This heavy 1973 Patek Philippe 18k. solid white gold vintage watch was rumored to have inspired the Apple watch by design. This Patek was sold at Christie’s and comes with extract from the archives, service pouch and original receipt from Christie’s. The 18k. solid white gold case is not small-measures 29x34mm. which is fairly large looking (in my opinion). The amazing blue dial is signed ‘Arte Suizo’. The blue rimmed crystal creates a large appearance on the wrist.The bracelet is soldered (fixed) and has and Argentinian manufacture mark. Arte Suizo retailed Patek Philippe in Columbia, so it makes sense the bracelet is South American. Perhaps it was an option to add this bracelet in South America. The fine caliber 23-300 manual winding movement is keeping time. This watch comes with a Patek service box and pouch. We are selling this for a client who is often changing his collecting habits.
