    Patek Philippe Solar Clock- Auction tomorrow-real or fake?

    Hi Folks.. this is probably in the wrong place so mods feel free to move it if it is! I was at a local auction viewing today and there is a mantle clock there, that seems to be a Patek Philippe solar clock from the 1960s.

    My question is - how the hell can I tell if it is the real thing or a fake before I bid on it tomorrow? Any help would be much appreciated, really can't afford to make a potentially expensive mistake!

    If it's a reputable auction house they should have vetted their auctions before hand, and you should be pretty safe. If it's an unknown local AH... I don't know how much verification of authenticity they do. I imagine they still have to do some, but I could be wrong. Either way it's worth investigating more.
