    No. Looks a bit like a derivation of this: http://www.linkreplica.com/patek-phi...onos-9439.html


    Weird since all the other pictured watches appear genuine.


    How do you know this Patek isn't real if you aren't an expert (your words, not mine)?

    Can any of you guys tell me if this is a mens or womens watch. Found it at the Salvation Army, bought it for 2.99. Thanks in advance guys.[​IMG] It works perfectly as far as I can tell, was it worth it ?

    edit: where the wrist band is held is 16-17mm, if that helps of course. Not sure exactly.


    I am almost 100% sure it is a mens watch.

    seany, pretty clearly a man's watch, around 33-34mm (traditional mens size, the same as the beautiful rolex above). looks a good size on your wrist, wear it and enjoy it

    I'm not a Cartier expert. I know Patek very well.

    There has simply never been a Patek that looks like that. It's not even a good fake. It's not as though it's very close to a real model but has sharp edges that should be rounded, or something. It simply does not resemble a real model in any way.

    Interesting. I wonder why they would make a replica of something that doesn't exist? Odd.
    I know very little about watches, which is why I only shop at reputable dealers.

    Haha, busted. I bet his other watches are all fake too. The funny part is this guy probably spent so much money on fake watches when he could have bought one really nice genuine watch and actually felt good while he was wearing it. Funny thing about replica watches is that no matter how much it may look just like the real thing, you will always know its a fake and it will never feel as good as wearing something genuine, even if its a much cheaper watch. A friend of mine gave me a fake Rolex a few years ago and I wore it out a few times and no matter how much it looked like a real Rolex I knew it was fake so I stopped wearing it and got a nice vintage Omega instead. At least if your going to wear a replica, get a model that doesnt cost 1/3 of your yearly salary.
