The expressive force of a square/rectangular watch is able to surprise every time. This concept was perfectly understood in the ’20s/30s/40s when the watchmaking indulged in creating timepieces using this intriguing form. One of the most active brands was Patek Philippe. The watch offered here is one of those objects with absolute stage presence, capable of attracting the gaze even of a neophyte. The Patek here has a beautiful yellow-gold liberty case with an unusual touch of platinum around the dial on the bezel that is attractively oxidized along its entire perimeter with sloping edges. Inside it, a mechanical masterpiece: the Patek Philippe caliber 10″’. The dial remains faithful to the case and was made with a beautifully preserved silvered color and the applied numbers have the iconic Breguet style. This watch is also provided with the extract from the archives confirming its production in 1925 and subsequent sale on the 9th of December 1929.
