An extremely fine and rare 18k white gold manual-winding wristwatch ref.570 with three tone Breguet numerals.
Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1956 and its subsequent sale on 22 December 1958.
This watch is thought to be one of only seven white gold examples of this reference with subsidiary seconds known to date out of which it is the only one fitted with such a complex and most charismatic three-tone dial and Breguet numerals. The fascinating combination of the champagne-coloured outer ring and the polished silver surround to the matte centre render the watch a unique and extremely elegant look.
The present watch furthermore impresses with its incredibly good condition, preserving the sharp lines of the case and not showing any signs of polishing.
The large Calatrava model reference 570 was introduced into the market in 1938, featuring either subsidiary or sweep centre seconds. It was available in stainless steel, yellow, pink and white gold and platinum.
