Graham is a very unique and interesting watch brand. In recent years, it has created some one the boldest and recognizable left-sided crown chronographs that also impress with their extremely modern designs. One of its best timepieces is the Graham Chronofighter 2CCAU.B09A which strikes as a stylish watch with an irresistible carbon “trigger”, an intriguing personality when worn on the wrist and with a strong ability of empowering its owner with sophistication and brilliance.

Authentic Graham Chronofighter

The Graham watch company was founded in 1995 by Ernst Thomke, Pierre-André Finazzi and Eric Loth. At first, it was called Les Monts S.A and its concept was to revive the best works of iconic British watchmakers. But in 1998 the firm released two new brands: Graham and Arnold&Son. Then in 2010, Arnold&Son was sold and the company changed its name to Graham London. One of the initial founders, Eric Loth is still leading the brand’s success.

The name Graham was inspired by ‘Honest George Graham’, a British watchmaker born in 1673 who invented the mercury pendulum, brought important improvements to the pendulum clocks, developed the 28-day long case dead beat escapement in precision regulator clocks and even built the most complex and precise planetarium at that time. His work was significant for the evolution of modern watchmaking and calendar complications.

I am a huge fan of Graham watches. I find their designs and choice of materials simply fascinating. One of the most interesting particularities of their models is the chronograph trigger on the left hand side of the case. It has a distinctively bold and modern look, especially because it is made of carbon and the black color highlights its forms very stylishly.

For me, the Graham Chronofighter 2CCAU.B09A is the best example of sophistication. With a modern color choice of yellowish numerals and bluish hands and indexes, a masculine black carbon fiber case and a fashionable choice of straps, this watch steals your attention in a heartbeat. It’s beautiful, fashionable and complicated. This is what I love the most in a watch and also the reason why I got myself a replica of the Graham Chronofighter 2CCAU.B09A. Below I will share with you my impressions on my new Chronofighter knockoff.

The particularity:

Graham as a brand is obsessed by trigger actuated chronographs. It’s the brand’s meaning and quintessence. There is a logical reason for fitting a trigger on a chronograph watch. The thumb is the fastest acting finger so it has the best control over the chrono function. When the watch has a left side trigger you don’t even need to look down at the watch to operate the stopwatch. Its location and design are intuitive, especially on the Graham Chronofighter which has been shaped so that it fits the thumb perfectly. The anatomically constructed trigger allows you to measure elapsed time without interrupting your eye focus on the task that is being performed.

The design:

No one can argue this. The Graham Chronofighter 2CCAU.B09A has a stunningly masculine look. It is the right choice for modern men with a very active and bold lifestyle. Nevertheless, its rugged aesthetics are nicely balanced by well-studied curves and fresh color accents. The choice of materials is also very unique and accentuates its distinctively unique look.

The dial:

The Graham Chronofighter is available in an array of dial colors, but I opted for the black dial with yellowish numerals and blue accents. I find this version very interesting and refreshing. My replica watch looks pretty authentic. It has that beautiful matte finish dial, the lovely yellowish numerals in the correct font, the bluish gradations and hands, the correct wording and markings, but something is slightly different. At the 3 o’clock position there should have been a small seconds display, but instead there is a 12 hours subdial. And at 6 o’clock there should have been a 30-minutes counter. Instead there is a 60 second subdial. Another small difference that I dislike very much is the date window. The font is different. On my imitation watch, the white numbers are slimmer and more faded than on the authentic Graham.

The case:

This model is considered an oversized watch as it measures 47 mm in diameter so it is not a watch that would suit anyone. You got to love big watches so you can effortlessly wear the Chronofighter. And it is not just its case that goes a bit over the top. Let’s not forget that this timepiece sports a considerably large trigger that adds up to its measurements. But even though it is a big timepiece, it is very comfortable to wear. It feels very nice on the wrist. What I find different about my replica is the shape of the bezel. On the authentic watch, the bezel is domed whereas on my replica, the bezel is flatter. Also, the left side trigger is designed differently. The original one has a beautiful geometrical pattern printed on it whereas on my clone the same design is deeply embossed in the metal. The screws on the trigger are also different and the crown is smaller and slimmer. It just doesn’t look right. Taking a look at the caseback doesn’t offer too much satisfaction either as the real Graham Chronofighter comes with a see-through caseback that reveals the G1747 self-winding movement, but on my knockoff there is a solid black caseback engraved with the company’s name and logo.

graham rubber strap

The strap:

The Graham Chronofighter comes in a large choice of straps. Some are vintage leathers and others are modern rubber bands. I went for a rubber strap when I ordered my replica as this is a more practical and comfier option, especially on an oversized watch. The rubber band on my imitation Graham looks very nice and feels very durable. It comes with the distinctive pin buckle and a square shaped pin that interfaces with rectangular shaped holes. And last but not least, it has all the correct markings.

