With its typical Art Deco architectural design, the reference 425, such as the wristwatch here offered, represents one of the most popular and timeless creation of Patek Philippe. Launched in 1934 and in production until 1960, at that time it was the inspiration for the firm’s other rectangular models which became celebrated and was powered by the iconic caliber 9′ 90. In 37 years of production, a variety of configurations in gold and platinum were made and the present lot is one of the best specimens. The two body case with faceted bezel and straight lugs is in a very well-preserved yellow gold and is equipped with a silvered dial. With seconds at 6 o’clock and Dauphin hands, this specimen is a truly once in a lifetime opportunity. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in yellow gold in 1943 and its subsequent sale on 4 November 1943.
