In the image with the fake vs real Omega Seamaster above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its lines crooked.

Once again, if we look at the fake watch, we can notice how its lines at 12 o’clock are crooked, as the helping red lines we drew for the fake item are not parallel.
Also, keep a close eye on all the elements that are present on the dial – any error or inconsistency can be signs of a replica manufactured watch.
