The present watch is a really rare chance and opportunity to purchase an unusual example of high craftmanship. This stepped case, entirely made of yellow gold, is one of the first models with the unusual fixed graduated textured bezel, the particular dial recalls the most iconic model designed by Gerald Albert, as presents black sectors lines in contrast with a shining silver, making this watch one of the most charismatic ever produced by the Patek Philippe maison. Completed by the 18k yellow-gold rope-style chain bracelet with a 18k yellow-gold jewelry style clasp that enhances its charm for the most demanding collector. This watch is also provided with the extract from the archives confirming its production in 1962 and subsequent sale on the 9th of November 1962.
