When someone thinks about one of the most iconic and recognizable chronographs that came out from Patek Philippe industries, immediately the thought can only go to the unmistakable reference 130. Produced from 1934 until the ’60s, it was the perfect example of the dominant style in those times for watches: small (given its diameter is 33 mm), thin, elegant and attentive to the smallest detail, this watch is also extremely appreciated and much sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. Of course, some pieces are more special than others for some details: among these special examples, the present 130 can easily be inserted in this list. Its 18k pink gold case is in good conditions, with elongated curved lugs and slim bezel well preserved such as the two rectangular chronograph pushers. For this reference the dial variations were numerous and displayed a range of styles, from sector designs to pulsations scales. The present one is definitely surprising since it has the always appreciated pink color that matches perfectly with the case. Already an absolutely appealing configuration, it is interesting to note how the tachymeter scale, the subsidiary dials and the long signature are perfectly visible. Further embellished with applied pink gold dot and Roman numerals, this icon of horology for its clean lines with slightly curved lugs that remain elegant and masculine, is one of the symbols of Patek Philippe history. With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1942 and its subsequent sale on 18 August 1943.
