We are pleased to offer today this very fine Art Deco Patek Philippe watch. Originally a mens "boys size", at 27mm without the crown it is more of a small unisex watch today.
With its understated and timeless silver face and rare and distinctive case with partially hooded lugs, it showcases a classic and elegant vintage Patek style. Adding to its interest is its great semi-sector style dial with Arabic numerals at the primary hours.
Powering it is its original illustrious Patek Philippe handwound movement, stamped with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding movements ever built.
Its parts are original down its hour and minute hands and winding crown.
It presents in pleasing condition. Its Patek Philippe case presents as excellent condition. Its silver dial is bright and clean and appears to have been cleaned at some point. And its movement is very clean.
Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calf leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Accompanying the watch is an original Patek Philippe watch carrying pouch.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.
