Just flip the friggin thing over and look at the movement, most don't have the crystal back and if they do one look and you can tell.

I thought AP ROOs had solid case backs?

Also, many, many replicas use sapphire crystals.
All royal oaks from 2015 or 2016 have display backs

90% do not use sapphire crystals, the better fakes use coated mineral glass, most use Acrylic watch glass. if you suspect someone is trying to sell you a fake ask them to run a key over the face of the watch if its real they won't hesitate.

The other telltale sign is the fake won't have a ceramic crown and pushers
