Incredible video thanks for sharing. It got me thinking, with so many individual parts how could anyone know for a fact that if they bough a used Rolex used either off TRF or or even a AD, that the watch was never opened. Is there a way to tell if a Rolex was ever opened outside the factory?
If one single gear was replaced with a aftermarket gear or whatever no one would ever know, but the watch movement would not be original.
Im curious how a TRF top seller or even used Rolexs that AD's sell would ever know either as well? Im sure if they bought a used watch or got it from a trade in they have someone check out the movement. But still, even the best of the best wouldnt know if a aftermarket Rolex spring or gear was swapped into the watch. I mean there are what, 200+ parts easily! Its impossible to tell every single one is original isnt it?
Half the parts in the movement have no markings on them anyways so youd never be able to distinguish real from fake. Its just food for thought. Ill still be buying my watches from TRF being 99.9% sure everything is 100% Rolex. I guess my point is, its impossible to tell if the movement is 100% original unless you bought the watch directly from a AD and it wasnt used.
