Catalogue Note

Vintage Patek Philippe wristwatches of such quality as the present watch are very hard to come by. When they are cased in silver and enhanced with Breguet numerals it is virtually impossible. The present example shines with an incredibly crisp and untouched case with a dial enhanced with Breguet numerals that has never been restored in over 80 years. This watch, made in 1930 has never appeared at auction and it is difficult to find another similar example. Consigned by an important collector, this watch ticks all of the boxes for the most demanding collectors in terms of rarity, condition and freshness to the market.
