I stand corrected and amazed.Hey everyone, here's an update.... I stopped by our jeweler this afternoon to get the scoop on this. They are a former PP dealer (as of a year and a half ago). Still carry Rolex and a handful of other lines. I think of them a reputable and knowledgable jeweler. The watch was examined by their jeweler and watchmaker, in addition to the repair/service woman. They said it was a genuine piece and that I ought to send to PP for some much needed service. They also said the service would cost north of $1500, and to insure it at $5-$8k given the condition it's in. I also learned of the plastic face, and how they were typical based on the age of this piece. They thought PP would replace it, but may be able to replace it with quartz instead... think I ought to go back and get pics of the movement still?
Total piece looked a fake to me
