    I'm not sure you'd really be likely to come across a 'fake' Titoni. It could just be that the bracelet was originally from a different model. This thread will give you some information about Titoni watches - https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/tito...ad-317993.html

    To start with, sheet metal end links can be distorted easily, so an older watch with an ill-fitting bracelet is not uncommon.

    Second, Titoni, like many low cost watches of it's era, did not have super expensive bracelets, so mangling them was even easier, than say, a Rolex sheet metal end link.

    And third, the watch head look to be a genuine Titoni, get a $20 Chinese bracelet off eBay, it will be about 100% better that the one that was original to the watch....
