I'll point out a few problems ...

Obviously a fake dial.

There should be a dash between "Oyster" and "Prince".

There should be no spaces between "200" and "m", nor should there be spaces between "m" and "=" and "660".

The 6's should be open style.

The "T Swiss T" should be gilt, as should the minute hashes.

The case shape is wrong near the crown.

This fake case has E's with long middle prongs.

The fake caseback has E's with long middle prongs.

The bezel should be a black MK2 for this type of dial and year.

The 1968 7016/0 also had crown guards that were tapered upward on the bottom, a trait specific to this year.

Someone else chime in on the movement ...

I know the post is not of great importance - just think there is so much effort made to
make something appear as acceptable as possible.

Actually the middle hash of the "E"s in stainless steel are shorter than the top and
bottom. Not the typical long E. There looks as if there was bracelet wear at the top part of the case and the stainless steel script is on top of the wear. Also the rounded 3s a bit different 7s on this side. The hash is off on the model
side as well. Aftermarket insert - bezel pops off easily. iv68 is not correct. And yes Sir the dial. Just thought there was real effort made on this watch to be put together. Oh well - onward I guess and thank you again for your response.