The movement:

The authentic Chronofighter comes with the stunning G1747 automatic chronograph movement which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph (4Hz), has 25 jewels, and offers a power reserve of 48 hours. To understand how exquisite this mechanism is we need to mention that the oscillating mass is adorned with a côtes de Genève motif and blued screws, and the mainplate is decorated with perlage. It goes without saying that my replica watch has an inferior automatic movement. It is boosted by a Japanese automatic mechanism that only tells time and shows the correct date, but does not have a working chronograph.

The Graham Chronofighter 2CCAU.B09A is a stunning watch. It looks amazingly stylish and delivers impressive functionality on the wrist. One of its biggest assets is the unique left side chronograph trigger that enhances both sophistication and ease of use. Being so appealing and fashionable, it is quite understandable why I decided to get a replica of this timepiece, but I have to say that the clone doesn’t even come close to the original thing. The huge difference between the subdials, the caseback and the design of the trigger makes it easy to spot as a fake. Sadly, this time I am not completely satisfied with my replica watch purchase, but I hope this review will help my readers choose wisely when they do their online replica shopping.

Rolex Deepsea is the largest watch in Rolex collection to date. Although I don’t like bulky watches, this timepiece is one of my favorites Rolex watches. It’s pretty heavy, though! If you haven’t wore a big watch before, this can be a bit awkward until your wrist will gets used to the weight. After a while the watch will feel like it is perfectly sized and weighted on your wrist

Dial

One of the major differences between authentic Rolex watch and my Rolex Deepsea replica is the gradient dial. 2018 edition genuine Deepsea watch has nice blue to black gradient dial, while my imitation has black dial without any gradient. The word “DEEPSEA” is correctly positioned and has the right green color font. Another problem is date display. The number is just not centered and aligned a bit to the left of the center of date window.

Bezel

The bezel of this Deepsea imitation watch looks like it’s made from ceramic, but the markings are not as deep and “crisp” as on authentic Rolex. I was relieved to get my knockoff with this kind of bezel. I was very afraid to get one with simple aluminum ring bezel – this would be a dead giveaway.

Case

The case is a bulky 44 mm in diameter and also very thick. This Rolex replica watch features helium escape valve at 9 o’clock position on the side of the case and the winding crown with rubber o-ring. The store I bought it from warned me not to dive with this diving watch. Their warranty doesn’t cover any water damage, so swimming is also out of the question.

Band

Oysterlock clasp was copied to perfection from the outside, however there is no micro-adjustment system. If one wants to shorten the band length, the only way to do it is to unscrew the screws and take off one or two links.

Movement

Authentic Rolex Deepsea comes with Perpetual Calibre 3235. Rolex states that patented Chronergy escapement and Parachrom hairspring features of this mechanism makes the watch resistant to magnetism and mechanical shocks. My replica does come with automatic movement, but there are no markings on it, so there is no way to tell where or by whom it was manufactured. But hey, the watch is pretty accurate and the second hand sweeps smoothly and I don’t really care if it’s Swiss, Japanese or Chinese made mechanism. Power reserve is decent, approximately 30 hours.

Although this replica looks very impressive and you might not spot the differences at first glance, the fact that blue dial gradient is missing and the date alignment flaw are too obvious mistakes. Can’t recommend.

The Submariner has a splendid history that began in 1953 when Rolex decided to create a revolutionary diver’s watch never seen before. Equipped with an outstanding automatic movement and encapsulated by the legendary waterproofed Oyster case, the Submariner offers extreme precision at depths of up to 100 meters. After 60 years on continuous innovations, current Submariner designs preserve many of the classic aesthetic details of the first Submariner because its style and beauty are truly timeless.

