Notes

Property of the original Swiss family
Consigned by the descendant of the original Swiss owner, this reference 130 has been kept in beautiful original condition explained by the fact that it has always been kept in its original box. Its case made by Vichet,
it still exhibits long lugs, sharp pin holes and a hallmark on the side of the case. Furthermore the dial has been kept in excellent original condition showing no defects and with nicely raised enamel. While originally purchased on a leather strap, the owner decided later to give the watch more importance and purchased at Patek Philippe this beautiful flexible bracelet that transforms its look and visually increases its diameter. A great example of this classical and mythical chronograph.
