Patek Philippe has always been very careful to the needs and demands of its customers: the 1579 is in fact the chronograph version of 1578 which, instead, is a “time-only” watch yet the case that makes them up has the same design except, of course, for the two chronometric pushers. The model offered here is a beautiful and rare specimen of 1578, also known as “spider lugs” or alternatively called “anse a ragno” by Italians collectors for the particular profile of the case that reminds precisely that of a spider. The lugs of this watch have in fact an absolutely unusual shape, characterized by very prominent edges which, over time, tend to wear out. It’s still extremely fresh and perfectly preserved case in pink gold. Excellently aged, this dial features dagger and dot numerals with baton hands. The gold signature is completed by the separate seconds counter at 6 o’clock, the closed external track for minutes, and is even more special is the rare signature Hausmann & Co., an important retailer located in the historic center of Rome. Its iconic look, technical proficiency and overall rarity make this piece highly appealing. This watch is sold with its original Certificate of Origin and box.
