Real or fake

This is something that was left to me by a family member. I know that there are many fakes out there and I assumed this was another because of who left it to me. After doing some research there are many things that lead me to think that its real. I have taken a few pics for you all to see to help me out. If this is real what is the value of the watch? If it is a fake what makes it a fake? I have seen some fake ones before and this one is nothing like it. If it is fake this might be the best one I have seen. If you need any more info please let me know.

This is a pic that shows "Stainless Steal serial number of F714983


This is a pic that shows the serial number of F714983 on the inside of the watch


This is a pic that shows "Original Rolex Design and a serial number of 116264

Fake. The green hologram sticker doesn't match the model # on the case. Plus a 116264 is a Turn O Graph.

Actually you said " After doing some research there are many things that lead me to think that its real". I never understand these threads. If it's a gift from a family member or left to you, why would you think it's a fake?

Because 9 times out of 10 they're lying...seeing if the fake will pass so they can sell it and rip somebody off.
