Is this a fake? Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date

Second of the two Rolexes I was gifted. Also, when I took a slow-mo video of the second hand movement which had 8 ticks in a second. Please, let me know what you think. Thank you.

While I would never give a definitive, and I am by no means an expert, I would state the watch is a fake. This is based on numerous things I find to be suspect or wrong with the watch. Realizing that it's not the easiest time to go to a reputable Jeweler to have them open the watch, analyze the movement, and tell you whether it's real or fake, this is the route you should go.

People are going to pop in here with "real" and "fake". Happens almost every time. Annoying!

Taking it to a professional for evaluation is the way to get a true determination as opposed to a plethora of contradictions.

Need to see the band markings to check this.
