An extremely fine and rare 18k yellow gold manual winding wristwatch ref.570 with sweep seconds hand.
With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of this watch with lapped indexes in 1958 and its subsequent sale November 18th 1959.
The Patek Philippe reference 570 was first introduced in 1938 and was in production until 1972. The case has a diameter of just over 35 milometers , which was quite large at that time and today is the perfect size of a time only wristwatch. The reference was also highly appreciated because of its large flat bezel that gives the watch more presence on the wrist.
This yellow gold 570 is fitted with the more sought after sweep centre seconds, the case is preserved in excellent overall condition with strong hallmarks to the side of the case and underneath the lugs. The dial is very charismatic and nicely raised hard enamel signature. Overall this is a very appealing 570 in wonderful original condition.
