Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1958 and its subsequent sale on 23 December 1964.
The minute repeating wristwatch is one of the most desirable and rarest trophies in today's collectors market. Due to the extreme cost of production, only a limited number of such 12 lignes movements were ever made.
Repeating watches, a reminiscence of the past when electric light was not yet available to read the time in the dark, have become the ultimate state of the art device for the demanding connaisseur wanting to enjoy perfect craftsmanship combined with the discreet look of a contemporary wristwatch.
The present watch presents itself in excellent and throughout original condition. The off-white dial with the untouched raised hard enamel signature and the case still showing sharp and hardly polished lines further enhance its importance.
