Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of this watch in 1941 and its subsequent sale on December 13th of that year.

Patek Philippe traditionally made few examples of pocket watches in stainless steel. During the Second World War, however, the price of gold jumped, so stainless steel watches began appearing more frequently and became a more affordable alternative to watches made in precious metals.
