Patek Philippe Cal. 97443 @ Antiquorum / Eng

Mesaj pifpaf » 17 Kas 2011, 18:01

This is a unique, unknown and recently discovered Patek Philippe pocketwatch from 1894. More or less, this is the pocketwatch equivalent of the recent and current Patek Philippe reference 5208. The Caliber 97443 is a Perpetual Calendar without leap year (the years make quarter of day more, like the earth), including chronograph, and with 24 hour repeater and five minute repeater, which means: If you are at 23h38, the watch will ring 23 hits for the hours, 2 hits for the quarters and one hit for the five minutes. Exceptional and in perfect condition, LNIB ;), case number: 212850. The watch went for 2 million Swiss Francs without taxes. Bought by the Geneva Patek museum.

Check the pics to see the exceptional piece of work, especially the anglage and movement overall finishing.

Even though it was made more than a century ago both the dial and the movement look new, as you called LNIB. It is as if time hadn't touched this timepiece itself. This georgeous pocketwatch proves the company is right in their "You never really own a Patek Philippe, you merely look after it for the next generation" motto.

This pocketwatch (I prefer to call it a masterpiece of art ) is a great example of human imagination and creativity. Even centuries ago ;)
Also we have a Turkish thread about it here:
