Friends Inherited Watches Help

Hi,
My friend recently inherited these Rolex watches. From first look, they appear fake to me but I thought I would run it by the experts for his sake. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Seriously, 100K worth of watches and no paperwork or records? Need to ask if fake?

Call me cynical or such, but, I think these people who have one or two posts and have "grandpa's watch " to friends watch and is seeking a free verification are in fact the scammers looking to see if their fake will pass muster.
just saying.

Only thing those are good for, and not even because it’ll hurt, is to wipe your behind since there’s a toilet paper shortage. Let your friend know and tell us how it worked out
