Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with diamond indexes in 1949 and its subsequent sale on 20 December 1949. It has never been offered in public before.
Reference 1593, launched in 1944, is one of Patek Philippe's best designs ever given to a rectangular wristwatch. For over 20 years, this model was available in gold, only few examples were cased in platinum. The present watch fitted with the attractive diamond-set dial represents a most elegant and rare version of this reference.
The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, second edition, pages 128 & 129 and 141 & 142.
