Today's offering showcases this classic and pleasing Patek Philippe mens midsize dress watch with claw lugs.
Featuring an beautiful salmon face and timeless matching 18K rose gold case with claw lugs, it showcases a slender and elegant vintage style. And equipped with an illustrious Patek Philippe 10 ligne movement, unquestionably among the finest hand-winding movements ever built, it possesses all the necessary capabilities to earn it its place as one the finest timepieces in the world.
All parts are original to the watch down to the dial, hands, and winding crown.
Its elegant Patek Philippe case retains a hallmark on a lug and a very crisp hallmark on the left side. The case back has had a previous well-done repair visible from the inside and only noticeable under scrutiny from the outside. On the wrist it presents as close to mint.

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.
