Opinion on this Sumbariner 14060m

Hi All

I'm interested in buying a Submariner and I like the 14060m.

I've not bought a used Rolex before and I was hoping that those with more experience may be able to take a look at the attached photos and let me know if there's anything of concern. They've admitted that it has signs of being polished and I can live with that as long as it's not been done badly.

They're asking for £5995. It comes with box but no papers.

Any help or opinions on this watch would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nic

Would appreciate anyone else’s opinion. Anything that you can see that would cause alarm?

Thanks

Comparing it closely to mine, I only see one issue(?) and that is that the bezel insert numbers appear a bit "shorter" (less tall) than mine.

My numbers go "almost" to both edges of the bezel insert. But what you have may be perfectly normal for your year of production?

And it has only been lightly polished.

My 14060M is factory-issue (non-modified) from year 2010.

Others need to chime in about their year 2004 Sub.

I looks good to me. Doesn’t look like it’s had too much polishing, which is a good thing.

Can't go wrong with a two line 14060m.
A true classic.

Impossible to 100% authenticate a watch those photos.
One can say "no red flags" but thats not authenticating
At least get some photos of engraving beteen the lugs
