This is a wonderful and highly collectable vintage Patek Philippe wristwatch from the 1950s. The 18k gold case has an hourglass shape rectangular but with concave sides. The condition of this watch is 100% original and untouched.
Solid 18k gold case is 40mm long by 21mm wide at the narrowest point by 10.5mm thick. Crystal is faceted acrylic and perfectly clean. The lugs flare outward. The case back is engraved. Case has never been polished and is in mint condition.
Original untouched dial is champagne color, applied hour markers including 3, 9 and 12 and subsidiary seconds dial. Original golden baton hands. Its difficult to say if the dial was originally gold in color or if it was originally silvered and has developed a champagne patina. The dial is original and untouched and has some spotting (but go find any 60+ year old without wrinkles).
Movement is the manual winding Patek Philippe Caliber 9 90 and is a formed movement (rectangular shape to fit the case). Movement has 18 jewels, is adjusted for heat, cold and isochronism and in 5 position and is stamped with the Geneva Seal.
Watch is on a new modern hand sewn Patek Philippe crocodile strap.
