This rare Patek Philippe Perpetual calendar timepiece comes from a collection. The watch was bought in 1989 on December 24th, it must have been a great Christmas gift. The first owner is known.
This Perpetual calendar has the automatic Patek 240 calibre. While many hardcore collectors prefer handwound perpetual calendar timepieces, the automatic movement offers some comfort. You do not have to wind it. And, if you do not wear it for longer periods, you can put it on an automatic watchwinder and can avoid to go through all the complicated resetting of the perpetual calendar functions.
It does not happen very often that I get to see such rare and exclusive timepieces. Quite a stunner, in excellent condition. I assume the collector is not wearing it much. Probably because he has too many choices…
The perpetual calendar is complemented by a moonphase.
And you can see, all paperwork, box, and revision documents are included with this watch.
Hope you enjoy my little excursion to the world of Patek Philippe.
