You inherited a fake.
Welp, I do know it's gold. It's stamped 750 and I tested it (I am a jeweler). So it is 18 karat. As for the authenticity of the watch itself and it's movement, I will take a picture with the back off.You inherited a fake.
This is not a real Patek Philippe.
Sorry for the bad news I am sure it has some sentimental value but it is a counterfeit .In addition it is not real gold.
This is how you spell Patek Philippe. Patek Philippe
I have no idea.Ha, yeah the name is not spelled correctly on the dial. Missed that one, does the movement look right? Could the dial have just been done by some hack? What is the best course of action on this watch?
Excuse me for the sarcasm. Hopefully it all works out for you.Thank you for your time and energy TCB, does anyone else know what a good course of action would be? The watch came with a rather heavy 18kt. gold band that I am keeping, but the case is solid 18kt gold, and the movement looks right. It just seems that the dial has been tampered with at one point in time. I know what this not being an original dial greatly depreciates the value of the watch, but any ideas on how to semi-right the wrong doing to this watch? Thank you again.
Patek Philippe is spelled incorrectly on the dial. I was basing my assumption on that. PHILLIPE lolCertainly possible that the case is not right but I would like to see better pics.You are quite emphatic emphatic about the case being counterfeit but then state there is a chance it may be real. Not sure what you mean?
Dont worry about sarcasm and cynicism I am just as cynical!!
