We’re super happy to offer you a real piece of wristwatch history today. A rarity and sure an outstanding and iconic watch.
Without a doubt the Ref. 96 is one of the most legendary watches from Patek Philippe. An absolute timeless design which was back at its release as modern as it still appears nowadays.
Also know as Calatrava which stands for its subtle and elegant lines. A design Patek is worldwide known for and let the 31mm diameter appear way bigger as it might be.
An outstanding Cal. 12 from around 1910 ( 149954) , case no.611618 encased in the late 30s. Something common back at that time .
The movement is an absolute prime example of Pateks masterly skills.
The stainless steel case combined with the silver dial and the applied stainless steel baton indexes can’t be topped and is carried by a Gay Freres straight end link bracelet.
Checked by our watchmaker and running fine.
