How the Melrose Jewelers U.K. 2009 Pre owned Rolex Award Winners are Chosen:

A sample purchase is made at each online retailer website to test the company's level of authenticity disclosure as to which parts of its Rolex watches are original and which parts are aftermarket. Once received, each Rolex watch purchased is then taken apart and inspected to make sure the watch is indeed authentic and then it is tested to make sure it keeps proper time.
