Sorry for the bad pics, but if anyone has thoughts on this sea dweller please let me know. Guy is trying to sell it to me and im a non expert, says he has owned it for 15+ years and dial is original....





someone said on the rolex forums that they felt the dial was not authentic but did not give any reasons why..

Not only is the dial inauthentic, but the case is fake as well.

Would you be so gracious as to help identify the areas of contention ? Just for education and awareness

first of all there are no drsd straight across case backs at that serial range.

By then they were round only and without serial number inside case back so a classic fakers mistake never mind the wrong font for serial and model.

Dial is a bad fake that bears no resemblance to any genuine drsd dial.
