Legit Check SeaDweller

Hey TRF,

I have a close friend that is in Milan, and just purchased a Sea Dweller from a third party jeweler.



I am skeptical of its authenticity, as the Sea Dweller I have is the 50th anniversary, and the only red script on the dial says Sea Dweller...

Have never seen one that has “Deep Sea” written in red.

Thoughts?

Its a rare sea slug model. Hope the jeweler has a good return policy.
And what is up with all the crappy photography. No excuse in this day and age

I bet it has a ETA 2836-2 movement

Is this a screen capture of Facetime or a video or something? We live in a world where high quality cameras are in everyone's pocket, yet whenever someone asks for an authentication it's like Bigfoot pictures.

The watch is not an authentic Rolex.

Posting such a bad photo and asking for opinions of it should be a crime.

Please insist that your close friend in Milan names the jeweller.

Then tell us here the name of a jeweller in Milan whom we might wish to avoid.

Always , always and again I say always do your research when
buying something significant in value .
Unless money is like toilet paper to the respective buyer.

It's a bad fake... like others have stated already.

Did I miss something or did a DSSD & Sub 1680 screw 9 months ago?

And what pizza box is that? I'm familiar in over 3,000,000 establishments and that pizza box isn't familiar to me.

The red text, the awful font and the fact the date appears to be changing at 8:26, are the first things that jump out at me. All that said, even if it were real, 12k is way high.

A fool and his money are easily parted.

Hopefully it was purchased via card and he can get a refund... I'd be surprised if anyone in your friends circle would use anything other than a card after your "authenticwatches" fiasco.
