Today's offering showcases this handsome retro example of one of the company's classic vintage "ultra thin" watches.
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".
It has a classic retro "TV" shaped case with complementary gold dial. It would originally have come on a bracelet - a jeweler has previously added the lugs to accommodate a strap.
It presents in much better than excellent condition, and the dial has been previously refinished.
Accompanying it is its Extract from the Patek Philippe archives.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
An important watch that can be worn daily or just for special occasions.
