  • Catalogue Essay

    The present wristwatch is a fine example created specifically for IOS (Investors Overseas Services, Ltd.) and presented to their most valuable clients - the members of the “IOS Million Dollar Association”. Classic and elegant, the round-shaped 18K yellow gold case is fitted with a gorgeous, glossy bezel. Situated above 6 o’clock, the IOS logo was painted in black on the attractive champagne dial. The lettering "Million Dollar Associate, IOS" is engraved on the case back. The special integrated mesh bracelet was made exclusively for this reference. The reference 3565 was in production for only two years between 1968 and 1971, making the present watch a great watch for watch collectors of vintage Patek Philippe.

    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.
