Date Just half fake on Ebay

Should this item be allowed to sell on Ebay?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/191859555767...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

The band is a knock off gold filled band with ROLEX logo. Its not authentic but probably off a replica rolex.

Seems like it should not be allowed regardless of the sellers description. He basically wants $3995 for just the watch head.. the band is worthless…..

Bezel is aftermarket as well... you are basically getting a rolex movement and case.

I see a shape which perfectly legitamite aftermarket bands have to open the clasp. I am only on a iphone ? I could be kissing it. There's nothing illegal about an unmarked part that looks similar that's what aftermarket means a lot of people confuse terms, if it has Rolex markings it's counterfeit.

The seller changed the photos. It did have the Rolex crown but now he has totally changed photos.

Why the heck should the case be solid gold?

I've got to say, you are absolutely ridiculous when you say you teach people about recognizing fakes, when you are obviously completely clueless about Rolex models.

Try reading sellers description, he states case is "solid gold" and SS- correct term would be TT (two tone). The case is not solid gold!
That is why, I made my comment!

And you should stick to the watch, and not rude personal attacks.
Thanks

Bezel is solid gold on 16233. SG/SS is correct terminology that seller is using.

The fact that you have repeatedly advertised (or at least mentioned you have a) your training business here means that your comments are scrutinized more stringently, and your comments often are completely pointless and flat out wrong. The latest ones have been not knowing where the serial number is on Rolex watches, not knowing Explorer I exists as a model, and thinking there is a Platinum submariner while not knowing about 116619 "Smurf". That coming from a self-proclaimed pro is scary. The comments are not personal, they are comments about your business. I hope no-one buys into your business because of your post count without researching the content of those posts.

I see you are from Columbia, SC. I visit Cola pretty often as my wife is from there, I'd be happy to teach you about Rolex some day, for free.
