Catalogue Note

Accompanied by an Extract from the Archives confirming the date of sale on 15 November 1900.

Patek Philippe began producing split-second chronograph minute repeating watches in the late 1870s.  Roughly 1000 were produced with almost half of them sold in the United States.  After 1900, Patek Philippe began designing the watches with an open face and a 30-minute register, which can be seen in the present lot.
