Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe original Guarantee, product literature and wooden fitted presentation box. Furthermore delivered with the Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1977 and its subsequent sale on 21 August 1978.

Consigned by its original owner, who purchased it at prestigious Italian retailer Astrua, the present watch impresses even the most navigated connoisseur with its color-shifted dial. Well known as "tropical" dials by Rolex collectors, color shifting does appear also on Patek dials, even though much more rarely than on Rolex. In this specific instance, not only the dial has markedly shifted toward an extremely charismatic, somehow metallic bronze hue, but the shifting is also absolutely even and consistent throughout the dial. The aging of the luminous material to a warm cream color is the perfect complement to this alluring hue, and the final result is absolutely breathtaking.
