The definition of “tool-watches” has always been closely linked to the Rolex brand for its ability to develop high-performance watches in hostile environments. However, is often underestimate even the smaller production of this kind of watch made by Patek Philippe. In 1958, in fact, the first Antimagnetic watch, mass-produced by the Swiss Polish brand, was presented to the world as reference 3417 available solely in stainless steel. Only seven years later, in 1958, a renewed version of it was introduced, the reference 2570/1, made in yellow or pink gold, of which we are pleased to offer a beautiful specimen. Made in 18-carat pink gold as attested by its precious original guarantee certificate with which the watch is sold, this specimen stands out for the quality of its case with waterproof screw-down back. To make it even more special is the rose gold bracelet with a very thin mesh that fully reflects the classic form of a leather strap. The silver dial is untouched with the identifying inscription Antimagnetic to camp just below the signature Patek Philippe Genève; the applied baton and arabic indexes are made of rose gold and stand out perfectly on the light background. Further equipped with its own box, this watch is one of those perfect examples for lovers of vintage Patek Philippe sports.
With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin confirming the movement, case, caliber and refrence.
