Notes

DIAM. 53 mm. THICKNESS 15 mm. The present watch is amongst a group of watches of early perpetual calendar watches made around the time of the 1867 PARIS WORLD EXHIBITION. The dial layout is unusual and distinctive and it is unusual to find a PATEK PHILIPPE pocket watch with perpetual calendar and moon phases only.
