Rolex Authenticity/Appraisal/Maintenance

Hi,

Following the passing away of my father-in-law we found an identical Rolex watch as this one as part of his belongings. The watch is now part of my wife's inheritance and we wanted to confirm it's authenticity. If it is authentic I suppose the next step is to appraise it for insurance purposes. If it is authentic we will decide whether to keep it or not and in case we decide to keep it I'll probably have to take it for a good maintenance and then purchase a quality watch winder as I don't think I'll wear it anytime soon.

Can anyone please recommend a trusted place in the GTA (Preferably in the west) that can accurately determine it's authenticity and appraise it?

TIA

For authenticity and maintenance, best bet is to bring it to rolex service centre. If it is fake they will not service it.

Make sure you ask up front on the cost of maintenance, it might shock you :)

AD's typically won't check authenticity, going to RSC is a good idea.
