16710 inserts real or fake

Hello,
I could buy several 16710 inserts from a friend of mine but I‘m unsure if they are legit or not. Here are some pictures; thank you😊:

Look real to me based on the relief on the back.

They’re real. The 2’s are the giveaway on the fakes. Even the good ones.

That is interesting; why do you think they are fake?

Real in my opinion, the backs are a big giveaway on fakes as you can always see it’s different to gen construction.

Thank you very much for all the responses. I was curious and put one of those inserts on my 16710 and went to an official Rolex dealer and asked him to check the insert and change it if not authentic. He checked it and said it is authentic; so for me the case is closed:).

This is the only answer you need.

Sorry I think I looked too rapidly last night. What threw me was the shape of the lower half of the 2s, and the 22 looked to be sitting too close to the edge (now I think that’s just glare).

Here are 2 I have, the top one is 1675 with similar 2s to OP. The bottom one is for 5 digit references; you can see the 2s look more rounded(if that description makes sense?).

Edit to add: be wary, some fakes have corrected the “hooked 2” which used to be the dead giveaway.
