    Early 50's Patek

    Here's my father's '50 or '51 Patek Philippe. This one won't be mine for a while, but I'm okay with that

    Forgive the amateur shots... only had a minute, and no tripod to work with.

    Great watches... too bad you did not get some movement shots.

    I am always curious as to how dial damage occurs and I see some on your father's watch. How old is it and do you know what may have caused the damage between 5 and 6?

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Just a little dirt, if I'm looking at what you're looking at.

    There was a missing gold finger (indicator, marker?) that had been replaced at 12, if you look closely they're not quite identical. I'm sure a PP service or proper restoration could have it looking right though.
