    Default New to Patek Philippe

    First let me say that I know nothing about Patek Philippe watches. However, I have a friend who is liquidating an estate and asked me if I was interested in buying a Patek Philippe watch.

    The watch is self-winding with a stainless steel case. The face is approximately 36mm in diameter and the date window is located between the III and IV indicators.

    I done a number of Google searches and I have not seen any other Patek Philippe with a similar designed face.

    For what it is worth the band is leather and stamped Patek Philippe.

    My concern is that the back of the case says "JAPAN MOVT".

    Here is a picture of the front of the watch.

    Any ideas about the watch.

    I would assume a fake.

    *There are almost as many fake Patek Philippe straps as there are watches. I marvel at how many people agonize over the watch band!
    If the watch is fake, it's a pretty safe bet the strap is a fake as well.
    *Instead of the dial, you should have googled images of P-P movemevts, none of whicjh would say that they're Japanese made.
    The fact the case back says JAPAN MOVT kind of answers any questions you should be asking!
    *You should find a better friend.
    *And nobody older than 12 should start a sentence by saying "I done...."

    You answered your own question: " My concern is that the back of the case says "JAPAN MOVT". " Patek did not use Japanese movements.
