Strange rolex belonging to my grandfather

I feel like this is most definitely not a real rolex. My dad gave it to me today, and while I'm very grateful to have something of my grandfather's I can't help but think this watch looks very very strange. Datejust but no date? Jangly bracelet? Misaligned words on the dial? It's just bizarre. But fake or not, it belonged to my grandfather and I have no plans to get rid of it.

So many grandfathers with fake watches.

Who would have thought that 90% of "inherited from my grandfather" threads end up being fakes. Something was afoot ,lo those many years ago.

Superlity???

Not even, 'superltiy'

Yeah, unfortunately that鈥檚 a fake. Doesn鈥檛 have a typical Rolex case back plus superlative is spelled wrong (superltiy, lol). And also the fact as you mentioned it鈥檚 a date just with no date.

It's more funny to me than anything. I just wonder how much he paid for it...

Yeah, hopefully he didn鈥檛 pay a lot. I found one on a sketchy site I鈥檝e never heard of being sold for like 150鈧

That鈥榮 from those long gone days when the counterfeiters didn鈥檛 have a clue what they were doing. So it is genuinely 鈥 old. Take it as a funny oddity. Or throw it away, depending on how close you were with your grandfather.
