5The text

On the dial of the Rolex is a bit of text that usually is the name and model of the watch but this is there for a reason. Original Rolex watches have these with very fine detail and have been exquisitely printed. But the fake ones will have blurs, splotches, and unevenness. There will also be inconsistent spacing in the font as well as ink bleeding.