Genuine Rolex Submariner 16613 Watch

GENUINE ROLEX

Rolex Submariner is a watch that exudes style and elegance. Even though it looks simple, it has an understated sophistication that allows a smooth transition between your everyday companion and a sturdy sports watch. Its technical specifications emphasize its role as a superior wristwatch with modern connotations. The 40 mm diameter case comes with a large crown guard and a scratch proof sapphire crystal, a unidirectional bezel and a 2.5x magnifying lens over the date display.  The color options for the dial, bezel, case and band also vary greatly turning the Submariner into a very modern and stylish accessory.

One of the most intriguing Rolex models is the one with reference 16613 which was actually introduced at BaselWorld just three decades after the Submariner’s debut. Launched in 1983, the Rolex Submariner 16613 came with a very appealing aesthetic particularity. It was made from steel and gold, offering an extra touch of luxury and refinement. Another particularity of the 16613 is that it comes with a bold colored bezel and most often with a champagne dial or a diamonds setting. They even came up with a distinctive name to mark its overstated aesthetic details. A Rolex 16613 with a champagne or silver dial and diamonds markers is called a Serti dial. And believe me, it doesn’t get more extravagant and sophisticated than the Submariner 16613 Serti dial.

Fake Rolex Submariner watch model 16613

This being said, I think you can understand why I just had to have my very own Rolex Submariner Silver Serti replica watch. Serti is actually the French term for “setting”. In this case, it is a diamonds setting. Two-tone Rolex knockoffs are among my favorite timepieces and I just love the affordable yet luxurious allure they have due to their steel and gold finish. So it is really to surprise that I bought myself a Rolex Submariner replica watch with the notorious Serti dial. I am a huge fan of contrasts so I chose the silver dial to emphasize the two tone band. If you are curious to know my thoughts on this replica watch continue reading my review.

Case

The case of the Submariner 16613 Silver Serti measures 40 mm and it is the essence of Rolex’s genius craftsmanship. Constructed from a solid block of stainless steel and decorated with 18 ct yellow gold strips between the 6 and 12 o’clock and the bracelet, it strikes as an elegant yet sturdy case. And let’s not forget that it can be submerged up to depths of 300 meters without compromising its inner mechanism. This superior water resistance is ensured by the triple lock innovation that is integrated into the winding crown system. To complement its sleek design, the case is adorned with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal that has a 2.5X Cyclops lens at the 3 o’clock position, over the date window. Basically, everything about this watch screams extraordinary. Of course, I am aware that my replica isn’t and couldn’t be as extraordinary as the real watch, but it still is a very good watch. The case has the same size as the genuine one, it comes with the big crown guards, a correctly designed winding crown and the glass is scratch proof sapphire crystal with the 2.5X magnifying lens. It basically has everything it needs for being a very authentic looking imitation Rolex case.

Bezel

The bezel of the 16613 Rolex Submariner is bold and modern. It impresses with its deep blue and yellow gold color combo. The background of the bezel is a stunning matte blue whereas the markers and indexes are yellow gold color. And at the 12 o’clock position has a luminescent white dot over a yellow gold triangle. Even though, the bezel of my replica watch looks pretty good, I am not very impressed with it. It has that beautiful blue color as the genuine watch has, but the yellow gold on the markers and indexes is not the same. On my replica it is in a lighter and fader shade of yellow gold that under bright light has a very intense white reflection. Luckily, it has a couple of things right- it rotates unidirectional as the real one does and it makes the same retching sound when you turn it.

Dial

The Silver Serti dial is simply stunning. The matte silver iridescent dial plate is elegantly decorated with 8 round diamonds markers at 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 o’clock while at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock there are 3 bluish sapphire markers. To top this exquisite dial design gold and white luminescent hands have been added. At first glance, my replica appears to be identical to the original timepiece, but when you take a closer look you see that even though the markers are very nice, the 3 bluish sapphire markers aren’t actually sapphire. These appear to be blue coated with a gold outline. If you look closely and if you know a thing or two about these watches then you will find this detail really frustrating.

