Reference 130 is considered to be one of Patek Philippe’s most recognizable and well-known vintage chronograph models. The appeal of this ref. 130 is further enhanced by its rare dial layout, combining Roman numerals to 6 and 12 o’clock with baton numerals as opposed to the better-known dots or thin oversized batons. The production of the chronograph with reference 130 was launched in 1934 and remained in production until the 1960s. The model was produced in different precious metal versions as well as in stainless steel. This lot fully in yellow gold comes in its original overall condition with an amazing case that makes this reference 130 a truly exclusive find for the collector. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in yellow gold in 1947 and its subsequent sale on 23 March 1948.
