Catalogue Note

The present lot is a particularly interesting reference in Patek's repertoire. This watch was produced for only 2 years and exclusively in steel.  it is estimated that less than 500 watches were made and only 20 pieces have appeared back on the market.  Indeed, of those that have reappeared upon examination of the case number this particular watch seems to be the earliest known.
