Your images aren't working but I can say with 98% confidence that it's fake.

Agreed, If the dial is fake, then yes, the whole watch is likely fake.

Did you:

A) Purchase it from Tiffany's yourself in the late 60's

Or

B) Pay over 100k for it

If the answer is no to both, you know the answer to your original question.

For all heavy hitting vintage; If you have to ask on a free Forum, its likely fake or has a sketchy history.

Even auction houses are getting nervous.

It wasn't for sale, it was just claimed to be gen- which I seriously doubted- given the wrist it was on.

If it were gen, I was guestimating the value to be $250K++

Well, I've met some people who look like they don't have a dollar on them but have millions in the bank.

I live in Silicon Valley (where there are a lot of boob jobs)
So I understand this concept.

But- I know the wrist this was on, and it can't afford a gen.- that was my point
