1960's Patek Philippe Vintage Mens Rectangular Watch with Bregeut Dial - 18K Gold

Patek Philippe

Item No. 8119

We are proud to offer the timelessly classic Patek Philippe wristwatch showcased in today's offering. It features an elegant curved case and silver dial with Breguet numerals.

It is a vintage Patek that embodies class. It's thin case slides nicely under a shirt cuff and doesn't draw a lot of attention to itself.

Because most vintage Pateks came with plain dials, Pateks with Breguet numeral dials are much rarer and more desirable - and in our opinion often more handsome.

Like a "Curvex", because of its size the special large rectangular was made with a slightly curved back so to be more comfortable to the wearer. Its sculpted case is only 8mm thick including the crystal.

It is powered by one of Patek Philippe's illustrious 9'90 movements, so well designed that Patek used it for more than 40 years. The 9'90 Patek Philippe movement is a tonneau shaped movement introduced in 1934 and was fitted into many famous Patek Philippe watches such as the "Banana" (ref. 2442), the "Eiffel Tower " (ref. 2441), and the "Tegolino".

This pleasing Patek has really captured our hearts. Its original handwound Patek movement has eight adjustments - five for chronometer positions and three for heat, cold, and isochronism.

We were fortunate to acquire it with all of its original parts down to the hands and the Patek signed winding crown. Even included are the original gold spring bars!

Its 18K gold case is in excellent condition with light wear and signs of previous polishing. It retains a strong 18K mark on the case back. Its silver dial is original with light finish loss around the edges.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it and replaced the center wheel and fourth wheel with correct Patek replacements. Its extremely high grade movement is clean and keeping time. Photos of the inside available upon request.

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

If you would like us to obtain an Extract from the Patek Philippe Archives for you, please inquire. Patek charges 500CHF for the service.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a Certificate of Authenticity from eBay's authentication service, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.
