This is a wonderful 1950s gents Patek Philippe wristwatch. The watch features a silver dial with white hour and minute hands and a seconds subdial at 6 o'clock. The fluted overhanging tear drop lugs on the large vertical rectangular case with rounded corners is an example of Patek Philippe's spectacular design aesthetic. The watch has been finished with a new black leather strap and an 18ct Patek buckle. This timeless watch is a stylish today as it would have been 60 years ago.

This watch was originally sold as yellow gold and has been rhodium plated by the previous owner. The work has been completed to an exceptional standard but as you can see from the archive papers it was originally yellow gold. We can have the rhodium removed for you and the watch returned to its original state. We have left it white for now as we love the current look.

Patek Philippe was founded in 1839 and is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious watch manufacturers in the world.
