Catalogue Note

The present lot is an exceptional example of an early 20th century highly complicated watch from Patek Philippe, a crown jewel of the firm's production. It features three important complications: the perpetual calendar for astronomical functions, the split seconds chronograph for timing two events at once, and a fine minute repeating complication which chimes the hours and minutes, activated from a slide at the case band.

We are pleased to offer the present lot for the first time at auction on behalf of a discerning collector, who received this exceptional timepiece as a gift from his late father. It boasts a beautifully preserved case and dial.
