    With Patek Philippe slip case.

    Reference 1593 is one of Patek Philippe's best designs ever given to a rectangular wristwatch. For over 20 years, this model was available in gold, only few examples were made in platinum. The present watch fitted with the attractive diamond-set dial represents a most elegant example of this reference.

    To the best of our knowledge, the present watch is fresh to the market.

    The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, second edition, pages 128 & 129 and 141 & 142.
