Is this real or fake watch?

I inherited this watch from my grandfather, so itís difficult for me to determine their originality. Please, help.

That's a very modern looking fake. Your Grandfather can't have had it for long.

There sure are a lot of grandfathers who had Rolexes. Does that make the story sound more believable. I’d rather it be a: ‘I’m looking at this in a second hard store, is it real?’ question.

Your watches will be fine, as long as you leave them for your brother or sister's kids. Leave them for your own at your risk!
