1975 Patek Philippe Vintage Mens Gondolo Ultra Thin Bracelet Watch - 18K Gold

Patek Philippe

Item No. 5559

Today's offering showcases this handsome example of one of the company's classic vintage Gondolo bracelet "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".

As fine on the outside as the inside, it has a classic square case with elegant linen textured bezel and complementary original bracelet and a light gray-with-slight-taupe-tone dial.

It remains in much better than excellent condition. The dial is untouched and mint to the naked eye. The crown is a replacement with a nice style and is the only non-original part on the watch. And the case is better than excellent.

Our Master Watchmaker has just fully serviced it (a $495 value).

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

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