I'm by no means good at spotting fakes but I think:

- Bezel colors are off, especially the "red"
- Rehaut/coronet does not align at 12 o'clock
- Coronet on clasp looks bad
- Font on dial looks bad

Somebody will have a bad day when receiving this, or latest, getting it serviced

Most obvious are why the plastic cover with the N for Noob (as was pointed out earlier) - Noob being one of the well known makers of these things. Rolex only supply a very simple hard plastic ring that only covers the bezel. Where are the booklets and original box? Seller is in UK so space isnít an issue! Those are just without inspecting the actual watch!

I personally wouldnít go by colours in a photo as a given. There are many reasons for colour to be off. A few of those are

1. Person used wrong white balance when taking photos.
2. Photo was taken in Adobe RGB and not changed to sRGB for uploading
3. Person taking photo has edited colour on an uncalibrated monitor
4. The colour calibration is out on your own monitor.

In saying all that Iíve taken one of the images and corrected colour balance on my system and itís still out when comparing to images produced by Rolex themselves

Can only hope the winning bidder is a time waster or someone intent in eBay taking the fakeness of it seriously.

Its as if ebay are turning a blind eye...after all they will be getting a big sellers fee on this one....ive tried to get these listings removed before but i think im going to give up...they dont seem to react very quick anymore.....i also think anyone that is prepared to gamble 12k on something they clearly donít understand may learn a very expensive life lesson

Is the bezel on these turds actually a piece of blue and red ceramic or are they just painted on?

Sadly I doubt it unless the buyer has set up a fake eBay account.

Having recently sold something on eBay on behalf of my wife there is absolutely nothing a seller can do against a buyer who is effectively a time waster. They removed the ability for sellers to leave negative feedback for buyers many years ago. It really is stacked against the seller now.
