Very few references produced by Patek Philippe are capable of making the heart of every single vintage watch lover beat faster. Among these creations can be listed the 1463 chronograph, “Tasti Tondi”. Reference 1463 was launched in 1940 and remained in production until 1965, majority was cased in yellow gold, few examples in pink gold and stainless steel. This reference was ahead of its time as it is the only vintage chronograph model by Patek Philippe fitted with a water-resistant case and round chronograph pushers. Moreover, the present pink gold reference 1463 is not only extremely rare for material and preservation of the case but mainly because it is one of only very few known models to feature the two-tone dial. The applied pink gold is simply extraordinary in all their beauty making this watch one of the most exclusive and attractive for a connoisseur can aspire to own and the present lot can be considered as one of the most important and exciting ever appeared to auction in all these years. This watch is also provided with the extract from the archives confirming its production in pink gold in 1952 and subsequent sale on the 18th of November 1953.
