    Vintage Piaget identification

    Hello all,

    i’m looking for some help in identifying my Uncles old Piaget watch which I was left in his will. I know he had the watch for a long time and it has been well used. Its an automatic movement, but despite a lot of searches on the internet I have not been able to find one like it, hopefully someone here will know a little about it.

    I can't quite remember the last time we've seen a real Piaget here - most that get posted here are fake. Yours looks genuine, which is rather refreshing.

    Still, pics of the movement and the inner side of the case back will be necessary, if you want to know anything more about it. Superficial assessment: 1950s, presumably a generic (but nicely finished) Felsa movement inside. Pics, pics, pics, can't make bricks without clay.

    Thanks for the reply. Is it safe to open up the backs of watches like this? It looks like it should screw off, but i’d have to work out a way of doing so without marking the case. I understand its gold and quite soft and easily marked. My uncle purchased the watch new and I would be suprised if it were fake, but its encouraging to hear that it looks like a real one.

    Without seeing the inside, there's not much more to say about the watch than you can read off of the dial. Take it to a watchmaker and ask him to open the case so you can take some photos or the movement (with the rotor in various positions) and the inside of the case back. Also post a photo of the back. It will need to be done in any case. If you are going to wear the watch, it will need to be serviced. If you are going to sell it, any buyer will want to see the inside.
