The Patek Philippe Les Grecques model is very different from anything else ever produced by the brand. Inspired by the Temple of Poseidon, the Patek Philippe reference 3776 like the present watch, is a jewelry model made specifically for the “Les Grecques” collection. Suitable as a gents dress piece or equally for every day as an unusual lady’s wristwatch, it was produced for a short period of time and in not many pieces, making this lot a rare piece, not often seen in recent days. The yellow-gold rectangular case has a truly fancy band that has the shape of a Greek column while the lower and upper part of the case are embellished with a line of 14 brilliant cut diamonds. Equipped with an integrated bracelet with thin mesh, this watch is also very elegant thanks to its dial: silvered, with applied quarter diamond indexes, it is further decorated with a black enamel Greek motif. Powered by a quartz movement, this very watch also comes with a service and a leather case.
