A very fine and very rare stainless steel manual-winding wristwatch ref.1513.
With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of this watch with silvered dial and raised hour markers in steel in 1946 and its subsequent sale on November 26th., 1946.
The present 1513 by Patek Philippe encased in stainless steel is very rare amongst collectors, with only 7 known to date. It is fitted with a silvered dial with Arabic and baton hour markers, and a subsidiary dial at 6 o’clock for constant seconds. The lugs are thin with a beautiful curvature, making this piece extremely elegant on one's wrist.
The present example is extremely rare and in well-preserved overall condition.
Case: no signs of over polishing
Dial: likely untouched
