We are proud to offer today this extremely fine and all-original mid-century era ladies Patek Philippe. It is a prime example of a Patek Philippe watch with rare platinum case factory set by Patek with 48 diamonds.
The forty-eight diamonds totaling .60 of a carat, more diamonds then often found on similar Patek Philippe watches, are exceptionally high quality, as one would expect from original factory set diamonds on a watch of this caliber. Our photos couldn't do it justice.
With its understated silver face and showstopping case, it showcases a classic, elegant, and ultra-luxurious vintage Patek style.
Powering it is its illustrious handwound movement. Patek designed the extremely high-grade movement to maintain very accurate timekeeping even across a wide range of temperatures, positions, and even amounts of power left (isochronism), something only the highest top tier of mens movements could do. It is even stamped with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève and is among the finest hand-winding ladies movements ever built.
We were fortunate to acquire it in all-original condition. It has 100% original parts down to the dial, hands, and winding crown and presents in beautiful original condition.
Its shapely Patek Philippe case is in better than near mint condition with light remnants of wear. We have not polished it. It has never been heavily polished and retains a strong hallmark.
Its untouched original dial is just short of mint and its movement, which is very clean, is keeping accurate time. Photos of the inside available upon request.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Accompanying it is an Extract from the Patek Philippe's archive attesting to its authenticity and originality and its original Patek Philippe box and original platinum Patek Philippe buckle.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function.
