Well....... I will take a guess. First I must say that the watch looks great so it does not matter. To me it looks like a genuine folded link band and a rep dial. I think the red "submariner" should not be as wide as the text below it. I think the dial looks great!

Im not a big expert on the tiny little detail differences between the different red dials... BUT for the feet first dial, the red SUBMARINER should be slightly shorter than the text below it.. the C in chronometer on the open 6 dials should have a serif on it almost making it look like a G. The cornet looks ok.. crown looks like a 702 twinlock.. bracelet looks correct to me... date code for 1970 seems right for the feet first dial... meters first would be older...

probably gen white 1680 with a aftermarket or redial red feet first open 6 dial??

I would have to add my vote for genuine. Bracelet looks authentic. Watch looks, well wonderful! If it's not genuine, it's one helluva rep.

HAHA i didnt even see that.. looks Chinese to me!
lol
Its an awesome watch.. looks gen.. even the dial is awesome but im not convinced its a genuine red dial, pretty darn close though. The differences i am talking about are so small that you can barely see them without magnification or very close inspection. I just pulled up doubleredseadweller.com and compared to the feet first, open 6 red dials pictured there.

I think the PATETED bracelets are genuine and were definitely produced by Rolex. The PATETED 9315 bracelets are worth more that the normal 9315 bracelets in today's market.

I like the bold thick font of the datewheel. It certainly says "look at me" through the cyclops.

It's really nice, but I think most of it with the exception of of the bracelet, crown and insert is probably rep. If I am right it all down to the level of detail in the super high quality photo's.

LOL... learned something again today! I would definitely have said this is a rep, because of that typo... :shock: Funny!
After all, those "mistakes" often increase the value for collectors - think of famous stamp misprints...

With a bit of work on the crown guards, a Clarks crystal, a Yuki dial with some lume work by Zig, a slow beat ETA with a nice datewheel overlay and a gen insert and crown and tube, that could be a cracking watch :D :D :D
