Suspicious 93250 bought on Ebay.

Needed a new 93250 band for a watch and this came in and Iím not really feeling this band as authentic Rolex. Sold to me as genuine but believe it not to be.

Note the bottom portion of the end piece is very skinny and not polished this way, the inner holes have groves where the spring bars go.. 93250 is stamped on the last link and the end piece. Please advise me if this part is ok as I learn new things about Rolex everyday!

Post pics of the clasp and the engravings there. Usually the fakes are really rough and the engravings have rough edges under a macro lense

Not enough info for a definitive up or down in my opinion.

I've searched pix and it's close to call on an AD code and for what it's worth, the coronet is quite good. The metal wear could have a reason behind it.

I'd take it to an AD. Better yet, post more pix in the Technical forum area.

Did you buy this from Detroit Watch Works in Sterling Heights, Michigan? If so then yes it’s a fake. I bought from him as well, and sent it all back for a refund. He is also selling fake CL1 93250 clasps and diving extensions.

Fake. Seen a few of these floating about recently. As the gentleman above said, usually come with a CL1 clasp.

Yep, garbage, and the end pieces always seem to have the AD date code. Hence the reason the seller separates the bracelet from the clasp with the CL date code, no doubt.
