Several things do not appear correct. The Rolex logo on the dial looks nice and bright but the hour markers look duller. The hands look quite new, compared to the hour markers. I cannot imagine this watch being a 'real' Rolex watch.
The more you look at this Watch, the more obvious it is that this watch is not a real Rolex. The word "Rolex" appears nice and clear, whereas the words Oyster Perpetual and Date appear duller. The word Date is larger than Oyster and Perpetual. Perhaps this is how genuine Rolex's are like, with regards the wording but they just do not look correct to me.
Nobody mentioned the obvious (or what I thought would be obvious) - there's not T SWISS T on the dial - it couldn't be from 1979 - and the lume dots don't look like the one's I've seen on other original dials from hat time period. Too bad - was gonna buy it.
