Property of the Original Swiss Owner Shortly after the purchase at Bucherer, the client noticed some discoloration to the pink gold case and bracelet. He returned the watch to Rolex in Geneva and at that point Rolex replaced both the case (replaced with case G777402) and the bracelet (Rolex Geneva letter attesting to this change). The original invoice states the price for the Meteorite dial for CHF 6'766.20.
