The appeal of this ref. 130 is further enhanced by its rare dial layout, combining Arabic numerals to 6 and 12 o’clock with short 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. The original overall condition with an amazing oxidated case makes this reference 130 a truly exclusive find for the collector. For a similar example please see lots 41, 194, 211 in this auction.

Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in gold with silvered dial, gold hour markers and tachometer scale in 1943 and its subsequent sale on June 28th, 1943.
