A very fine and extremely rare platinum manual-winding wristwatch ref.570 with sweep centre seconds.
With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of this watch in 1962 and its subsequent sale on October 24th., 1962.
The present watch, fitted with calibre 27 SC, is particularly rare as it is cased in platinum. To date, only nine examples of this centre seconds version in platinum have been offered in the market. Fresh to the market, it is furthermore preserved in very good overall condition.
Not only the original and unrestored dial has taken a very warm color, but the watch also impresses with its crisp case and the remarkably well defined bezel and lugs. Its simplicity, elegance in the design, together with the rarity of the case material and the large diameter, renders it one of the most exclusive vintage time only wristwatches from the Patek Philippe production.
