    Rolex Bracelet authenticity help

    Hereís what I see:
    The outside part of the clasp is definitely wrong and looks suspicious. Itís wrong because the crown shouldnít extend past the end of clasp. There were some that did, but not on 6-digit. The model number of bracelet (at least in pic) has that wonky zero, although it could be the angle of pic.
    What I donít see:
    The clasp code and embossed Rolex stamping. If thatís wonky, not crisp, or has numbers that donít correspond to legit bracelets and dates, itís tell-tale sign. End links, I didnít research but donít think theyíre designed for Tudor anyway.
    One thing I always do to authenticate a bracelet if I have it in hand is unscrew a couple screws. Why? Because Rolex bracelet screws are soooo precise, cut sooooo well, and fit soooo perfectly, makes them extremely difficult to counterfeit. Not to mention the cost would be excessive to duplicate given its not seen.

    Just my .02

    The center links are solidó itís a sure fire way of spotting a fake heavy oyster bracelet. Original center links for this model are hollow. To be honest, nothing looks correct about it. Itís not even close.

    Hi!

    Just wanted to say, I have absolutely no experience in looking at these bracelets until since the last week.

    Though the number of websites I have searched looking for parts for my Tudor Prince Oysterdate that is a 1978 with bracelet 7835 19 and end links 361 those images sure do look like the bracelet is a genuine Rolex bracelet but without knowing the date of that watch I would not know if it was originally sold with that watch.

    From what I have seen, dependent on the date of manufacturer and the country of manufacture different bracelets were attached to these watches.

    Of course what Im saying is almost 100% not accurate as I explained, to my untrained eye it looks like a genuine bracelet but probably not originally sold with that watch.

    And to come back to what franco60 said, if you are not trained in this job with a wealth of experience its extremely difficult to spot fake from real (like myself), as all the other 78350 I have seen also have another two digits engraved

    :)

    Out of curiosity, what makes you say the bracelet is correct? Is it anything specific or, is it just a general hunch you may have? I can’t see any single thing on the bracelet that would be correct on a genuine 78350 bracelet. What am I missing that you are seeing?
