  • Catalogue Essay

    While Patek Philippe is mostly renowned for its complicated creations, the firm produced also some remarkable bejeweled lady's timepieces. While the execution of such gem-set pieces is continuous throughout the history of the firm up to modern days, it is possibly during the 1960s and 1970s that the most creative lady's watches were designed and produced. This can be considered a "byproduct" of the taste of the time, which put elaborate, often textured and/or gem-set cases in the center stage, while the dial becomes temporarily less adorned. The present watch perfectly embodies the spirit of that epoch, with the aesthetic effect of the piece entrusted exclusively to the case/bracelet execution. Not only it is offered complete with its original certificate, but furthermore it is in extremely well-preserved condition, with hardly any warping - inevitable consequence of long-term wear - to the bracelet.