Movement

The authentic Rolex Submariner Serti dial is equipped with a 3135 Manufacture Rolex automatic movement that has a +2/-2 second per day precision and a 48 hours power reserve. With a bidirectional self-winding via Perpetual rotor and a Paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, the watch ensures the following functions: centre hour, minute and seconds hands, instantaneous date with rapid setting and stop-seconds for precise time setting. It is the best diver’s watch out there. No questions about it. Naturally, my replica isn’t equipped with the same type of movement. Instead, it comes with a 21 jewels Japanese automatic movement. It keeps pretty accurate time and the power reserve holds up for about a day or so. This is quite nice for a replica.

Band

The Submariner 16613 comes with an Oyster, flat three-piece links bracelet manufactured from a combination of Oyster steel and 18 ct yellow gold. It is both stylish and sturdy, without compromising comfort. And to complete its flawlessness it also comes with a 18 ct yellow gold folding Oyster safety clasp with a Glidelock extension system. It sounds pretty neat, isn’t it? Well, my replica doesn’t have all those fancy stuff, but it does manage to look nice and legit. It is constructed from a very resistant stainless steel and has that shiny beautiful 18 ct gold middle which is actually gold plated, not full gold. And the clasp has all the correct design details and markings.

Overall, my Rolex Submariner 16613 Silver Serti replica is quite nice and it serves it purpose. It comes with a very good Japanese automatic movement; it has a nicely designed dial and bezel, correct size and markings. It looks and feels authentic, even though it has a few minor flaws. But to the untrained eye it is a just a beautiful timepiece that works nicely.

There is nothing that echoes fame, wealth and prestige as the name Rolex does. You don’t have to be an expert or a fan to know how great this brand is and how exceptional its watches are. High quality, revolutionary technology, and innovative design- these are the key factors of its continuous success. Over the decades, Rolex has produced some of the most iconic, versatile and functional watches in the history of modern horology. Every timepiece is a proof of its extraordinary sense of innovation.

GENUINE GMT MASTER

Authentic GMT Master Watch

The GMT Master II is one of its most emblematic designs. Created in the 1950s especially for Pan Am pilots the watch was intended as a superior instrument able to display the time in different time zones. Even though many variations and improvements have been brought to the original Oyster Perpetual GMT, the classic design and basic features are pretty much the same even nowadays.

fake Rolex GMT Master II dial

To understand how ground breaking the GMT Master II was when it first came out, we need to mention the fact that it was one of the first timepieces that could tell time in two different time zones at once. Its uniqueness was that it didn’t have just a fourth hand that circled the dial in 24 hours, but also a rotating bezel with 24 hour markers that could be used for controlling the second time zone. And so Rolex created a masterpiece that was acclaimed and loved by all globetrotters, not just by air pilots.

24 hours GMT hand

To use the GMT function you need to: rotate the bezel until the marker points to 12 o’clock, set the GMT to the current Greenwich Mean Time, change the hour hands and set it to the current timezone. When you pull the winding crown in the second position and you rotate it, the minutes move with the GMT hand and when it is in the first position, the hours hand moves by itself. This way, the GMT hand will show the GMT reference time and by using the bezel, you can set the second time zone.

Date window with cyclop

One of the Rolex GMT Master II models that are most sought after is the one with two-tone case and black dial. This version comes with a 40 mm case and is manufactured from 904L steel and 18 karats gold. The reason why it is so popular is, of course, the 18 k gold. Elegant and opulent, the gold and steel case combination is the detail that marks it as a glamorous and precious timepiece. Simply said, it is the right choice for making a bold statement wherever you go. This is why I had to buy one for my Rolex replica collection. A while back I ordered it online and I have been wearing it quite a lot lately so I decided to review it and share my impressions with you.

The case

The case of the authentic Rolex GMT Master II is built to last. Manufactured from superior quality materials such as extremely durable 904L stainless steel and 18 ct gold, this watch is by all means a very resistant and refined timepiece that suggests richness and elegance. Its 40 mm case is complemented by a highly functional 24 hour graduated bezel. This bezel is part of its complex second time zone feature. It is used to set the different time zone. To ensure perfect waterproofness up to 100 meter this flawless case is adorned with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal that has a beautiful shine over the iconic Rolex dial. By taking a very close look at the case of my replica watch I realized that it is very similar to the authentic one. The size, the shape and markings of the case, bezel and winding crown are the same. The only thing I would have to point out as being different is the gold on the watch. But this is perfectly understandable. No one will manufacture a replica watch from actual gold because it would be too expensive. My replica isn’t manufactured from solid 18 ct gold and stainless steel. It is all solid stainless steel with plated 18 ct gold on the golden parts.

