Such is Miltons’ reputation for its specialist knowledge of Rolex watches that a number of national police forces and criminal asset recovery bodies often ask us for expert opinion. This small scan formed part of a detailed report we wrote recently about an “18ct gold Rolex Day-Date model 18238” which comprised some genuine parts but also had a full diamond bezel and diamond-set bracelet which had never seen the inside of a Rolex factory. Such information can be vital for the police, courts and other bodies, so that they may establish the true value of a criminal’s assets or confiscated property. Albeit in gold of some purity, this was quite a poor quality fake component. A well-defined image of Minerva’s head should form part of the Swiss hallmark on a genuine Rolex clasp from this era…..not a cartoon stamp of Ena Sharples!
