You need to look at the laser etching of the Rolex crown at 6 o clock of the crystal to confirm authenticity.

Do people buy fakes, then post these to see how good their purchased fake is?

Dial is wrong. Canít tell but rehaut looks off. Can you check movement for us. Does it change the date with the hour hand? Also tell us which way crown spins and for clock wise rotation of hour hand.

Looks like a Franken watch best case scenario with fake bezel

Surprised it took this long for someone to mention that. That was one of the first things (outside the obvious green text and bezel issues) that really stood out to me.

Happens from time to time. Especially when you have the means like you do (looking at that collection). "Luckily" for me, it's harder for me to impulse purchase a $10k item while playing poker. Shoot, my friends still play for $5 buy-ins!

That confirms nothing, fakes have moved way beyond that.

You couldn’t be more wrong.

The watch is a genuine 116710LN with a fake bezel insert and GMT hand.

It isn’t it’s spot on for an early 116710LN, which is what this is.

100% fake, look at that horrible tolerance of the clasp buckle, and the engravings of the clasp do not match any genuine ceramic GMT clasps.

There are so many problems with that watch,all of the above.Most noticeable is the lack of serial number at six o clock and Rehaut spacing.
Check if there is a coronet etched at the six position?Are there any papers?
Would give it back to your friend ASAP.

All of you questioning his friendship; read the entire thread or don't comment.
All of you saying full watch is fake; do your due diligence before commenting.

This thread is making lots of people look like fools.

To my beginner eyes it looks like a real LN with aftermarket bezel insert to look like the batman, and after reading comments from trusted posters; going to agree with this.

Nice that you are getting your money back. Nice collection as always :)

Going by your picture, don't you already have two BLNR's in your collection for comparison?

And a Pepsi. Would have been my first reaction, rather than throwing to the sharks at Rolexforums...

Everything is wrong, the bezel font is thin and uneven, green text on the dial, the rehaut doesnít align properly, the bracelet has overly thick polished center links, the crown on the clasp in poor quality, the print on the clasp is rough and thick. This one is a pretty poor fake
