    With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1978 and its subsequent sale on April 24, 1980.
    To the best of our knowledge the present watch has never before been offered in public.

    The extract confirms the watch was sold without the typical Patek Philippe gold bracelet and it appears this is the first yellow gold verison sold at auction without bracelet.
