Notes

 Property of the original Swiss family 
 This watch was gifted to Francois Modoux by Patek Philippe for his 25 years at the firm (1920-1945). Mr. Modoux was one of the most famous “regleur de precision”; one of the two regleurs who were responsible for the regulation of most of the watches made by Patek Philippe for the legendary and exacting watch enthusiast Henry Graves Jr. They were amongst the highest paid workers in the watch industry because success in Observatory trials conferred reputation and prestige on the brand and therefore, greater commercial success.
