… stond er gisteren op: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d…#ht_1119wt_922 en was vanmorgen al verkocht (voor naar het schijnt 22.000 GBP…). Maar… het is een fake volgens de kenner(s). Commentaar van Mike Wood, de onbetwiste kenner van dit soort horloges:
[b]Right my dears… here ya go.
The watch is an elaborate fake, utilising a machined Far Eastern case, a (-probably-) genuine Rolex cal. 1520 movement.
Here’s a similar watch case:
and the dial:
Wabi it up, slap on a used bracelet; cobble together a box, Rolex booklet, and some cock & bull tale about a sailor uncle, and palm-off your £1,000-1,500 investment to some unsuspecting schmuck for £22k… [/b]
En commentaar van een tweede Rolex-kenner op TZ-UK:
[b]I’m by no means an expert on this sort of stuff compared to Mike. But there’s a couple of wee details on there that would make me think twice as well.
The crownguards are especially fat at the tip, and even more so considering how well polished the lugs are. You would expect the profile to be much thinner.
The crown appears to be a 703 rather than the 702 that should be on it. But that could have been a service upgrade.
If you look at the seconds hand you can see a small hole where the canon pin tube is. On real Rolex hands this is not present, so the seconds hand at minimum is aftermarket.
The mercedes hour hand. The metal portion of the mercedes part of the hand is too thick. Which means that the luminous portions of the hands are too small in comparison with the genuine hands. So that is at least aftermarket as well.
Lug holes on the HEV side of the case look like they have been artificially opened up and chamfered. You can actually see that this has been done but the excess metal from doing so hasn’t been polished away from the edge of the lug holes.
As far as papers and caseback engravings go I can’t comment further. Those points above were just little things that I picked out. [/b]
