    Hello everyone, my father just gave me a bunch of watches that were my grandfathers. Among them was a Longines, that I posted in the Longines section, and this Rolex. I wanted to ask if anyone can tell me anything about it or if it is even real. I suspect it is fake but wanted to make sure. I wish I could provide more information but he doesn't really know anything about it. Thank you.

    FAKE …. Rolex Day/Date never came in steel/gold case, nor with Jubilee bracelet. The apertures and cyclops are just wrong in proportion. Open it up and you'll find a cheap movement.

    And the bracelet should be real gold, not laminated.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I kind of figured that, it felt very light compared to my Omega.

    The date window and day indicator are obvious signs.

    If that's the white gold one I also was able to see it in the metal, not really a runner costing €37k. I must admit the green hue looks better in real life.

    My dad gave me a "Rolex" similar to the OP's. He brought it home from a business trip that included Hong Kong. I actually wore it for a while (it was yuppie 1983 and every aspiring yupster wanted a flashy Rolex!) By the end of the day my wrist would be green. Then, one day, I was changing a flat tire and really had to work hard on the lug nuts. I was banging away on the lug wrench and finally was able to loosen them. It wasn't until I'd finished that a looked at the watch. The pounding motion had been too much for the poor thing, as the hands had fallen off and were rattling around inside. ::facepalm2::
