Hi Folks have been offered an used glidelock (97200) bracelet and would like to know, from those of you who currently own it, if the markings seems alright for a genuine one? Thanks

I'm guessing you'll need better images of the clasp engravings/markings to make a determination.

Thanks, just added a few more pictures above that just got from the seller, which shows the markings on the back

Another non expert here but photo #5 doesn’t look as crisp as I would expect a Rolex to be. Especially the crown.

The 2VU serial on the clasp blade is a known replica code.

Here is a true 2010 97200 bracelet that I recently sold. Please use the pics to compare.

Fake. Try it on google with the clasp code and the SEL code.

I don't like the way the flip lock is seated in the second to last photo. It should definitely sit further down and more flush. That of course doesn't mean it's a fake, but i'm not so sure its functioning properly which sometimes is an indicator that it's not authentic.

Either way I'd ask for some clarification on what's going on with that

A real one in used condition will sell for between $1800-2000usd. If it is much less than that then it is too good to be true.

I would say it is definitely a fake.
