    That's pretty much all you needed to say. It's fake.

    I doubt this came from an auction house. It is fake.

    Well, that "watch" is offensive.

    No offense, but I would highly recommend learning a bit more about watches before bidding in auctions. I'm really not trying to insult you here, but if this didn't scream fake to you, you'll be throwing your money away soon enough. Hope this one wasn't too bad...

    It doesn't help your cause that you provided a broken link to said auction house. In any case, you got your answer. Hope you can get your money back. You have to understand the regular folks here see these "Is this Patek real" threads all the time and 99% of the time they are fake.

    There are a number of things that look suspicious for a Patek watch.
    • Links plated with gold rather than being solid gold.
    • The lack of any PP logo on the outside of the clasp
    • The word "automatic" on the dial
    • The Patek logo on the dial
    • I can't see the movement very clearly, but as shown, it doesn't look right. I'm not even close to knowing or having see every PP model ever made, but the rotors I've seen have Geneva stripes and the ones that have the textured pattern yours does are micro-rotors and don't have the PP emblem/logo on them

    I hope for your sake, I'm wrong, but from where I sit right now, I don't think things are boding well for that watch.

    All the best.
