Presidential with diamond bezel is at the top -- serious Rolex - can't believe you were offered a Rolex on the street for $185 - guess it pays to be liked! lol. There's a way the Rolex thieves can spot the authentic ones -- the movement or something -- or so I heard.

shown a two-tone Rolex off the street that was only $185
What exactly does "off the street" mean? Is this another way of saying 'lifted' or 'five finger discount'?

Rolex design, develop and produce the entire watch including all parts. Their design and tight tolerances apparently do not produce a ticking sound as the others do so the lack of sound in a mechanical timepiece is one method to verify an authentic Rolex from a Faux-lex.
THE replicas nowadays come with good, at least that's what they say, automatic movements. So they don't have that jumping second hand that a quartz movement has. By the way, every Rolex produces ticking sound, some louder that others or faster than others, depending on the caliber.
185 Dollars for a Rolex is a joke. A pre-owned date just will cost you at least 2000, and that is just the basic version.
Rolex is solid and have jumped in value, of course. My 2-tone basic was under $2,000 in 1970s - my gold with diamond bezel not good price many yrs. ago -- then I wanted the big Rolex -- anyway/enough of Rolex OCD!
This is girl thing but the regular Michelle watches are very popular. What's amazing is what these (I'd call non-solid) fashion/non-Rolex watches are running -- and the Michelle Cloette Fleur (limited edition -- so 60s) unavailable. New Cloette at Nordstrom - no 'fleur' just diamonds/10 mm smaller case approx $3200. No color - not half as fun as the original (less diamonds) but were priced around $1,500 initially. If it were bigger or as fun or had the 'fleur' I wouldn't have to ponder about. It's not a Chopard, Piaget, Patek Philippe (more of my faves) for heck's sake! Unused/new Cloette Fleur on Ebay all gone - they did have one or 2 new but gone. Bummer/I missed the boat!
