Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming sale on January 11th 1952.

Reference 530 was introduced to the market in 1937 and is one of Patek Philippe's rarest chronograph models. This celebrated model is the larger version of the better known reference 130, Patek Philippe's classic chronograph retaining the timeless Calatrava design. The yellow gold and the stainless steel models of this reference are known to have been made with two different bracelet widths between the lugs (19 mm. or 21.5 mm.).

Reference 530 is illustrated in Huber M. & Banbery A., Patek Philippe Wristwatches, second edition, p. 265.
