Rolex sweeping second hand

10/15/2009 13:55

You probably have heard about this feature and wonder how well it is replicated. The second hand of mechanical watches doesn't actually sweep, but ticks very rapidly. Genuine Rolex second hands "tick" with a rate of six times per second and if you look very closely at it you will see these little "jumps". Cheap replica Rolex sites sell low grade replica watches with quartz movements (battery operated). The second hand of these replica watches ticks once every second so you can clearly observe these "jumps". High quality fake Rolex watches always come with mechanical movements, thus their second hand sweeps. However it isn't as smooth as in genuine Rolex watches: it ticks with a rate of three to four times per second.
