    calling the Rolex nerds…
    Based on the differences of the As, would you say dial isn’t original?
    Thanks gang.

    Perhaps a fake.

    It has been “authenticated”. Whatever that means. I’m guessing they confirmed all the gold parts are indeed gold and the movement is uh, inside the case.

    Fonts on dial is a little wacky from my inexperienced eyes.

    Rolex themselves are the only ones that can officially authenticate their watches

    I doubt Rolex can match EBay authentication team.
    /s

    Back to the photos above folks.
    Replaced dial or genuine?

    If I compare with a 116520 I used to have, there are tinny differences in numbers font and in ROLEX which appears thicker on my ex-SS version.
    Words alignment, Swiss Made position are OK.
    I am not an expect in gold versions dials so this is all what I can comment here.
    I hope that helps.

    It does. I appreciate it.
    The fonts are funky to me and the hands looks like they've been yanked out improperly, repeatedly; with a dozen of dents in them.
    "METER" in Chronometer and "RAPH" in Cosmograph are larger font.
    I passed on it.

    It's moot now, but the dial looks good to me.

    Damn you need to start giving lessons if you can keep secret a purchase of that magnitude from your wife. Some of us go to great lengths of doublespeak and other forms of false intel to hide much simpler purchases. You may be the teacher we seek.

    Wally, the trick is to give her kids the disease, as any loving father should.

    If I can get the kids to start a dinner convo with "Dad, did you see the new [insert my desired wrist bling]..."
    My respond will be "Yes, and it's 40mm, it will look great on Mom...AND...Jenny, your Mom's boss is also looking for one"
    (you gotta push Jenny into this. my wife needs to visualize pissing off Jenny)

    My excitement doesn't mean jacksh*t anymore. But if the kids get butterflies, mama bear will bend.
    I"m half way home, baby!

    repeat this manipulation 3x week, and twice on weekend.
