In most cases, you can spot fakes based on the movements. One should avoid buying a watch without seeing the movement. This eliminates most of the fakes out there because most don't bother trying to replicate the movement's look .

As an aside, the weight of a watch is not a good marker of authenticity. A fake Rolex can weight as much as or more than a real one.
