Today's offering showcases this handsome and classic ultra thin Patek Philippe mens watch in gorgeous restored condition. Our photos couldn't begin to do it justice.
With its elegant angular case and understated dial (face), it exudes timeless class. It has a pleasingly slim profile from the side.
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" and this example is stamped in two places with it.
Like only the very finest watches in the world - select watches from the likes of Patek, AP, and V & C, it is adjusted to five positions, heat, cold, and even isochronism. Isochronism is the amount of wind left in the movement. Most watches slow down slightly as their power reserve moves toward empty; that is not the case with this watch.
It has 100% original parts down to the dial, hands, and crown. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration and presents as about a 9.5 out of 10.
Its 18K white gold case presents as mint with only fairly mild signs of previous polishing. Its Patek dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Patek Philippe factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has just fully disassembled the movement down to its last screw and freshly serviced it. It is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Please inquire if you would like us to obrain an Extract from the Patek Philippe archives for you. Patek charges 500CHF to provide one.
