Lot Essay

Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with black dial and applied yellow gold hour markers in 1946 and its subsequent sale on 13 October 1947.

The large Calatrava model reference 570 was introduced into the market in 1938, featuring either subsidiary or sweep centre seconds. According to research, only six examples of this model with the complex and state of the art calibre 12''' SC are known to date. The present watch fitted with a black lacquered dial appears to be a unique combination, fully certified by the Extract from the Archives. It furthermore impresses by its excellent overall condition and its freshness to the market.
