We are proud to offer today this very fine late World War II era ladies Patek Philippe with stunning design.
With its understated rectangular silver face and timeless case with uncommon and distinctive tear drop lugs, it showcases a classic and elegant vintage Patek style.
Powering the watch is its illustrious 8'''80 handwound movement, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding ladies movements ever built.
It presents in beautiful condition. Its parts are original down to the dial and hands. The only replacement part is the winding crown, which is correctly unsigned and a very well-suited replacement.
Its wonderful Patek Philippe case is in near mint plus condition and retains a perfectly crisp hallmark.
Its silver dial shows as bright and clean, nicely previously restored. We really like this uncommon and early vintage style of Pateks with the wording at the top and bottom rather than the center.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with genuine Patek replacements including installing a new Patek mainspring and new Patek clutch wheel, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation (an $895 value).
Accompanying the watch is an Extract from the Patek Philippe archives attesting to its authenticity and originality. Photos of the inside available upon request.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new black cord strap that replicates the look of the original making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function.
A very lovely and distinctive late World War II era Patek.
