Hi all. I have a Patek Philippe 18k 1870s 3/4 half hunter which has been in the family from new. I have sent photos to various auction houses but one of them has said he thinks the movement may not be Patek Philippe. I have compared it with others of a similar age online and mine looks pretty much the same. There are no serial numbers or name on the movement, should there be? The ones I have seen with names and numbers are from specific outlets, like Tiffanies. I have also seen others that don't have names/numbers like mine. My watch is numbered and named in the case only.
Any advice?
Many thanks

Although it looks like a Patek movement from that era, I dont have the expert knowledge to confirm if it is legit one way or the other. I'm going to suggest that you post these photos with your questions over on the NAWCC forum where there are a number of early Patek experts. Please come back and let us know what they have to say ?

Yes - contact Patek Philippe directly and ask THEM these questions!
My understanding is that Patek wont answer such questions without examining the watch and the cost of an authenticity extract from them is about $175 USD. I think the NAWCC is a better route to go right now and if they determine it to be authentic then it may be worth getting the authenticity certificate from Patek.
