The lot here offered is a remarkable example of the open-faced pocket watch of the 1940s tone-on-tone. The curved and rounded case is in fully 18k pink gold measuring 44.5 mm diameter stamped with key no. 23 was made by case maker Eggly & Cie, a Patek Philippe case supplier at the time. It is also fitted with a gorgeous two-tone pink salmon dial that perfectly matches with the case: it impresses with its excellent and original state of preservation with the wonderfully raised long “Patek Philippe & Cie.” signature, absolutely correct for a watch manufactured before 1948. The Roman and baton indexes in pink-gold are applied with a light oxidation spreading on some of them. With a wide bezel and leather wallet to keep it safe from damages, this romantic timepiece is a striking creation with one of the most appreciated pairs of color among collectors.
