Need advice as to whether DateJust is authentic

Hi all, I'm looking at purchasing my first Rolex and need advice as to whether this is an authentic piece.

I have provided as many photos as possible, please advise.

Thank you for your time!

Thanks David, that is very reassuring. It looks to be a good watch, in fine condition and not over polished etc.

Is there anything you would note particularly?

Looks ok.

Has the rotor been touching the plates at some stage?

Does it have service history?

Thanks all. Not sure if the rotor has been touching the plates. I’ve done some reading on this and it seems it may be a crude last minute finishing technique from the factory—there’s a thread on here about it but can’t post link as I’m new. Will inspect when I receive it. Do I need a special tool to open an oyster case? If so where can I get one?

Nothing wrong with the rotor - I see NO issue of rubbing.
Do not open it, watch is fine.
Wear it and enjoy - stop looking for issues
And yes, you need a special tool
