At present, the counterfeiting of Swiss and Japanese watches is the most serious in the domestic market. Plum blossom suffers equally. Many consumers are worried that the watches they are buying or buying are counterfeit. In order to make it easier for everyone to identify the authenticity of the plum blossom table, the editor arranges the following methods for your reference.
I. Price range
The so-called cheap is not good, good goods are not cheap, the price of imported plum watches in a certain period of time, with temperature. The price of plum watches in China is as low as 4,000 yuan and as high as 80,000 or 90,000. Therefore, we should carefully consider the plum tables that are not in this price range. Especially for those watches with very different prices, if there is no special reason, they may be suspected to be counterfeit imported watches or watches with incorrect origin.
two. Plum watch UNPROFOR card
Plum watch warranty card —- This is very important. You must have a UNPROFOR card with an authorized unit in order to enjoy the nationwide warranty. Otherwise, any one of the plum blossom authorized repair points in the country will not give you a warranty. Most sellers say that the nationwide warranty is not stamped on the UNPROFOR card. It must be counterfeit or parallel imports, and it cannot be covered by the nationwide warranty at all. Here we remind those who only look at the low price. Those Amoy friends must have more than one mind.
three. Watch dial
Some counterfeit plum watches with day and week calendars have this feature: from the calendar window, the outside of the calendar dial is tilted backwards, or the calendar dial is plastic. The weekly calendar dial uses Chinese to indicate the day of the week or the day of the week in English on the right and numbers on the left. Although some fake plum watches have the sWISSMOVT letter on the dial to indicate the Swiss movement, and the letters SHOCKPROOF are used to indicate shock-proof watches, these plum watches usually have more defects and defects on the dial, such as the dial characters are not set properly. The lines and marks are blurred, and the dial characters or trademark letters and patterns are not set tightly on the dial. There are more scratches, discoloration, and night light spots on the surface of the dial, and the night light points are added to the inside of the dial characters. Larger and uneven, there are also inconsistent colors on the dial and on the hands.
All original plum watches, especially men’s watches, must be printed with many English letters on the back of the case, indicating the name of the plum watch, country of manufacture (SWISSMADE Swiss), all-steel or semi-steel waterproof (WATER
RESISTANT), antimagnetic (ANTIMAGETIC), shock or shock absorber names, and engraved with the trademark design for the brand of plum watches. In addition, some numbers are engraved to indicate the movement number and case number of the plum watch. Most of the patterns and letters engraved on the back cover of counterfeit plum watches are very thick and fuzzy, and the case number and movement number are unknown. An original film is usually attached to the back cover of an original plum watch. Swiss-made gold-plated case watches are engraved with letters such as PLAQUEGI0 at the open position of the case (opposite the spring lever on which the strap is attached), indicating that the case is 10 micron gold-plated. Counterfeit watches do not have this mark, and many counterfeit watches use a process such as titanium nitride to impersonate a gold-plated case.
Fives. Watch appearance
From the appearance, the dial and back cover of the original plum watch are clearly marked and complete; the number of diamonds marked on the dial is consistent with the actual number of diamonds in the movement; the materials marked on the back cover are consistent with the materials used in the case; The watch glass is smooth and clear; the outer edges and corners of the case components have no sharpness; the coating has no air bubbles and does not fall off. The counterfeit watch’s dial and back cover are marked with illegible trademarks and brand writing; the number of diamonds marked on the dial is inconsistent with the actual number of diamonds in the movement; the outer edges of the case components are rough, with plating bubbles, peeling or broken parts.
six. Watch movement
From the movement point of view, the plywood or pendant in the movement of the genuine watch is marked with the corresponding trademark nameplate; the movement is stable in the case components; the inside of the movement is clean. Counterfeit watch movements have no trademark inscription on the splint or pendant, or the marks on the trademark movement are rough, fuzzy, or skewed, or simply pasted with small copper pieces; the movement is not clean, and some movements have copper shavings and hair threads , Fingerprints, etc. According to the different details on the watch when purchasing, you can easily identify the authenticity of the plum blossom watch.
Seven. Check mark identification
The identification of plum blossoms can also start from the identification of inspection marks. When buying imported watches, consumers should check the seller’s inspection certificate and whether the number on the laser imitation mark is within the number listed on the certificate.
Eight. Other methods
There are many other identification methods for authenticating plum blossoms, such as using testing instruments to test gold content, travel time accuracy, waterproof performance, watch glass hardness, and genuine and fake diamonds. The measured data is used to verify whether it is consistent with the data and instructions marked on imported watches, and to determine the authenticity.
After passing the above inspection, it is basically possible to determine that a plum blossom watch is genuine. If you are still not assured, you can go to the official service center designated by Plum Blossom to verify the authenticity.
