Gift for Wife, Need Authentication Help!

Hi, this piece is at auction and I'd like to see if there's enough here to authenticate it. I don't know the reference. I couldn't find a box just like the one in the photos, so I am skeptical. What do you think, is this thing real? Thank you for your time!

The diamond pips themselves are all catty-wompus, and the white pips next to them are incredibly inconsistent. The big Crown isn't even close to centered. And dont' get me started on that date wheel!

At minimum, it is a pretty crappy re-dial/modified dial. and a non-authentic date-wheel.

All that said, I'm awful at recognizing fakes from photos, so if this screams this fake to me, this probably has a "Made in China, lol" logo on the back.

I'm going with catty-wompus on this one too. Inconsistent lume plot sizes and placement would set off my OCD big time, and that Rolex logo…something odd about that too. Diamond markers not very uniform in placement either. Keep searching.

The watch itself looks real. Its a ladies watch so that proportions are going to be odd because of how small it is. The dial and date wheel look aftermarket to me but if the price is right then these things can be corrected.
