Answer to Victor on Chronomètre Royal's size

Here is a picture of the baby's back: by the way is it waterproof according to you ?

The poor picture has been shot with K800i mobile with camera and seems to show non-existing dings !

Alex,

The description I got from the auction house said "screwed-down case" but it does not look like.

The reference is 6340 : is there a way I could have confirmation ?

Berny

I'll check my files but what you can do is take it to your

watchmaker and have him take a look.

Looking at the case again I'm pretty sure its a snap on back. Are you

certain about the ref number?

do you have a scan of dial side?

Alex,

should I go back to the auction house and ask them why they mentionned "screwed down case back" on the catalogue ?

Why don't you take it to your watchmaker and have him open

the watch for ref number and to make sure that it is not a scrw back. Normally screw backs should look like this:

you can see the back has multiple angles to allow the watchmaker to screw in the back with a special tool. In your photo the back looks flat which leads me to believe it is snap on.

Re your question as to take the watch back if it is not as described...that's for you to determine how important the water resistance of the watch was in your purchase. You should nevertheless contact them and point out the misrepresentation in the event it turns out that your watch does not have a screw back.
