Any red flags on this 16710 GMT?

I havenít seen a 16710 GMT in the flesh in years so Iím not entirely sure what to look for, as I know it was commonly faked and thereís small details that could go unnoticed in the bezel and whatnot.

All good. Fitted with a 93150 clasp/band option and slightly worse for wear.

Standard flip lock or oyster. Not a divers bracelet.

That's a common miss on that watch. it was never an AD option. Its just a common replacement option.

AD options were only flip lock and standard oyster bracelet and jubilee.

I'd get a clasp code pic because the tolerances aren't tight (see screws and flip lock screw). Could even be an AM bracelet and genuine clasp. That GMT looks like its a bit of this and a bit of that.

It definitely was an option.

Not at the AD’s my family bought from and when you say option, the divers were always more money and you keep the other clasp and bracelet. The same price was the standard oyster, jubilee and flip lock. Never the Sub or SD ones on a GMT or EXP2

Would you take a sub or sd without a divers extension?

Look at the profile of that watch... Unlikely that bracelet and divers clasp are born with that watch.

They were supplied to ADs on a 93150. Last 4 digits on US papers shows the bracelet it was supplied on, 9315 if supplied originally on a 93150. European papers obviously don’t show this.
