Notes

 Property of a Swiss family 
 This reference 533 was purchased at the Antiquorum, The Art of Patek Philippe sale in April 1989, lot 70. Bought and then placed in a safe, the watch has remained untouched and unworn for the last 30 years. Recently rediscovered by the family, this pink gold chronograph is in excellent all original condition, featuring 2 deep and crisp hallmarks to the case, a never restored original pink dial showing beautifully raised enamel and still having the same strap as 30 years ago, a true time capsule.
