What a joy to know its real. When I found my first complete Rolex, I knew it was a fake as it wasnt running.
Those high watches are built for abuse. Rolex has a watch overhaul. It was $800.... I said, I dont think so...
I did have a Mavado watch overhauled I think for $100 way back when. Well worth the investment.
$300 is not bad for a $5,000 watch. Im sure when they get through with it, it will look like new.
