Production of this reference started in 1944. It was also made in very few examples with polychrome cloisonné enamel dials. Similar watches are published in Patek Philippe Wristwatches, by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, 1998 Edition, pp. 129 and 141. Produced in yellow, pink, white gold and platinum, the elegance of the elongated case gives the watch length and wrist presence. Platinum examples are always the most sought-after, as their production numbers were always the smallest and the dial was produced in 2 versions, one with dart and arabic indexes or with diamond indexes like this model as confirmed by the extract from the archives. It also comes with its original white gold bracelet also confirmed on the extract showing the originality of this never offered at auction watch
