    Fake Patek Phillipe?

    My dad just sent me this pic. Could this possibly be real? I can't find it on a quick google search. And for now it's all I have to go on. For sale in a lot by people totally unaware of any watch info or value. Just being cleared out. Worth a shot?!?

    Hi, my name is Dave, and I'm a Chronoholic. It's been almost a XXXX day since my last chrono buy. I'm still going through DTs, and I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out.

    It could be real. But when I tasted it, it was sour so I say it is probably fake. I don't get to taste many real Pateks so maybe I just don't know their flavor. Others might.

    "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!

    There are probably more fake Pateks out there than real ones. But, you never know....

    ....which is a ploy used by somewhat dishonest sellers to tempt us to take a punt. 'I know nothing about watches' is a way of saying 'I am naive - you can take advantage of my ignorance and snag a real bargain'.

    Personally, I have never even held a Patek so there's no way I could judge from a picture. But you never know....

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    They may not know much about watches but they will know something about Google.
    I'd be very wary.

    Fake! Patek Philippe put the Calatrava cross on the crown, movement - but never the dial. Also, they have only just brought out a regulateur watch (looking rather different to that one) and that is supposed to be the first they ever made.
