    Old Datejust, fake?

    I know almost nothing about old Datejust’s, but this looks wrong to me, any pointers?

          It is a gen, needs a good polish and a new crystal and if it keeps good time it will be as good as new.

                It sure looks like the marker at 7 is missing.

                    To be on the safe side have an AD check the movement.

                      Dial and case look right for a four digit 16xx but I would have a look at the movement to confirm. Also, that bracelet looks off a bit newish for a model that age and certainly worth testing as well.

                          Genuine, but beat up. Datewheel is a nice open 9 too.
