Lucky guy inheriting those beauties!

Haha!!!

Without a doubt. The only way to fix it is if we shut down any questions around real or fake.

I am a grandpa and rest assured my 116710LN is authentic. Does that break the grandpa scammer chain?

I always figured that it was one of our grandpas who scammed all the other grandpas. And their friends too.

Maybe the genuine “Grandpa Rolex” is the rarest and most elusive Rolex of them all.
