    Looks good to me. I know Rolex is counterfeited like crazy, but this one looks like it has been worn for many decades.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    We need more detail! Whatís the story? That Rolex band is real IMO. It was made in 1968 based on the numbers seen. You can look up the numbers on the band and the links to get a value of the band alone. You scored big!
    You can also check out Omegaforum and ask questions. They have a large number of Rolex collectors as well and can guide you. Restoration on a vintage Rolex is expensive, but can be worth it. But DO NOT SEND TO ROLEX!!! They will replace all of the vintage parts with new parts and it will kill the reason why collectors value the watch. You can be pointed in the direction of experts who will have original vintage crystals etc...

    Well the thrift store I go to puts their jewelry in jars after they pulled what gold and silver they see (sometimes they're not very good at it lol) so I noticed this plus some other items in the jar and was priced at $20 since my wife works there I get it half price I adjusted the band as big as it would go but still too tight I assume it's not a big deal to get an extra link put into it?

    Excellent! My best scores have come from those jars! I got a Rolex band on a rather cheap watch 2 years ago! It wonít be a big deal to get an extra link. Should cost under $500 maybe.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    Back in the early 80's I picked up a fake, and knew it was a fake - got it pretty cheap for arm bling.

    Danged thing started falling apart shortly after purchase - don't even know if I still have it somewhere.....

    Does the second-hand spin smoothly, without any small incremental movement? If so, your chances of it being the real mc coy improves

    A freaking Rolex from a jewelry jar are you kidding me! It looks 100% original in a banner score for you. I do recommend it be serviced. I think the date is from the mid 60s and it appears to have the original bracelet too.

    In good condition they list between 3k to 6k based on condition. I wouldn't think 1-2k is out of the question on that but its worth having an expert opinion on. Nice Find for sure!
