

Most other ways relate to newer Rolex watches.
Hope this helps and hope it's the real deal.

SOURCE: how can i find out if my rolex is a fake?

Hi, please ignore the above for it has no relation to your question. The Daytona does not have a date window so would not have a magnification window. If your Daytona has anything engraved on the rear of it, its highly likely to be fake, as Rolex did not engrave the rear of their watches. The second hand on your watch should be the small sub dial at the 6 o'clock position, this moves round continuously. The large second hand should also move round the face once the top pusher is pushed, pushing it again will stop it. Pressing the bottom pusher will reset all the needles back to 12, except the 6 o'clock dial, as this is seconds. If you remove the bracelet from the watch, you should have a series of numbers in between the lugs of the watch, where the strap would of been (before you removed it) At the top, (12 o'clock position) it will have the model reference number. For instance ROLEX DESIGN 116509 On the other side, at 6 o'clock, it will have a serial number, for instance F520773. The F number is what dates the watch.. F is 2005. If you wish to email me the numbers on your Rolex, I will check it for you, free of charge. Email is tom@luxurysauce.com If you have opened the watch, you should also have the watches model reference i.e 116509 stamped into the case back. I can arrange repair for this watch, whatever movement it has inside. Website is luxury sauce dot com, you can contact me via the website.

There's no way an engraved winner rolex 24 at daytona 1992 could be real? why would counterfieters bother putting such an obvious indentifier of a fake on their fakes?


Hi,
There has been a Daytona with similar to this on the back that was presented in 1992 ..but....... If your watch has AD DAYTONA on the back it is certainly a fake and sadly worthless.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.
  • Take a look at the second hand. Is it ticking or is it sweeping? If it's ticking, that's your fake. A Rolex second hand sweeps around in one continuous motion. But beware, as of 2005, the good fakes have caught up to this technology.
  • Look for the small engraved crown at the 6 o'clock mark on the crystal. Most fakes will have some sort of large, obvious version of a crown, but this mark on a real Rolex is almost impossible to spot with the naked eye.
  • Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.
  • Most new Rolex models have an added model number engraved at the end of the watch end-link. This engraving includes the band model and two tiny Rolex crowns. Your good fakes will have something similar, but not all three indicators.
  • If you're being sold an authentic Rolex (in good condition and in perfect working order) for anything less than $500, become suspicious. If it's in nice shape, it doesn't really lose a lot of appreciation, and in some cases, it increases in value.

  • Best regards. Jewel
