When shopping for a designer watch (especially if you’re looking for a good deal) you need to proceed with extreme caution to avoid being sold a fake. Obviously we’re not talking about hitting up your local flea market at the weekend — those fakes should be pretty obvious. There are, however, numerous outfits out there who produce counterfeit timepieces designed specifically to fool the high end of the market. Now, thanks to Watches2U,we can bring you an infographic showing those things to look out for when shopping for something as prestigious as a Omega, Rolex and Tag Heuer. Potential red flags include logo placement, lettering, weight and packaging – not to mention the price.

Remember, kids. If it seems too good to be true…

Not NYC, not LA.
