    Opinions on this Gigandet Cal FHF 82

    Is the crown a replacement?

    Is the movement missing the set screws? Thanks

    It looks to me like the original rose-gold plated crown has been replaced with a yellow-gold plated crown. In my experience, rose-gold parts (e.g. hands and crowns) are a lot harder to find. I do think that some screws are missing in the movement; probably not a big deal.

    No screws are missing. This case used the back cover and ring to hold the movement secure - the traditional mounting screws are not needed, and therefore were omitted.
