New here. Question about my Rolex Clasp

I got an old Rolex gifted to me and the person who gave it to me got it second hand I believe from a pawn shop. The clasp however spells patented wrong as ‘patened’ I am wondering if therefore this is fake or it is spelled like that for whatever reason as I have little knowledge and couldn’t find a proper answer on the internet other than an old rolex with the same spelling being sold for $20,000 on an auction website making me wonder if this is how it used to be spelt?
Thank you all answers appreciated.

I will post a link to the clasp once I reach the 10 post threshold.

Also just wondering if there was anywhere on this website (and whereabouts) I could post images of the watch to check its legitimacy, if that is allowed?

no expert, but this doesn't look right. Rolex doesn't misspell. Are there any other tells on the authenticity of the watch?

Welcome..

There are a few, well known, mis-prints on Rolex parts and watches.

In this case, however, the bracelet shown is counterfeit.

Might make a post about it to ask the forum in general but here’s some more photos of the watch/clasp. To my knowledge only the bracelet/clasp seems questionable apart from the fact it seems like the area between the lugs at 12 and 6 o Clock have been scratched off a long time ago (either from wear? Or?) I believe there should be model/serial no. Between these and if I look carefully I believe I can see a couple letters/numbers in an area.
