Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of this watch in 1946 and its subsequent sale on 25 October 1946.

A superbly preserved example of the so-called "hourglass" model (because of the flared sides that somehow recall the shape of an hourglass: narrow at the center, and large at the ends), the present wristwatch presents the very appealing and sought-after combination of pink dial and pink case, dubbed "pink-on-pink" by collectors. Distinguished by its peculiar shape, it happens very often that polishing or wear change the proportions of this model. The watch here on offer, however, retains its proportions and finish in all of their glory, including the satin finish to the sides and the case back and the crisp hallmark at 6 o' clock. It is interesting to note how the last 3 digits of the case number are engraved on the side of the movement, and the last two digits on the inner side of the main case body. This denotes the attention to details and artisanal craftsmanship of Patek Philippe's production of the time.
