Notes

 Property of a Swiss family 
 Bought by the owner in the Antiquorum, Art of Patek Philippe sale in April 1989 (lot 206), the watch has remained hidden in safety vault for the past 30 years before being rediscovered recently by the family. An example of some of the most attractive chronograph pocket watches produced by the firm in the forties, it has been kept in remarkable condition with a beautiful two-tone dial.
