With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with silvered dial and raised gold index in 1955 and its subsequent sale on 9 May 1957.

Rare are the opportunities of coming across a reference 1579 in today's market.

Reference 1579 is today one of the most popular chronograph models from the Patek Philippe vintage era.
