Sorry but it looks like a replica to me because of the wear on the “gold” on the bracelet. Others on here will have more knowledge than me though. Is there a serial number shown anywhere?

Rolex never made a two tone day date.

Regardless, it was your grandfather’s watch and that hopefully means something.

Fakes and replicas are not discussed on this forum and expect to see thread closed or moved to the appropriate section. Good luck.

It’s not real I am sorry to say. Looks like he wore it for a long time so just keep it as a keepsake and momento.

That is a bad replica on so many levels but as others have said, the sentiment is worth keeping it stored to think of the great times with him.

WOW, another parking lot fake Rolex purchase.
That was popular in the 70’s and 80’s.

My instinct tells me you knew it wasn’t a Rolex. It’s only valuable if you plan to sell it. So keep it around as a reminder of your family. If it brings a smile, it has value.

Remarkable the amount of wear on that watch. Someone leaned in hard to the lie.

Unfortunately, it's a story we hear a lot, OP. If it was your Grandpa's watch, enjoy it for what it is, real or fake.

Looks like it's been worn a lot and may still have some years left in it if you choose to wear it.

Unfortunately, as mentioned, this is not an authentic Rolex watch.

Did Grandpa serve in Vietnam? That looks just like the fake my dad got over there.

There was a rare and obscure yellow+white gold TT Jubilee bracelet, only available with diamonds on the center links though. Here's a picture of one on an 18349 BIC from WatchProSite:
