  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 130 is one of the most storied and researched models made by Patek Philippe. It was first released in 1934 and remained in production until at least 1964. A legacy watch from the golden age of horology, this chronograph perfectly captures the spirit of traditional watchmaking and the supremely elegant ethos of Patek Philippe.

    Its case is derived from the Bauhaus-designed reference 96 and was produced in many variations and metals. Some of the earliest timepieces were custom ordered and at times, the single button chronographs featured a Victorin Piguet ébauche. However by the mid-1930s, due to the growing demand from its clientele, Patek Philippe introduced the caliber 13-130 in 1936 using the Valjoux chronograph caliber 13.

    The present example adds even more attractivity as it is not only housed in a warm pink case but also also features a rare and extremely coveted pink dial as confirmed by the Extract from the Archives.
