Antiquorum, April 2002, lot 111
It is extremely rare to find this reference with pulsometer scale. The reason for this is that, being primarily a sports watch, the chronograph indication generally chosen for the dial was the tachometer. It was only very rarely, and generally on special request, that the pulsometer scale appeared, obviously for medical use.
First offered at Antiquorum in 2002, the watch has never re-appeared on the market until now. Displaying two hallmarks to the sides of the case, their presence confirms its excellent state of conservation. Its all original two-tone silver pulsation sector dial shows some wear and oxydation but is still in remarkable condition considering its 74 years of age.
Sector dials on Patek Philippe chronographs are extremely rare but combined with a pulsation scale as well make this example one of the most desirable combinations available to discerning collectors.
The watch is offered on the market as part of a funding for a charity project that will provide medical and dental services free of charge on a sailing-catamaran in areas where acces to such medical services is difficult or not available at all : The Tooth-Fairy Project.
