Description
Patek Philippe collectors consider the reference 1463 chronograph to be among Patek’s most important watches. Introduced in 1940, this chronograph has a unique profile, owing to the highly domed crystal and massive screw back. In a family of otherwise dressy Patek chronographs, the 1463 is sporty looking. While ‘sporty’ and ‘chronograph’ go hand in hand these days, this watch’s massive construction was revolutionary in its day. The screw back introduced a water and dirt resistance otherwise unknown at the time, and the 1463 is Patek’s first water resistant chronograph.

Original impeccable 18k case with dimensions of 35mm diameter by 13mm thick. From lug tip to lug tip, this watch measures 43.2mm. As mentioned, the caseback is threaded and screws down into the center part of the case. This was Patek’s first chronograph to implement the screw back, so as to achieve water resistance. The round pump style chronograph pushers have a sunburst pattern engraving.

Original untouched silver dial featuring applied hour markers along with seconds chapter, tachymeter scale, sunken subdials (for seconds and chronograph 30 minute totalizer), blued chronograph hands and golden feuille style main hands. The dial and hands are 100% original, untouched and clean.

Movement is the manual winding Patek Philippe chronograph Caliber 13-130 with 23 jewels, column wheel construction, and adjusted to 8 positions. Movement is protected by inner dust cover and is clean and running.
