Kudos to you champ for settling in a favorable way.

Wow - I’m glad that you were able to get your money back. This is always a risk when buying from non-ADs but you’d think that buying from family would be a safe bet.

Overall it seems like it sucks, but this is a really good outcome - you got your money back. Lots of times people get burned and they’re stuck with it. Props to you for going back and offloading the watch.

The saying is “buy the seller, then the watch” - my first step when buying a watch from any third party is to assess who’s selling it, then to look at the watch itself.

Ok. Major drama. Thank you FB community for pointing out these details. I’m new to this luxury watch thing. Went back to my second degree relative who I bought the watch from on very favorable terms. He admitted that he had this watch build from parts - called it franken or something and that he never intended to charge me full price etc. watch has been returned and now I’m traumatized by this experience. Send love, hugs and cash to spend it at the actual AD. Thank this community for vigilance.

The model posted by OP is purported to be 116710BLNR with a jubilee bracelet (not a batgirl per the general lug shape and lack of the crown at 6:00 in the Swiss made text). Here’s a photo I just took of my 116710LN - same model, different color scheme. Few things I noticed below.

Fortunately they were separate purchases

Side by side photos of my watch vs the one in the OP. Quality is degraded by FB but it’s the best I can do. Here’s the number in the date wheel - Rolex 4s are uniquely shaped and this one appears to be a different font.

You are trippin on this one… exactly the same

The minute hands should be the same in these two models. Note the differences between shapes of the hands and the width/length of the lume on each.

As someone who is super OCD about screws (all the screws on light switches and outlet plates in my entire house point the same direction) I love that extra detail on this watch.

Sorry buddy-hate that it occurred this way and having family involved I’m sure made it worse. Hopefully you get a real batgirl soon🤟🏽

Hmm. Where’d you source the bracelet?

So OP is rocking a fake ?

Seriously—I’m officially worried for OP. Hoping he already knew it was a knockoff and was posting out of jest😬
