The Patek 767 is a true masterpiece created by Patek Philippe featuring a perpetual calendar, split-second chronograph and minute-repeater.
Using movements from the 1920’s and cased around 1960, this reference features different case designs either in this elegant rounded case (767/1) or with the more chunky double stepped case (767/3). Each appears to have unique features sometimes with the moonphase at 6 o clock rather than at 12 and sometimes with baton or arabic indexes. Maintained in excellent overall condition and unused since its purchase at Antiquorum (October 1994, Lot 471), only 7 pieces of reference 767 are known, with this example being the only one with arabic numerals and moonphase at 12 o clock.
