Catalogue Note

First introduced in 1943, the reference 1579 by Patek Philippe is distinguished by its fat bezel, very easy to read dial and faceted downturn lugs, otherwise known as spider lugs. There are only around 80 examples known with a pink gold case and fewer still, with a pink dial. The present example has been retained in very original and crisp condition. The lugs still retain facets and the case with a strong hallmark underneath the lug. The dial is in very nice condition, the signature, registers as well as the tachymetre scale are all nicely raised in hard enamel and the pink dial is confirmed on the Extract from the Archives.
