The movement is Patek Philippe's ultra-slim (2.3mm) 23-300 calibre; chronometer rated. The bridges are engaved "adjusted to heat, cold, isochronism and five (5) positions". This level of adjusment is the highest offered by Patek Philippe, thus the movement is decorated with Geneva stripes and carries the "Cotes de Genevre" stamp. The timing data shown here is testament to the quality of this watch despite its years of service. (We are unable to give an accurate age of the watch other than that it is most likely from the 1970's)
The case is solid 18 carat gold - fully hall-marked as shown in the photographs. The case is in very good condition, and snaps together firmly and securely. The watch is currently offered on a Hirsch lizard grain strap and does not have the original Patek Philippe buckle. It does however have genuine 18 carat gold, side-lever spring bars from the manufacturer. Ths dial and hands show some deterioration and minor marks from previous repairers, which we have tried to illustrate clearly in the images. The presentation case is not the one which the watch originally came in, although it is genuine Patek Philippe and contemporaneous with the watch. The presentation box is for sale separately for £150 as an option if the watch is also purchased.
