Catalogue Note

In 1950s when all brands across all industries were experimenting with the use of new technologies and materials, Patek Philippe had developed their first photoelectric movement which uses solar panel as energy to power instead of the traditional key-winding movements.
Presented in an excellent overall condition with nearly no signs of oxidization, the present clock is very well crafted and refined.
