It looks like this watch is going to go for a fair bit of money when the auction ends, and I'm a little surprised. The seller is up-front that the movement has been recased, but I think that's just the tip of the iceberg. The description seems a little too perfectly worded. "Authentic [...] dial" but no claim that it hasn't been refinished or repainted. The movement is an "authentic Valjoux 23" and, indeed it does look like an actual Valjoux 23, though not in great shape. But it's definitely not the Patek version, as those were rather heavily modified by PP. The "authentic Patek Philippe bridge" on the movement looks like a joke. I can't imagine PP releasing something that crude. In fact, that claim alone makes me doubt everything else in the description. To me, it's kind of a shame, as I think the watch looks lovely. If they'd slapped a generic "Chronographe Suisse" on the dial instead of "Patek Philippe," I'd definitely consider it. OTOH, the seller has tons of feedback and a 100% positive rating, so what do I know?
