Prior to their acquisition, Patek Philippe ordered many of their dials from Stern Frères SA, arguably the finest dial makers in the world. The present example has an extremely attractive and well preserved openwork dial with silver engraving. Fig. 1 is a wonderful example of a similar dial, representing Stern Frères' mastery of the technical applications metal allowed.
