DSSD fake.

At first glance:
- Bezel pip
- Seconds hand lume dot
- Date alignment

Pics too crappy to tell more. Overall case shape just looks weird, but the watch on a NATO makes it difficult to tell. But here's a real one:

Sub looks super fake. The insert is definitely artificially aged, which is already a bad sign. The text on the dial looks all wrong. Here's the watch they're trying to replicate:

Here are a few more screenshots. You almost don't really need to post specifics. The watch just looks different.

The Explorer 114270 is hard to tell from the pic, but kinda looks okay so far. The bracelet looks like crap though. Overpolished, maybe, but more likely aftermarket - lots of soft edges.

That does cast suspicion, but I have a hard time pointing out other specific indicators.

If I'm ever thinking of buying a used Rolex, I know who to look for to get it authenticated :)

Well, the background on those pics is some retard on SCWF constantly posting his fake Swiss stuff and no one ever says anything. Annoying. His handle is Bur

Well, spend your hard-earned money on real watches not some cheap, illegal crap. SCWF is better than that.
