    Is this the extent of your research? If you follow the basics of asking for pics of front, back, movement, case numbers, service history, provenance, then check out the reference materials on PP, which are plenty, if any questions remain I'm sure many would be happy to address specific concerns. If a seller won't provide details and high-res photos, walk away! The hour or two you spend doing your own leg-work will help with future purchases as well, so its not wasted time by any means. This advice/process comes from someone who has learned by making every mistake possible...once

    he's apparently a very reputable ebay seller, with over 1500 transactions, i asked for pictures of the movement imm waiting for them, as for the case reference he says its 2573 wich seems reasonable but i havent found this particular patek anywhere. im baffled because ive never seen a patek with the patek philippe & co dial signature and also the swiss legend at the bottom, which places the watch probably between 1940 and 1950 but i really dont know very much about calatravas. here are some more pictures, obviusly if by tomorrow i dont recieve clear pictures of the movement then i will walk away.

    Antiquorum auction site's database can provide several examples for you to compare with. Should be a 33mm case with the 10'''-200 manual 18 jewel movement. It appears the reference was available from late 1950s to late 1960s and your case shape is correct. As you've noted, the dial nomenclature is of an earlier period. It looks like a good dial, perhaps from the earliest production or another model. Unfortunately, you may need the watch in-hand to verify. It also looks like an engraving on the case back has been either blurred in the photo or polished partially away?
