I went through the ebay/local classified maze of purchasing my first rolex and the more I did my research the better i felt spending a little more from an AD/respectable reseller.

This is hilarious; the Hulk even still got the AAA sticker from the replica factory on the glass. These watches are like 50$ on dhgate.

Hey Mike,

Welcome to TRF.

Sorry if I offended you, but you have 0 history and you posted pics of fake Rolex watches which honestly looked a lot like you were testing us.

I once posted a pic of a fake Rolex and my post got blocked immediately and I received 6 Ďinfractionsí and a warning that I would be blocked. I also got told by the moderators that Iím not a Ďtrue Sub faní when I called one of my watches by itís Ďunofficialí no-date moniker after which they immediately closed my entire thread.
However, you seem to have gotten away with posting fakes.

TRF is not for the faint-hearted. Itís not just a forum about Rolex, itís a forum full of folks that care about whoís been around the longest and has the most posts so they can tell off and attack others that have less years and posts on the forum.

If i wasnít retired and didnít like Rolex so much I wouldíve left a long time ago, but Iíve got not much else to do and thereís no other Rolex forum Iím aware of.

So youíre in for a rough ride if you choose to stick around

The Original Poster posted here in the Watchout forum, which is the correct place to put questionable watches for opinions. They often turn out to be fake. You posted a known fake in the general forum, with the words:

"Just saw this Sky Dweller on display in Thailand...

At the night market for usd50

Scary how well it was imitated."

Which is something else altogether, and Admin took measures to remove the post and give you a warning not to do it again.

I would have thought that the thin “R” on the papers was enough to be the smoking gun and yet there are still people here umming and ahhing despite the shockingly clear “AAA” fake sticker on the Hulk fake.
