We are here in presence of a very rare specimen made by Patek Philippe in the 1930s. Its rectangular case has been realized in fully 18k white gold and despite its age has been able to conserve all its quality and beauty. It is in excellent overall condition, with a strong case displaying a very crisp hallmark and edges. The argentè dial has a seductive charm thanks to its features of applied Breguet numerals, subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock, the log Patek Philippe & Co signature typical of the first half of the century and the feuille hands. With the beautiful caliber 10 powering it, the present lot is the perfect watch for the elegant gentleman. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in white gold in 1928 and its subsequent sale on 7 November 1930.
