Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with pink dial and applied gold numerals in 1939 and its subsequent sale on 5 May 1941.
The present watch is a fine and rare example of a reference 130 model combining a pink gold case and a pink dial with very unusual layout, giving it a completely different look compared to the regular versions. It interestingly omits any of the technical scales (tachymetre, telemetre or pulsometre) that one would usually expect on such a watch. Consequently the entire layout could be modified moving the numerals further to the edge and enlarging the subsidiary dials. This results in better readability, both of the fifths seconds on the outer scale and the indications on the subsidiary dials. Interestingly due to the different dial proportions, the watch appears to be larger.
Very much to one's expectation, whereas the pink colour and applied gold numerals are mentioned on the Extract from the Archives, there is no mention at all of any outer scale.
According to research, the present watch is the first example of a reference 130 in pink gold and with such a pink dial to appear in public to date.
