Why? does it look like a fake?I wouldn't worry what model it is or what year it's from. I hope you didn't pay too much. You should post a picture of the movement.
You say yourself that the seller is not a watches only specialist. A very strong possibility he does not know that the PP is probably a fake.Thanks for the replies, really appreciate the info.
I will post the auction and sellers info here if it turns out to be a fake (most likely).
The seller never sold any watches before, and sells some other vintage items like porcelain, stamps and records, so figured it's worth the gamble !
Yes, you're right - PP made and still make lots of quartz movement watches. But never, to the best of my knowledge, a quartz chronograph!;-)PP did manufacture plenty of Quartz watches back in the 70-80's.
Today they still do, some ladies models are Quartz.
I was assured by the PP specialist at the lokal AD that it was manufactured totally inhouse.:-d
I do not know absolutely anything about PP, but I do not see PP designing a dial with such bad harmony.
The seller has garantueed me it's original, if it turns out it's not I'm free to return it for a refund Low risk gamble :roll:Yes, you're right - PP made and still make lots of quartz movement watches. But never, to the best of my knowledge, a quartz chronograph!;-)
You keep saying "if" - there is no "if" about it. It's a fake. You'll pay your money and the seller will vanish. You can't get a refund from a ghost. Why are you still holding on to the naive hope that it's real? If you WANT to give money away, paypal it to me and I'll at least post pictures of the AUTHENTIC watch I buy with the funds.The seller has garantueed me it's original, if it turns out it's not I'm free to return it for a refund Low risk gamble :roll:
yep it's not working, but that's probably because it's most likely a cheap hongkong movement I'm just waiting for it to arrive to post more pics and info.. and yes I believe it's a fake..I searched on the net today, and could not find any Quartz PP Chronos, just like you said, Hartmut!
So, this is a truly unique piece!!!
How much does the seller want for this piece of s... sorry, unique horological instrument?
I would also ask him, if it works. Many Quartz movements give up the ghost after 20-25 years, and are impossible to repair!
