Absolutely in contrast with its smaller sister, the reference 96, similar in style but much smaller with a width of 30 mm, the 570 became the largest time-only watch to join the Patek Philippe roster, remaining in production until to 1972. This elegant model was made using various materials: mainly produced in yellow gold, there are some and very rare specimens in rose gold, white gold, stainless steel and platinum. This lot is offered here with perfect dial with a superb mat silver finish, applied yellow-gold baton numbers, central seconds, outer perlage minute division and steel dauphine hands. This reference is undoubtedly one of the most famous timepieces of the ’40s and any enthusiast, collector or even curious on watch cannot remain indifferent to this preciousness. This 18k large yellow-gold case is one of the most charismatic examples coming to the auction market in recent years still in a very good state of preservation showing one sharp hallmark on the side case which is so deep and crisp. With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming the movement, case material, caliber, reference and the sale on 14 September 1960.
