If you have been collecting watches for a while I think you’re going to appreciate the following timepiece. I am pleased to offer for sale this 1916 gentleman’s timepiece. Indeed, it was made by the venerable PATEK PHILIPPE.
It is a registered design model that features an elegant ENGRAVED STEEL DIAL with GOLD HANDS, GOLD PLATED CASE and original HIGHEST QUALITY MOVEMENT signed PATEK PHILIPPE & Cie with THREE FINGER BRIDGE, WOLFTEETHS WINDING WHEELS, GOLD WHEELS and BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUED BREGUET HAIRSPRING.
Patek Philippe & Co. is to watches what Rolls Royce is to cars— synonymous with the best. This prestigious Swiss watchmaking firm is arguably the most famous manufacturer of timepieces worldwide. To own a Patek Philippe watch remains a symbol of wealth and importance: kings and queens were their clients, while other watchmakers frantically copied them – imitation being the highest form of flattery, and moreover a means to a more lucrative sale with the help of the famous Patek Philippe signature. The Patek Philippe legend continues to grow and fascinate. The soaring prices achieved by Patek Philippe watches at auction—particularly within the last decade — prove to what degree these precious timepieces are sought-after by collectors. One collector paid $11,002,500 for a rare Patek Philippe pocket watch, thereby earning it a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The elegant sunken ENGRAVED STEEL DIAL is in flawless condition. It is complete with outer track border, black enameled Arabic numerals, GOLD Louis XVI filigree hands and a recessed sunken sub-seconds dial with “sweep” gold steel seconds hand. The new dial has been professionally updated, and now is in excellent condition.
The dial is signed PATEK PHILIPPE & Cie – GENEVE in black lettering below the 12.
It is a registered design model that features a three piece GOLD PLATED case is in great condition that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. The case, new custom made, fantastic, build specially for this wonderful Patek Philippe movement. The lugs are in great condition while the new winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly.
Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a spotless and HIGHEST QUALITY, manual wind movement with THREE FINGER BRIDGE, WOLFTEETHS WINDING WHEELS, GOLD WHEELS and BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUED BREGUET HAIRSPRING.
The movement is signed PATEK PHILIPPE & Cie – GENEVE. Also it signed movement serial number №179,725. This serial number corresponds to the 1916 production date as per published records of PATEK PHILIPPE & Cie.
This beautiful wristwatch has the ORIGINAL movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.
It is fitted on a new 22mm brown alligator calf genuine leather strap with gold steel buckle that is vintage style and goes great with this wonderful watch.
