If i remember correctly, the fake has no real screw in the case, it's just a decorative thing. Also the band will be different as well as the lug screw, well the non existent of lug screw that is, they use spring bar i think. Looking at the back of the case, the fake one does not have real hex screw that says 'Do not Unscrew'. Do a search on google, there's a review on fake B&R (i didn't believe it either). The one they reviewing is the SS version, i think the PVD one still safe.

The PVD fakes will have a poor PVD coating, really noticable on the outside of the ring on the face. The coating gets really weak & uneven around the ring, looking almost like overspray instead of true black. Also, the rubber straps on the fakes are really stiff, more like plastic instead of soft silicone rubber. The fakes DO have a hex-screw lug, just like the real deal.
