Fresh to the market and preserved in very good and original overall condition, the rarity of the present watch in pink gold is further enhanced by the retailer Serpico y Laino, Patek Philippe's prestigious agent in Caracas, Venezuela, signed on the dial and with the initials "S.&L." stamped on the case back.
Its 18K pink gold link bracelet is stamped GF for Gay Frères, renowned for their high quality wristwatch bracelets.
