Today's offering showcases this classic and pleasing Patek Philippe mens midsize dress watch with claw lugs.

Featuring a white face with black painted Breguet numerals and timeless 18K gold case with claw lugs, it showcases a slender and elegant vintage style.

And equipped with an illustrious Patek Philippe 10 ligne movement, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding movements ever built, it possesses all the necessary capabilities to earn it its place as one the finest timepieces in the world.

It has all of its original parts down to its dial, hands, and winding crown.

Its elegant Patek Philippe presents in very nice condition with only fairly light signs of polishing to the back. Its two hallmarks on the underside of a lug and on the right side are very crisp.

Its original dial has previously been restored and is bright and clean with one small loss of finish near 3. Please inquire if you would like it freshly restored.

One of our our Master Watchmaker has just fully serviced the movement.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
