Catalogue Note

There is only one known example of the reference 1505, illustrated on page 284 in the book Montres Patek Philippe Volume II published by the Patek Philippe Museum. Produced between 1939 and 1941 and never commercialised, the watch was first equipped with a silvered metal dial and dual calendar only before having received a different case and a black lacquered dial.
