Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present 18K pink gold watch in 1945 with silvery rose dial and raised gold indexes and its subsequent sale on 3 July 1945.

The present watch charms with its elegant pink dial, which blends nicely with the sensual case form and exudes elegance at first sight. Fresh to the auction market, this vintage piece is a true collector's gem.

Both pink gold and platinum examples of this reference are rare as the majority of watches were cased in yellow gold.

Reference 1593, which was launched in 1944, is also known among collectors as the "hour glass" model due to its streamlined form with its concave and curved sides. A formidable reminder of times past, this classic watch was available until around 1967.

The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, second edition, pp. 128 & 129, as well as p. 141.
