This is a rare early Patek wristwatch with an oversized curved stainless-steel case. This watch is all original and is in remarkable condition considering it is almost one hundred years old.

The watch sports an early Patek sector dial with the long signature. The enamel on the signature and markers is raised and intact. There is a small spot on the dial from age, but the spotting is stable in nature, and it should not be cleaned or restored. The rare two-tone dial features Arabic numerals at 6 and 12, and an art deco style chapter ring with railway divisions. The hands are Stainless steel leaf style.

One remarkable feature of the watch is the size of the case which is quite large for the period before the 1950s when watches became more flamboyant. The watch is 42 mm from lug to lug and features a curved case design and snap back case closure. The curved crystal follows the shape of the watch and is in excellent condition.

This Patek comes with an Extract from the Archives, confirming the production of this watch in 1927. The watch is further accompanied by a vintage Patek Philippe box. Dial, case and movement signed.
