    Vintage Patek Phillipe Wristwatch, Only one exists?

    I have bought this watch and posted it on eBay. I did some research and I could not find it anywhere, not even on any historical archives. I am 100% sure that this is an authentic watch that was custom made for Hausmann & Co. by Patek Phillipe. I had a very hard time putting a price tag on this timepiece. Has anyone ever stumbled into it before?

    Certainly looks like a PP movement:

    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Patek-Philippe 10-200

    Edit: When you say that you could not find it on any "historical archives", do you mean that you requested an extract from the archives from PP and they were not able to provide it? Or do you mean something else? If PP couldn't provide an extract, that's not a good sign.

    I don't think it was custom made for anyone. Hausmann & Co. were likely a retailer, like Freccero or Tiffany & Co.

    Some retailers have co-signed the watches they were selling, which does not make these watches "custom made."

    BTW, what "archives" have you been looking in?

    Thanks for the clarification. I am not very knowledgeable about watches and I am here to learn. I searched through Patek's online archives and I did not find this watch.

    I searched into the online archives available to the public myself and I did not find it. I did not request an extract, I actually had no idea that it was possible to do so.

    Every picture is blurred, one way or another. Get a hold of PP with clear pictures and they will help you
