Hi Gents,

I have the option to buy the attached image of a supposed Patek Philippe as part of a wider bulk buy from a buddy who is diluting. I'm struggling to find any reference online and want to draw on the wisdom of the wider community for advice on authenticity. Thanks in advance.

Is that all the photo's you have to decide on?

They aren't great, but looks like the gold plate may have worn off in some places, and without a movement shot, any vintage watch, let alone a Patek Phillipe would be a no go for me.

Clearly not solid gold although it is hallmarked as such. Also the hallmarks themselves look wrong in how they are engraved.

The case looks all wrong... those screws are poorly done, and as noted above there are places that make it look gold-plated and worn through. The guilloche also looks soft - though that could be fuzzy photos. I'd say fake.

In addition to what others have said, I'd be a little more than troubled at a PP where the date hasn't changed by 6:09 AM, wouldn't you?

Regards,
Alysandir

That is pretty horrible. As a reminder, from our rules:

9. No discussions or pictures of replica watches, or links to replica watch sites unless previously approved by a Moderator or site Administrators. In general, any posts that involve the discussion, encouragement, or solicitation of any kind of illegal activities, whether watch-related or not, is strictly prohibited.

This one's done folks.
