Patek Philippe, mechanical solar-powered table clock

This model is one of the “Pendulette à remontage automatique par la lumière” (clock with automatic winding by light) collection launched in the 1960’s, of which the “Pendule Carrée” (square clock) is the most common; it is with the “Dome” clock the most classical table timepieces made by Patek Philippe. All of them are wound with the sun energy, through captors that power the mechanical 17-250 E calibre, a pocket watch movement, laying horizontally.
