Like the engine to the motor, the movement is vital to a watch. Knowing to every watch fans, many luxury watch brands use their own movement, and these movement are never appeared in market separately. This makes a great challenge to replica watch industry. So, what kind of movements are used in replica watches?
The first kind movement is self-winding mechanical movement, presented by Rolex watch, which released since 1931, and then the first self-winding watch came out in 1928, powered by an internal mechanism that used the movement of the wearer’s arm. This not only made watch – winding unnecessary, but eliminated the problem of over-winding a watch and harming its mechanism. Rolex was also the first watch company creates a truly waterproof watch – another milestone from novelty to functional timepiece. The watch survived and tested as having kept perfect time during its descent and ascent. With such long time developing, such kind of movement has no secret to the whole industry already, and it ‘s not fashion trend for a rather long time.
The second kind is automatic mechanical movement, this kind of movement enjoy the widest market share currently, for these watches. Straight bands are good bands and kinked bands are bad. First off, if the bracelet doesn’t obviously match the watch, move on down to the next dealer. The bracelet can tell you whether that watch is a real or a fake. Pick up the watch and hold it over a soft surface with the watch facing down. Look at the links in the bracelet. Are they hanging nice and smooth or are they all kinked up? Those bracelet links may stretch a bit over time, but they just don’t kink. If the bracelet is kinked, it’s probably a fake.
The last kind of movement is quartz movement, which is somehow thought to be old fashioned, and low quality, this is absolutely wrong. Quartz movement watches are the most accurate watch movement in market. And even if you put it aside, it will keep working for years, and when you pick it up few years later, you will find the watch has the correct time the same. The only weak point for this kind of watch is the time lasts for years, and needs exchange then. But to most cases, you may want new watches in few years.
