I have long wanted to purchase a vintage "bargain" Patek Phillipe pocket watch -- a "bargain" at least as far as Pateks go. I think what's kept me from taking the plunge is the fear of getting stroked on a deal because I simply don't know enough about watches.
My desires in a PP pocket watch are fairly simple. First, it actually needs to work and keep time. Second, I prefer physically large pocket watches. And third that it be a "bargain." While I would consider a PP watch that was sold under a private label name I would prefer one that actually said PP.
Would anyone here be good enough to point me in the right direction in terms of what to look for in terms of a PP pocket watch? More than likely my purchase will be via eBay.
Thank you all for any help.
