As a creative designer and a pioneer in horology, most of the watches produced by Patek Philippe over the years have always been amazed by its ability to totally break the mold with the aesthetic standards of the period in which they were designed. The here offered bracelet watch for the lady is a bald and fine creation made in pink gold and elegantly preserved. The shell motif with 47 diamonds on the present watch reflects the creativity of Patek Philippe, under which is located a delicate square dial with dot and baton pink gold indexes, hidden when the mask is closed, and allows the piece to be worn as both a functional watch and a piece of jewelry. During the 1940s, Patek Philippe ladies watch often featured a small dial and leather or cord strap. Preserved in excellent condition, this timepiece must have been worn sparingly throughout its lifetime as it hardly displays any wear. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in pink gold with concealed dial and gold bracelet in 1949 and its subsequent sale on 20 December 1949.
