  • Catalogue Essay

    The prestigious American-based retailer Tiffany & Co. was founded in 1837. Patek Philippe and Tiffany began an association in 1851, and today remains one of the oldest continuous partnerships in the world of horology. It was some ten years later that the firm began selling watches under its own name, continuing until the present day. In order to be associated with the high quality Tiffany & Co. brand, oftentimes watch companies made timepieces on behalf of Tiffany to be sold in their stores. These commissioned watches today are highly sought after, especially when found in excellent condition.

    Patek Philippe’s rectangular-shaped reference 425 wristwatch was launched in 1934 and remained in production for over 37 years - a popular design that became a guide for the brand’s subsequent rectangular models. The present reference 425 is only the 10th known example to be offered at auction with “Tiffany & Co.” signature, however it is the only known example to solely feature the famed retailer’s signature on the dial without the brand’s signature.

    All original, the charismatic silvered dial with hard enamel printing has developed a wonderful patina that is certain to delight. The faceted case is also preserved an excellent overall condition. It is a superb example of a vintage Tiffany-signed Patek Philippe wristwatch with a classic 20th-century design.

    PROPERTY OF THE FAMILY OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER.
