Notes

 Made in 1942, this gorgeous case design is one of the grea - test creations by Patek Philippe. One of the only eight pieces known in pink gold and with a beautiful matching pink gold two-tone dial, the owner mounted a detachable pink gold bracelet that gives the watch even more presence. For a very similar model, but with center-seconds see Antiquorum, May 13 2018, lot 327.
