  • Catalogue Essay

    It is incredible how the Patek Philippe ref 130 chronograph dials perfectly reflect the period when the watch was made.

    Considering the long production period of this reference (from 1934 to the mid 1960s) the model was made in yellow gold, pink gold, stainless steel, or a mix thereof including a variety of dials whether it be sector, black, or with Breguet numerals.

    The present example in pink gold from the last years of production stands out with its well preserved case featuring a deep crisp hallmark on the side, and a no-frills ivory dial with baton indexes and raised enamel signature.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
