The preciousness of a watch is not only given by the material used to make it but by many other small factors that go on to significantly affect the course of history. The present reference 504 is a fine example of this exceedingly rare model, distinguished by its bold, bicolored case design. This very reference was launched in 1932 and remained in production until around 1939. It is doubtlessly among Patek Philippe’s most daring pre-World War II design. The pink and white-gold case has hooded lugs decorated with two white-gold stripes and has been preserved in remarkable conditions. The sloped and beveled glass is simply astonishing and show the attention to details and craftsmanship that Patek dedicated to its watches during the ’30s. The silver dial has applied pink gold Arabic numerals and baton indexes with “feuille” gold hands. An absolute beauty and rarity, the present driver’s watch is THE piece to possess for any true collector of vintage Patek Philippe for its history, its rarity, its incredible design and, most of all, for its elegance and beauty.
