    Need Help identifying reference number for Patek Philippe

    Any way to get the reference number without opening the back. I believe its Gondolo in white gold.

    Thanks

    Looks like a Patek in White Manure.

    Looks vaguely like a Cartier "pour Patek Philippe". Or the other way round. Or even a third party effort for either or both of them.....

    Any chance of seeing the movement?! Or even the back of the case?!

    Hi there,

    I've no precise figures, but the feeling that approximately 97,63% of all watches posted here with only a front view and/or a dubious hallmark are fakes. And I'm afraid a back view and a movement pic will not change my mind.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft

    It tastes fake. Any decent jeweler can test the bracelet. Odds are it's not gold.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "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!

    Appreciate most of the comments. Thank you.

    I inherited this watch from a family member, and I will have the box and the paperwork in Feb 2019. It feels solid, >135 gr weight, so I think it real white gold although not well maintained. I'm not comfortable to open up the movement myself of potentially a $10+K piece, but I'm more than happy to spend few $100s to get it serviced and refinished.

    All I was looking for is the ref number to pull the right info for the service shop.

    The bracelet means nothing in identifying a watch. Is there any reference numbers on the back or between the lugs? To me, what you have posted looks fake. More pics will help.
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    It's very hard for me to believe that PP would sell a watch with such a hideous dial. Why is there no photo of the reverse side of the watch?
