    Hello
    Rolex 16750 has a text that says "not for sale" on its sides.
    Has anybody seen a situation like this before?

    1675 didn’t have white gold surrounds. Yikes.

    and no SN? best case scenario (pun not intended, happy accident) franken watch with after market case, real movement and caseback. The case might be real but modified, still iffy.

    would that make it one of those rare or unusual rolexes that escaped the from the QC dept?

    In addition to the other issues, AFAIK, the hand stack on a 1675 from bottom to top is GMT, hour, min, sec. This one looks like the gmt had is above the hour hand like a GMT II. Also the clyclopse mag looks weak.

    Indeed, the caliber 3075 is visible in the movement photo. :D
