How To Identify The Authenticity Of Certina Watches
Observe that some counterfeit plum watches with day and week calendars on Certina watch dials have such characteristics: from the calendar window, the outside of the calendar dial is tilted backwards, or the calendar dial is plastic of. 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. Some counterfeit Certina watches are printed with the sWISSMOVT letter on the dial to indicate the Swiss movement, and the letters SHOCKPROOF are used to indicate shock-proof watches. The setting is not correct, the lines and marks are blurred, the dial letters or trademark letters and patterns are not set tightly on the dial, there are more scratches, discoloration, and night light spots on the dial, and the night light spots are added to the dial. On the side, the night light point is large and uneven, and there are also inconsistencies in the color of the night light point on the dial and the night light point on the hands.
Observe the back of the Certina watch case. All original Certina watches, especially men’s watches, must be printed with many English letters on the case back, indicating the name of the Certina watch, and country of production (SWISSMADE Swiss) , All steel or semi-steel waterproof (WATER RESISTANT), anti-magnetic (ANTIMAGETIC), shock or shock absorber name, and engraved with the trademark design for the plum watch brand. 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 Certina 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 the original Certina 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.