The dial

The timeless personality of the Rolex GMT Master II is defined by its flawless dial. Even though many things about this model were changed over the years, the basic dial design remains the same. Distinctively, the black dial is a beautiful interpretation of the GMT Master II. The elegant matte dial with sophisticated white glow in the dark and 18 ct gold markers and hands make a stunning contrast with the green 24-hour hand.   And at 3 o’clock we have the classic date window with the 2.5 X magnifying lens. I have studied very hard the dial of my replica trying to find some differences between its design and the one of the original watch. I was able to find just two. Firstly, the minutes indexes and writing on the dial which were supposed to be white are gold color. Secondly, the Oyster Perpetual Date writing is a bit smaller on my replica. The rest appears to be the same.

The movement

The GMT Master II watch comes with a Caliber 3186 movement which is an automatic movement designed and manufactured entirely by Rolex. Certified as a Swiss Chronometer, this very reliable mechanism features a Perpetual Rotor for bidirectional self-winding and a Parachrom hairspring for better resistance to temperature variation and shocks. Besides these innovations, the Caliber 3186 movement also supports the 24-hour timezone and date function. The actual uniqueness of this movement is that it allows you to set the new timezone without interfering with your reference time. You got to admit, it is hard to beat the Rolex in house Caliber 3186. Not even the best replica could match it. But there are still some very good imitations out there that offer great time accuracy and the smooth GMT function. My replica is one of them. It is quite precise and it has a functional second time zone hand thus allowing you to keep track of the time in a different time zone.

The bracelet

The case of the Rolex GMT Master II is paired up with a beautiful three-link two tone bracelet with a folding Oysterlock easylink clasp. The actual bracelet is manufactured from 940L solid stainless steel and 18 ct gold. By using these two high quality materials the watch is considered one of the most expensive and refined Rolex models. Of course, the bracelet of my replica isn’t manufactured from the same materials. Instead, it is made from 316 full solid stainless steel plated with 18 ct gold where the actual gold should be. I am overall happy with the bracelet because it feels quite comfortable and authentic. It is sturdy and imposing on the wrist giving you the impression that it weights the same as the genuine one, plus it has a very nice shine and finishing.

With its contemporary and manly design, the Rolex GMT Master II is a magnet for the traveling enthusiast. Its versatility and functionality embodies sophistication and class so it is understandable why so many people want it and instead of spending a fortune on the original one they choose a good quality replica. This is what I did and overall I am very happy with my GMT Master II replica. It is a very well made imitation, except the font color issue, that looks and feels authentic, plus it keeps very good time.

Among the classic, fashionable and well balanced Rolex watches lies one very spectacular model, one that is definitely an eye catcher. This big, bold and outstanding timepiece is sophisticated as it is utilitarian. It is the professional time keeping instrument used by the skipper of a yacht. Rolex Yacht-Master II is its name and it comes with a unique and innovative programmable regatta countdown flyback chronograph developed and produced exclusively by Rolex.

Genuine Rolex

The first Rolex Yacht Master II was launched in 2007 and it was derived from the 1992’s Yacht Master which didn’t have the programmable countdown timer or any useful yachting function, as a matter of fact. But the new and improved Yacht Master II was a true professional yachting watch boosting a programmable countdown timer and a flyback chronograph, available in yellow and white gold. In 2013, Rolex unveiled the first version of the popular regatta-countdown chronograph watch in a 904L stainless steel case with a blue Cerachrom bezel insert. The model was a success both among yachting enthusiasts and watches collectors.

The distinctive feature of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II is the regatta function offered exclusively by Rolex that allows its wearer to program the countdown timer from 1 to 10 minutes thanks to its incorporated mechanical memory that can be reset to the same countdown duration used previously. Another detail that makes the regatta such a useful yachting innovation is the fact that the countdown can be synchronized on the fly. You can adjust the countdown even after it started. This is a very helpful function for yacht skippers at the beginning of a yachting race. Actually, “regatta” is the name used for boat races so, obviously, the main purpose of the Yacht Master II is to be used during yachting races, to ensure a perfect start at the beginning of the competition.

