Is my uncle's Rolex legit?

My uncle handed down his Rolex which he bought from Singapore to me. I was planning to go to a Rolex service center to authenticate and repair it (if it's legit), but I figured I should show it to you guys first. The serial number is f714983. Thanks!

Nope. I see an "18k" stamp and I can guarantee that isn't 18k anything.

Yes, agreed. It should be pretty easy to acquire a better one.

It's fake. The Rolex service center would likely confiscate and destroy it if you handed it to them.

This reminds me of my wifeís step dad and her uncles when I first met her. They all wore fake Rolexes. Despite that fact, I still married her. lol

The watch is not an authentic Rolex, so going to the RSC will get you nothing.

Clean it up and wear it if you want to. If it is running it likely will continue to do so for quite a while.
