Defining DLC and PVD

DLC or diamond-like carbon is an amorphous carbon material applied to other materials, such as steel, for quality. These coatings are desirable because of their hardness, wear resistance, and slickness. PVP, known as physical vapor deposition, is a method that produces coatings and a thin film on metals and glass. The process is usually more environmentally friendly than other coating processes. Rolex uses the coating for its impact strength and scratch resistance.

How to Tell if Your Rolex Is Real?

If you want to know how to tell if a Rolex is real or not, here are obvious ways. First, check for the serial number against the certificate of authenticity. Luxury watches with no serial numbers are fake. With the Rolex sports watch, you can find the serial number on the inner bezel ring that surrounds the dial.

Secondly, ticking sounds from the watch indicate that it is not an authentic Rolex. All of the brand's watch collections have a powered automatic movement that is soundless. Listen carefully for any ticking from the watch you are buying to prevent fraud and losing your money. Examine the watch for a tiny crown etching on the glass. The laser-etched crown should be at six o'clock. If not, it is a sure red flag.
