Response to Not sure, as 1601 case making would have stopped

I have seen some cases where the engravings of the serial numbers are not original from the manufacturer. An example is where someone has wanted to have their watch match paperwork with the same serial numbers. This would be more common with older Day Date models, but in this game nothing is bullet proof especially with modern technology. Not saying that there has been foul play, but just a speculation. Reminds me of a previous discussion on this forum a couple of months ago regarding a dubious gold case where the serial number was not in the same range of that model number
