Fran explained that she left the Patek Philippe watch from her uncle who won it in a poker game

“He said,” If you ever need money, see how far you can go with it, “she said to Dan

The earrings were her great-grandmothers and she wasn’t sure if the jewels were diamonds or just crystal glass

Dan sat down with a watch expert and said that in order to determine whether the Patek Philippe was genuine, one had to look closely at the bleeding in the print and whether 18 carat gold had been used for the marking dial

“Is it real?” Dan asked and the expert replied, “The movement, the finish on the dial … it’s real

“It’s an incredible piece of technology and you rarely see it in the wild, usually in private collections for years”

For Dan, he was simply interested in profits and sales: “If I invested in this, how fast could I whip it out?”

“Yesterday”, commented the expert, “If anything can be recession-proof or investment-proof, I would use my money for it. It is an incredibly desirable watch and worth a considerable sum”
