With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with raised gold Breguet numerals and tachymetre scale in 1948 and its subsequent sale on 29 June 1949.
In today's vintage watch market, watches featuring the much sought after Breguet numerals, especially when confirmed by the Extract from the Archives such as the present reference 130, are highly valued collector's pieces.
Never been offered at auction before and until to date part of one of the world's most famous watch collections, the chronograph offered here for sale is furthermore preserved in very appealing overall condition.
During its over 60 years of existence, the charismatic dial has been gently cleaned but a while ago, displayed by the attractive ivory-coloured patina. The case, likewise treated with care, has not been subject to careless polishing, again shown by the well-defined gold marks to the sides.
The production of the simple chronograph with reference 130 was launched in 1934. The model was produced in different precious metal versions as well as in stainless steel.
