Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1971 and its subsequent sale on March 16th of the same year.

To the best of our knowledge this watch has never before been offered in public.

Reference 803 was in production from the 1940s until the early 1980s, and the earliest known coin watches produced by Patek Philippe date back to 1910.

The present watch is part of a small series of gold coin watches, given reference numbers 800 to 809, using the US$5 (ref. 800), US$10 (ref. 801), US$20 (ref. 802 & 803), CHF100 (ref. 804), Pesos 50 (ref. 805) and others. No other coin watches were since made by Patek Philippe.

The present watch features the much sought-after Breguet numerals, as opposed to the better known baton numerals.
