  • Catalogue Essay

    The present open face chronograph is a lovely example of early 20th-century horology. The watch has an elegant appeal with 30-minute register at the 12 o’clock, and subsidiary seconds at the 6 position. The enamel dial has an outer 1/5 seconds track, used with the chronograph function, which is activated through the pusher in the winding crown, and can be locked with the bolt at the 11 o’clock. The watch is in very nice overall condition, and accompanied by a Patek Philippe presentation box. The watch makes the perfect addition to any collector who looks to diversify his or her collection.

  • 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.
