Since Rolex searches the history of the watch they somewhat guarantee authenticity. But as some have noted, papers are the most easily counterfeited part of the Rolex package.
Update. Sent my watch to Rik Dietel at Time Care Inc. Thanks for the suggestion. Talked to him several times over the phone. Seems like a great guy! Very knowledgeable. It is an interesting and sad state of affairs at Rolex these days it seems! Especially for vintage watches.
