We are proud to offer today this very fine and rare original mid-century era ladies Patek Philippe with gorgeous design.
With its understated silver face, classic case, and most importantly its wonderfully distinctive original bracelet, it showcases an elegant and striking vintage Patek style.
Our extensive web search and search of offering houses around the world did not turn up a single other example of this reference, although we are not suggesting it is a unique PP piece.
The centrepiece of the watch is its exquisite scalloped bracelet which has a wonderful dimensional quality from all angles.
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.
It presents in beautiful original condition.
Its shapely Patek Philippe case presents in excellent condition. Its untouched original dial is in better than near mint condition with only slight toning to sepia. And its special bracelet presents in excellent condition. On the wrist it presents very beautifully.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it 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 and a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
