    Patek Philippe Watch

    I recently aquired a Patek Philippe watch and I'm having trouble researching the watch. Its a Patek Philippe Geneve watch on the front. The back says Patek Philippe Geneve Swiss 18K/750 and number 5052. When I unscrew the back there are no markings on the inside case or on the watch mechanism. I will provide some pics. I'm wondering if its real or not. Thanks.

    Sorry, but that looks to be a fake.

    +1 - you can't find anything about it because it's not authentic. Sorry.

    Hard to get a good look with those pictures, but you say it says 18K...any rookie jewler should be able to tell you if you have 18K gold there. You say you popped the back off and couldn't find numbers...how did the mechanism look? As far as I am concerned, Patek Philippe movements are the most beautiful movements and are absolute works of art. There are not many stamped parts in those watches. The gearworks are highly machined. Look at some Patek movements...they are quality works. If yours does not match up in quality, well then, sorry.

    Agree... the best way to spot fakes is from the inside.

    I can't tell anything from the pics... too fuzzy for my eyes.

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

    Just did a quick Google search with "Patek 5052" and the first several pages that come up are sites selling replicas.

    Hope you didn't pay at lot expecting it to be authentic if it turns out to be a fake.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.
