This is a helpful information. Specially to people who are new to watch world. Kudos to the thread starter.

Just one question, how would you know or distinguish embossed hallmarks from factory original made and custom made? any other info? it seems nowadays, they almost copied everything.

I have seen the comment "its a fake" without further explanantion in a few threads. Ususally the pictures are so bad so it is impossible for me to see any details on the watch. Can anyone explain what details in daydate above tells its a fake. I could agree to that the diamond bezel dont look "right" but there are many aftermarket bezels to genuine rolex. And yes I have had a couple of daydates (genuine) so I do have some references.

if you read the thread you can see the hallmarks look like they are engraved by a two year old child, this guy is just trying to joke around.

For authenticity questions best to private message guys this is a reference thread thanks

Rolex Vintage

Hi

I am looking at a Rolex that's vintage and I love it so much.
I found your forum and read about the hallmarks.
I am posting the pics and maybe if you have time to have a look at it you could tell me if it's a real one.

Thanks in advance!
