Is this a fake watch - Daytona

I saw an advert for a "Daytona" on FB. The pictures indicate it's a genuine (to me at least) Daytona being sold for a ridiculous sum of < $200 with the seller stating he needs the money.

It's complete, watch, box, bracelet tag - really everything as you'd expect with a Rolex.

Upon requesting a picture of the cards, the rear of the card is blank - no stamp or serial number.

It's new. The watch still has the plastic glass protector and cloth.

All seems perfect (I can't tell a fake from a real pictures or not), except for the blank warranty card.

What could be the deal here ? what would it mean for Rolex or any luxury watch to find itself in circulation without a stamped warranty card reflecting it's serial number

If someone had to aquire it and it's genuine, would Rolex even support it not knowing who sold it ?

If this is a fake, it's the best I've ever seen ! In pictures at least. I'm perplexed

Well it seems I have my answer. The seller says it's a replica and according to someone in the know locally, it's a "AAA" replica.
From China
The finish & detail is nothing short of astounding.

This is a hilarious thread. If it were a real Daytona, and you really needed money, you'd walk to any jeweler or pawn shop and get $18-$20k -- you wouldn't log into Facebook and give it away.
