Ah, got it.

You could take it to a Rolex AD and they should be able to open it up and check the movement along with removal of the band to check the serial number a series number.
However, they won't be able to contact Rolex to check the legitimacy. The only way you can do that is if you send it to Rolex for service. Then it will be checked to see if it's legitimate and if it's stolen. If either of those cases are true, you'll never see your watch again.

It's weird, it's the only way to verify a Rolex. It seems like they could charge you a fee to verify your watch prior to purchase.

I had a 2 tone GMT master brand new, date is 1985. I took it to a rolex dealer who promptly said this looks fake, and would need a service/$700 to check.

I went on amazon, bought a nice kit, went on some rolex forums, they show you what to look for as far as authentic movements. I opened it and confirmed its legit, went to another AD and sold it for $8K

That's what my wife probably thinks looking at my Daytona.

I educated my wife too much. She knows that if I have it, it's worth something pretty substantial.
Over the years, I've done quite well at "investing" in Rolex's.
In the 20 years that I've owned Rolex's, I stand to make about $13K in profit.

Right now, I'm looking to trade a bunch of my watches for a double red sea dweller - fully documented.

I hear that. I only own my 116520, but it has gone up incredibly since buying it only last year. The market seems pretty frothy. It's gone up over 50%! Not mint anymore, I just love wearing it.

Same with my 116710 "Batman"... I could sell it on Bob's Watches for the same amount I paid 4 years ago. I have no interest in selling it, of course, but nice to know that I could get my money back in a pinch.

It is a blue dial and a Datejust 36mm. Actual model number I believe is 16200.

I wanted a less flashy, not in your face dial so I went smaller with the 36 rather that the much larger 40+ mm.

Thanks. I share the same sentiment. I like that it’s not flashy and
in your face. I have the white dial with Roman numeral 36mm Oyster Perpetual Datejust. I like the fact that inconspicuous. I might add the 36mm blue dial oyster perpetual with 3, 6, and 9 on the dial to my collection. My SS Submariner doesn’t get much wrist time at the moment because I’m enjoying the smaller 36mm Datejust. I’m not a fan of the newer, and larger Datejust. It’s too flashy for me. And I don’t go bigger than 40mm.

I'm looking into obtaining another Sub but with the Date this time. At the moment my DJ is my one and only but it'll be really nice to have both to switch it up once in awhile.

the DJ you had described with the numbers are 3, 6 and 9 is a beauty. The DJs have so many different options regarding the dials it took me months to decide on the one I own now.
