Response to Authenticity Question on 2 Tone 1680
...for a special order Rolex, I mean engraved at the factory with numbers that should appear almost identical to the numbers between the lugs in both font & style. Your engraving is clearly ex post facto by a watchmaker or other non-original agent. Maybe Rolex did it at the service but they did not do it when the watch was assembled, which would be the true sign of a special order watch. The other black ink markings are typical of Rolex service markings, BTW.
So IMHO this is still a put together watch and never something that was originally produced by Rolex in this particular configuration.
