    Help... Is this original?

    Hello,

    This is my first post here. Apology if I make any mistakes. Found this at a very humble watchmaker shop. The owner of the watch says he found it inside his late dad's cupboard. Is this original 1570?

    Thanks before to people at the forum.

    Regards,
    Dimas

    The movement is a 1575, not a 1570, but it was common for the cal. 1575 to be signed 1570.

    The reference of the watch is 1680.

    I can't see anything obviously wrong about the dial, but the case looks like it has been rather badly "restored"* in the past.

    Looks legit at first glance. Better photos would be needed if you have some reason for concern.

    There are some really good fakes out there not sure if they have copied the movement though, if they did it would be a true forgery. Usually you can tell because ythe date wheel isn't correctly aligned

    Looks OK, but it is in pieces...


    BTW, that does not look like any kind of tarted-up generic movement, so I say it is probably a genuine Rolex movement.

    fake cyclop? Shouldn't Rolex loupe's magnification be stronger?

    But I know nothing about Rolex, don't take my word too serious.

    It could have been replaced with a generic crystal in the past, or polished out more than a few times. The crystal is hardly the probe of authenticity of the whole thing in such a case.
