    Post moved to the more suitable forum. It might help to familiarize first prior to posting. A search might have been helpful as well, here and on Google.

    Authentication of pateck et cie watch

    Quote from Ranfft (Thanks Roland !)

    „Forgery
    is probably a too hard expression. In former times watches were extremely expensive, an it wasn't as easy as today to deceive customers with primitive fakes of famous brands.
    So many of these old forgeries feature high quality (like this one), some even comparable with the originals.
    1839 the salesman Norbert Anton de Patek and the watchmaker Francizek Czapek (both Poles) initiated the Patek & Cie (later Patek Philippe). And after replacing Czapek by the French watchmaker Jean Adrien Philippe, and taking the Polish lawyer Vincent Gostowski as third partner for the administration, the dream team was perfect in 1845.
    They were so succesfull that already about 1850 forgeries of their watches appeared on the market. Most of them came from Armand Schwob & Frere, La Chaux de Fonds, but after several law suits they were forbidden to use the name Patek or Pateck in a final appeal 1891.“
    Kind regards
