Real or Fake?

Hi everyone, just bought this watch on eBay from Gallery Rare Ltd. In Japan

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/134996953326...mis&media=COPY

I know I should have asked before buying but the currency keeps moving upwards and can dispute with my credit card if fake.

Thoughts? I researched online and the dealer seems to be reputable/ trustworthy but wanted to double check in here as well.

Thanks again for your support!

WHY WHY WHY do people post this stuff AFTER they BUY? If you're that insecure about your purchase - you've already made a mistake- take it to a dealer. Better yet- don't make questionable buying decisions without checking the watch out with an authority. Oh yeah- EBAY? who even knows if that's the watch you're gonna get. wow

If itís the watch in the pictures, it looks legitimate to me, but I note that the warranty card is faced down in the pictures, and the pictures are far away, so the details arenít so hot

I do echo Pryor comments. Why buy and then come here for confirmation?

Thanks! I did check eBay reviews, chrono24 & Google/ Reddit of the dealer. They seem to be legit but obviously I’m getting second thoughts as it’s not a small purchase. I’ll be taking it into the RSC to check it but in the meantime will post photos of the watch when receive it.

Pictures would be of a genuine Rolex - but the seller who is selling fakes never ships a genuine one.

So I agree - go to the RSC.

I'm sorry - not trying to be a dick- but seriously- these are EXPENSIVE mistakes if you buy a fake. I hope all goes well- but there are NO deals out there on REAL Rolex watches. If you're buying a watch for $ 1K or more under market- RUN AWAY.

The dealer has over 2,000+ reviews on eBay and on chrono24. Can we not trust reviews anymore online?
