Authentic ?

Hi to Everyone,

My father has a number of watches gifted to him over the last 30 years by his employers and their associates. In this collection are 2 Patek watches, one I believe to be authentic while the other seems fake given my internet research. Would be very grateful for feedback on authenticity and value, Thanks.

Fakes.
Cannot find a 5630 Patek on the internet.
And the second watch says steel back and is marked 18k. They do not go together.

Authentic ?

Your father works with some mighty interesting folks - they go to the trouble to buy fake watches to gift to their employees and associates?

As said before - fake. And worst fakes we’ve seen in a long time.

Are you sure you didn’t receive these from someone’s Grandfather? They’re usually the ones dealing in fakes.

I am surprised they were able to correctly spell Patek Philippe

Seems to be daily ‘Fake’ threads at the moment. Thought this topic was banned?

Discussing fakes in all sections are disallowed.

However, differentiating authentic models from replicas is permitted in WatchOut to a reasonable degree.

The Mods will weigh-in if that gets out of hand, such as discussing how to fake a watch, etc.
