How to find a genuine gem of a watch
As with many luxury items, there is always the danger of buying an inferior copy of the original item. Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, there are sometimes counterfeited and cheap replicas can be found.
There are a few ways to tell what is a genuine U-Boat watch from a fake.
The unique and precise movement of a U-Boat is difficult to replicate. The Swiss Valjoux 7750 is a great example.
- The screws are often a different colour and you can check this against images in the official U-Boat website or catalogue
- Patterned or brushed metal inside is also a give away to a fake version
- No visible Swiss ETA engraving
- Different spacing between the ‘9’ and the U-Boat wording. They are usually very close together and the fake versions often miss this point
- Fake watchmakers and sellers miss the importance of the strap. Most phoney watches have a basic black strap whereas the real ones do not. You can often spot a fake U-Boat because the strap does not have the three different sized holes where the strap is hand-sewn.
The genuine leather strap sells for more than 200 Euros and the metal clasp is engraved with U-Boat on it. For some reason, fake versions don’t bother with such details.You want to ensure that it s a genuine article.
