Rolex datejust no serial #

Hello everyone I was gifted a oyster perpetual datejust from my father in law. I took the band off to find the serial number but there isn't one. The watch has been worn a fair bit over the years. Can serial numbers wear off? Any info would be appreciated.

They can wear off. Can you get a close look with a loupe?

You can usually tell if numbers have been worn off, or if there were never any numbers there at all.

To my untrained eye it looks like a fake to me.

Apparently your father in law isn't very happy you married his daughter since he gave you a fake watch and wants you to look stupid wearing it.

Datewheel, bezel, crown, hands, dial - everything is wrong, so yup, 100% fake.

Engrave it with "Thanks, but no thanks", put it in a nice wrapping paper, and put it under the tree

I remember my uncle having one of these crappy Chinese quartz fakes back in the late 80s. Looked so tacky and I couldn’t believe he wore it all the time.
