    Gay Frčres. Can this be authentic? Sterling Silver Bracelet.

    Hello all. Few days ago I bought a watch only because of this bracelet. At first sight, because I liked this bracelet, on the second sight, because of the Gay Freres Signature on it.

    I know, Gay Freres made a lot of bracelet styles, for every known brand in the past.

    But can this be real as it is? Except of the clasp, it is silver.(tested)


    Thanks in advance for every information.

    What do you mean by "real"? Are you asking whether was made by Gay Freres or whether... what?... that the clasp has been soldered onto a homemade bracelet?

    I think the last thing you need to worry about is that it might be some kind of counterfeit. Surely a bracelet of such distinctive style would sell itself on its own merits rather than on the brand name stamped inside the clasp.

    Relax. It's a cool bracelet; enjoy it. I envy you.

    ...oh yes, and we demand wrist photos.

    Hi. I just like to know if this really came out of the GF manufacture. If not, that would not be a drama. I would change the complete clasp into one with no signature, and live on with it. The bracelet is a fantastic addition to my collection, and it would to have it place. thats for sure.

    I can not serve with a wrist shot now. Have to figure first out on which watch this will be. Yema Superman was not the right decision.

    I'm surprised that the signature on the inside of a clasp is such an issue for you. Even an unsigned clasp has to be made by somebody so I don't really see what it matters whether the clasp on a DIY bracelet was made by Gay, Spiedel, Handley or whoever.

    Dont overthink my issue with this. I won't make a science of my decision. I don't like it mixed, thats all. If it isn't Gay Freres, the Clasp has to be anonymous.
    To each his own. :)


    I think, the bracelet will fit my Certina DS 2 well. I update this, after a combination satisfies me.
