    Hi guys,

    What do you think of this?
    Any problem with the font and dial?
    Been told, bracelet is aftermarket.

    I am a noob, need help :unsure:

    Some will say it is original but I can’t understand the serial font. Find the dial “weird-ish” as well. I would think twice before buying it. Let’s wait for others to chime in ;)

    Thanks for the input, I zoomed in the serial between lug, it appear it has some scratches wiped out the lower half of the serial number, which technically unreadable.

    Please can you share on the weird part of dial?

    Thanks

    Hands are lumed, dial is not. Plus, the dial pattern is not squared with the printing on the dial, per your first photo; I’ve never seen that misalignment before.

    Gut says redial. Fonts look weird but one would expect lume plots on a t swiss t with luminous hands.

    I would also want so see a comparable for that dial texture.

    with 6694 you would also want a date in the caseback.

    I think the manual oysterdates are a bit overpriced these days, with most around 3k

    Hi,

    I noticed the font isn't really straight printed.
    Could it be a redial or worse it's a fake?

    The fonts are just off. The “PRECISION” looks like it’s trying to run away

    Could be. I’d steer away from it because of my doubts.

    The bracelet is certainly not original to the watch. Original Rolex bracelet? Tough to tell. Indon’t see a case style number with the registered design engraving. And I don’t see a serial,number between the lugs on the other side. And I find it odd that Rolex would produce a steel watch with gilt dial and hands. The movement looks to me to from the 1950s.

    I think this is one of those situations where there are too many red flags and far more fish in the sea- just walk away

    Looks like a real 1940s/1950s movement paired with a fake 1960s/1970s Linen Dial.

    Love the look of the real Linen Dial
    (I'll be in trouble if Rolex brings this back...)
