Description

Each piece belonging to Ref. 865 is unique and assigned its own variation number, as in the present example's designation as Ref. 865/3. This basic case acted as a blank canvas and could incorporate decorative variations at the customer's request such as cloisonné enamel portraits and scenes, chasing or relief scenes.

The exquisite detail of the 'Chasse à courre' hunting scene is quite impressive considering the relatively small size of the piece.

Examples of other watches bearing relief scenes can be found in Huber, M. & Banbery, A., Patek Philippe Watches, Second Edition, p. 166.