I am surely not very fond of boats or boat races, to be more exact. But one thing is clear. I love a beautifully design watch that comes with an unusual complication. And the Rolex Yacht Master II is quite extraordinary. I especially like the stainless steel one due to its simple yet captivating contrasts. The immaculate white dial, vibrant blue dials, red accents and shiny silver case are magnificent. This is why buying a Rolex Yacht II in silver replica was one of the most rewarding things I ever did. I absolutely love this watch and you will soon discover why.

The case

The Rolex Yacht-Master II is a big watch. No one can deny this. Its 44 mm case makes it a very fickle watch. This huge Rolex isn’t for everyone. But once you get passed its big proportions you notice the beautiful Oyster case manufactured from a solid block of corrosion resistant 904L steel water resistant to 100 meters. The watch comes with the patented Triplock screw-down winding crown and a smooth integrated crown guard. The big, bright, bold bidirectional rotating bezel is one of the interesting details of the Yacht-Master II as it is the first watch to have the bezel directly connected to the movement. It is actually called a “Ring Command Bezel” and it is an essential part of the regatta chronograph. It lets you program the desired countdown duration. It is made from extra-hard corrosion resistant ceramic, it has engraved numerals and the inscription “Yacht-Master II” coated in platinum in the lower part of the bezel. As all Rolex watches, the Yacht-Master II comes with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Similarly, my Rolex replica has a 44 mm case crafted from solid stainless steel. It comes with the triple lock screw down crown, the same style of crown guard and the bidirectional blue ceramic bezel that features the correct font and size for the numbers and text. It even has a sapphire crystal. Everything looks and feels genuine.

The dial

This Rolex has a very unique design and the dial is a real attention grabber. It is without a doubt one of the most unconventional watches Rolex has ever produced. The matte white lacquer dial, the sharply contrasting deep blue hands, the Chromalight appliqued hour markers, the red seconds hand and the bright blue bezel are a magnificent combination of style and functionality. I like the fact that my replica has everything in the right place, in the correct size and font. The squared luminescent hour markers are correctly replicated, the central subdial has the right numbering and colors, and the wording on the dial is also exact. But I have noticed a couple of differences. First, the minutes and hours hands are not blue as on the original one and secondly the small seconds dial is silver and not bright blue, plus the numbers on it are different. These things are the main discrepancies I have noticed on my knockoff.

The movement

The Yacht Master II comes with a Caliber 4161 COSC certified self-winding movement that has a distinctive column-wheel chronograph. At the heart of the watch there is another exclusive Rolex innovation, an oscillator that has a blue hairspring made of Parachrom, a special alloy that is very resistant to magnetic fields, temperature variations and shocks. Of course, the biggest quality of this Rolex movement is that it supports the extremely complicated regatta function. Even though my watch is just a replica it still has a very good Japanese movement that is accurate and enhances a working subdial. Its functionality is not as intricate and spectacular as the original one, but come again I don’t really need a programmable countdown timer that will ensure the perfect start at the beginning of boat races. Oh, and let’s not forget that the original one costs over $18,000 and mine was only a couple hundreds.

The bracelet

The timepiece has a solid link Oyster bracelet crafted from solid stainless steel fitted with the exclusive Rolex Oyster safety clasp and the patented Easylink comfort extension system that allows you to make the band bigger by about 0.5 cm. The design of the Oyster bracelet reveals polished center links and satin finish outer links with polished edges. Similarly, my fake Rolex watch has a stainless steel bracelet with links that are shiny in the center and matte on the outer part, and, of course, the very useful extension. The bracelet feels very comfy and elegant on the wrist. It has a very authentic look and weight.

The Rolex Yacht Master II is a very technical watch with a very unique design. It is the kind of timepiece that demonstrates why Rolex is one of the best watches brands in the world. So, naturally, every watch passionate people or person with a fascination for beautiful things wants to have one. I am a huge fan of this design and I was looking for a good replica of this model for a while. My Yacht Master II knockoff is fairly good. It has a very good automatic movement, great functionality. It is manufactured from good quality materials, has the correct wording and sizes, but has a couple of differences that I was able to spot from the first moment. Being a very unusual and not very popular model, people are not so familiar with its design so coming across someone that can actually spot these differences is very unlikely.
