Oops! Reposting this, as my pics didn't upload 1st time (figured it out thanks to a kind member)...
If anyone could weigh in on this piece from my uncle I'd greatly appreciate your time & advice.
Considering putting it at in-house auction (I'm in Boston, MA area) & would like to know if it's all original as it appears to me (and extremely well maintained,he was a very meticulous person).
I believe the band is original to this piece and would like to know if it's all original and what a reasonable reserve price should be? I didn't open the back yet but the receipt shows it was purchased in 1969. It has original box as shown, no papers other than the receipt.
(Will consider local sale in person for fair market value; prefer not to ship unless final sale to avoid any problems if returned). Many thanks for your candid opinion!
looks to me that the bracelet was something put together out of spare parts. the links are supposed to diminish in width from the first link down to the clasp, which is certainly not the case when looking at this bracelet at the 6:00 position. from my experience, tutone rolexes were fairly consistent in that they would have gold colored bezels and crowns, as well as gold accents on the dials. i have also never run across a manual precision from this late 60's era or newer that was tutone. too bad, as i think a tutone 6694 oysterdate precision would really look sharp, but then again it would probably not have the 6694 reference anymore then now would it?
