If you have been collecting watches for a while I think you’re going to appreciate the following timepiece. One could argue that the word “RARE” gets tossed around a bit too easily on eBay but I think this is one case where the moniker is well deserved. I am pleased to offer for sale this 1885 timepiece. Indeed, it was made by the venerable PATEK PHILIPPE & Company.

 

This timepiece features ORIGINAL PORCELAIN DIAL with GOLD HANDS, CHROMED STEEL CASE and signed HIGH GRADE MECHANISM with STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, THREE FINGER BRIDGE, WINDING WHEELS WITH WOLF TEETH TRANSMISSION, TWO-PART WINDING BRIDGE, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL and IMPRESSIVE LARGE BI-METALLIC BALANCE & BLUED BREGUET HAIRSPRING.

 

THE MOVEMENT IS AN EXTRA HIGH QUALITY PRECISION CHRONOMETER.

 

This timepiece features an ORIGINAL handsome sunken white PORCELAIN enamel dial is in flawless condition. It features a 60 minute checkered outer track border with red enamel five minute Arabic numerals, elegant black enamel painted basic Arabic numerals, GOLD Louis XVI filigree hands and a recessed sunken sub-seconds dial with “sweep” GOLD Louis XVI filigree seconds hand, 60 second outer chapter and red enamel Arabic numerals. Signed COWELL & HUBBARD – CLEVELAND OHIO in black enamel lettering below the 12 and PATEK, PHILIPPE & Cie above the sub-seconds dial.

 

 It is a registered design model that features a three piece CHROMED STEEL CASE 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 excellent PATEK PHILIPPE movement. The swivel lugs are in great condition while the new winding crown with raised ENGRAVED FLOWER is in very good shape and operates properly.

 

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a spotless and EXTRA HIGH QUALITY, manual wind nickel plated lever escapement PATEK PHILIPPE MECHANISM with STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, THREE FINGER BRIDGE, WINDING WHEELS WITH WOLF TEETH TRANSMISSION, TWO-PART WINDING BRIDGE, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL and IMPRESSIVE LARGE BI-METALLIC BALANCE & BLUED BREGUET HAIRSPRING.

 

The impressive large bimetallic balance wheel takes nearly the half of the diameter of the movement. Such large balance wheel is another attribute of a lever chronometer. The timing screws are made of rosé gold.

The long-arm index riches the centre wheel bridge, which is furnished with an engraved register. That design of the index allows a similar timing of the watch as a fine regulator.

 

The bridge holds the escape wheel is furnished with a ANOTHER STEEL END PIECE. This end piece is used to minimize the axial clearance of the wheel arbor and enhances the precision of this important element of the escapement. End jewels also protect the stuffs from dirt and dust.

 

The movement signed PATEK, PHILIPPE & Co GENEVA – COWELL & HUBBARD – CLEVELEND OHIO. Also it signed movement serial number No74515. This serial number corresponds to 1885 production date as per published records of PATEK PHILIPPE & Co.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the Original movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch.

 

It is fitted on a new 20mm black alligator calf genuine leather strap with fold-over ends and matching chrome steel buckle, ready to be worn and enjoyed or made the new “prize” of your wristwatch collection.

 

Diameter (with crown):        54.00 mm
Diameter (without crown):   50.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:       44.00 mm
Thickness:                           17.00 mm


This rare watch winds and set smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

 

Supplied without box and certificate to authenticity.

 

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.

 

 

 

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.
