My new Datejust, is it fake?

I just purchased a new Datejust in the gray market for only $2500 and something about the hands seems off to me.



Here it is with my other Datejust, just for reference, you see the hands are very different, maybe aftermarked hands?

Something seems off to me, best take that to your local AD to be sure.

Window date number is a bit off, but the rest seems ok.

Missing the cyclops. That is cause for concern.

It's a bit creepy, like looking behind you and seeing someone without a face. Or a drawn in face. In your bathroom. Haha

The dial printing is wrong. Should have a coronet between Swiss Made.

The crown and date wheel seem slightly tilted.

Dial looks a little fishy to me, I’d get it checked by a professional
