Is this Rolly Real??

Post by Artman » Thu Mar 28, 2019 4:24 pm

Posted this next door. Ladies watch. If it is, I'll get it for a steal. If it isn't you will save me from humiliation. What do you think??

I thought that the end links and bracelet looked ill fitted in the original picture. Although the finish is in much better shape on jaws picture, one can see a lot of stretch and bad fitment there also. Where the original seems more like a high polish job, the Walmart Rolex appears to have a brushed finish. Could be authentic with a hack job on that as well, I suppose. Just don't know.

I dunno, Artie. What's the story here? Where'd you find it? What's the price? Like Mr. Bloke said at WLs, it's probably a vintage men's watch, particularly since it's handwind, making it pretty old indeed. Normally, I'd think that something like this probably isn't really a big counterfeit target, but then, guys in China are counterfeiting Rolex movements, so this might not be a very heavy lift for them.

I couldn't even say if, if this is real, it's worth a whole lot. Normally, anything with the Rolex coronet has some value.
