Now we put our deerstalker hats on and got thinking. Why would a watch have an old, beaten up movement in it?
After a bit of head scratching, we decided that the only possible explanation was that the case was fake.
… and the real deal.
Fake dial …
… and a real one for comparison.
Without a very good loupe or a microscope, you have no chance of spotting the fake. It feels like the real thing, the bezel turns very nicely, and I would struggle myself to spot it on first sight.
So, if you are planning to buy a Rolex watch, be very, very careful out there!
