2017 Rolex Explorer Papers

I purchased a Rolex Explorer on eBay, and the person selling it stated he might be able to find the original box and papers, but he would not guarantee it. He eventually found them, sent photographs, and is planning to ship them with the watch. The photos showing the booklets and warranty card in plastic sleeves has made me concerned the watch is not authentic. I realize the photo of the watch is not great.

EDIT: Just after I made this post, I studied the crown on the box, and to me, it is clear it is not authentic…..

Agree does not look legit, request
a cancellation of the purchase through Ebay

Snapped a pic of my Rolex crown on my box. Looks a little different. Yours very round at bottom of crown. Looks suspicious to me.

That’s your first mistake.

Purchase via eBay only with their “authenticity guarantee”.
