Hi. I need advice on a watch, if anyone can help please...?
I have a Hermes "Kelly" watch, circa 1980's. My particular query is regarding the manufacturer. The watch face is marked with the Hermes logo at the top, and below the fingers is the manufacturer's name: Jean Renet. I know this is a highly regarded vintage watchmaker, but I've never seen a manufacturer's name on other Kelly watches, only the Hermes name... I'm wondering if anyone can tell me why this would be, and whether this is likely to affect the valuation of the watch - either way! Any replies gratefully received. Many thanks.
