    i have heard of a saying, that Rolex biggest competitor isn't AP, PP or etc, but is its own watches that were sold! It is so true!

    Just sent my 1986 16750 to verify in RSC. They were able to verify all parts are authentic but I'm not sure if they will verify if the parts are original.

    I've not been around for a long time.

    if this reply offends, it's not my intention.

    I think if someone is paying you to authenticate the watch in the manner you have prescribed, it seems to me like it's to much for too little.

    (whether or not you examine the stuff you don't take out) how would you be able to authenticate it without the measurements and database that RSC has?

    RSC can make mistakes and willingly (ok, sometimes not willingly) replace parts at their cost, but I don't think any one else can or will.

    it's a small country, is a niche hobby. let's all get along! : )

    Default 5513/1680

    personally, i would suggest that looking into say the 16610/16570/14060/etc currently as they are more readily available.

    also they have been discontinued for say couple of years and hence in 10-15 years, these may end up replacing the current vintages like 5513/16800/etc.
    I think there is no danger of the 5513 or 1680 running out of parts in the next 10-20 years. Many other rolex models use the same 1570 calibre and they can be transplanted onto the two models.
