1970 Patek Philippe Vintage Mens Handwound Dress Watch Ref. 2599 - 18K Gold

Patek Philippe

Item No. 7056SH

We are proud to offer this very fine and all-original Patek Philippe mens handwound dress watch.

With its understated silver face and timeless case with partially hidden, downward turned lugs, it showcases a classic and elegant vintage Patek style.

Powering the watch is its illustrious Patek Philippe 10 ligne movement, stamped in two places with the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding movements ever built.

It presents in beautiful original condition. All parts are original to the watch down to the dial, hands, and winding crown.

Its thin Patek Philippe case is scratch-free and nicely circular grained on the back. It appears to have been previously polished but we have not polished it. Its dial is original and untouched, just short of perfect mint condition

When we acquired it the case had patinated from non-use; it had been sitting for a few years carefully stored away with an appreciation for it value.

Its movement is clean and running strong and true. It continues to keep time nearly on par with a new Patek maintaining chronometer grade accuracy in four of the five testing positions.

For the finishing touch it comes equipped it with a crocodile 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 obtain an Archive Extract for it.

Patek Philippe:
Patek Philippe sets the standard as the finest watch manufacturer in the world. In the 1960's and 70's, Patek Philippe produced less than fifty watches per day (contrast this with Rolex and other fine watch manufacturers that produced 500 - 3,000 pieces per day). Important examples of Patek's wristwatches took between nine-months and one-year to assemble.
