1960's Patek Philippe Classic Vintage Mens Ultra Thin Retro Bark Watch - 18K White Gold

Patek Philippe

Item No. 8214SH

Today's offering showcases this handsome and all-original retro example of one of the company's classic vintage "ultra thin" watches.

It features a distinctive tonneau shaped case and with wonderful original bark textured finish and classic silver dial which gives the watch a cool monochrome look.

Powered by a Patek Philippe caliber 175 handwound movement, the company's first ultra-thin mechanism, the watch excels in technical merits. This illustrious movement was awarded the prestigious "Geneve Quality Seal".

We were fortunate to acquire it in such beautiful original condition. All of its parts are original. The case presents as just short of mint with a crisp hallmark. Its untouched original dial is near mint. In person it presents even cleaner than our highly magnified photos seems to suggest. It looks great on the wrist.

And its movement is in pleasing condition.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new Teju lizard strap 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 full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

Please inquire if you would like us to request an Extract from the Archives for you.

An important watch that can be worn daily or just for special occasions.
