Rare First Place Time Trials Patek Philippe 18k Pocket Watch

by Patek Philippe

Manual winding; 20 jewels; Guillaume Balance; marked with extra serial number by balance wheel for time trials submission. 18k yellow gold case (50mm diameter). White enamel dial with black Breguet numerals; sub seconds at 6 o'clock. This watch is in spectacular mint condition.

First Prize Award winning watch from the Geneva Astronomical Observatory Timing Contest of 1925-1926. This exquisite time piece scored an amazing 780 points which was a comparable score achieved by many of the tourbillions from this time period. A similar one of these incredibly rare watches recently sold in Christie’s Geneva on May 16, 2016 for USD $44,940.00.

From 1900-1939 there were only 187 First Prize winners, which makes this watch an important piece of horological history. The Original Patek Philippe archive certificate also references the First Place Prize.

Archive papers and copies of timing contest certificates from Geneva Observatory are included as well as the original box.
