There have been two other examples of vintage 8-day Patek Philippe wristwatches that have appeared to market, both with different cases than when they were originally produced. The previous examples to have appeared at auction include no. 198443, recased, and no. 198451, also recased by Patek Philippe with a unique reference 3655. The present lot is the only example to have survived in its original case. The case back bears an engraving, dated 1934, which notates the location of Beverly Hills, California; the two other watches were retailed by Brocks & Company in Los Angeles, an interesting detail as it can be assumed that the present lot was also retailed at the same location.
