Patek Philippe, Reference 130 This reference was launched in 1934 and remained in production until circa 1960. The watch is fitted with the Cal. 13-130. The majority in yellow gold, more rarely in pink gold, even more rarely in white gold; only few examples in stainless steel are known to-date (of which only seven examples with a gold bezel). This example has been completely overhauled by Patek Philippe in April 2018 and is ready to be enjoyed. Usually fitted with only a tachometer scale, this example is fitted with a pulsation scale as confirmed by the extract from the archives. Never been offered at auction, the dial has taken on a warm yellow tone from age and the case has been very well maintained still showing 2 nice crisp hallmarks to the side of the case.
