Breathtaking example of steel Patek Philippe ref. 1463, manufactured in 1949. The present “Tasti Tondi” stands out for its extraordinary rarity and the amazing condition.
The sublime dial is featuring the outer tachymeter scale, the railway track, applied raised steel markers with Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock position and is enhanced by the ultra rare “Freccero” signature, the prestigious Montevideo Patek Philippe retailer.
Completing the unique beauty of this stunning wristwatch is a gorgeous stainless steel Gay Frères bracelet.
Accompanied by the Patek Extract from the Archives confirming the production in 1949 and the subsequent sale in 1950, it definitely represents a dream watch for collectors of important vintage timepieces.
Launched in 1940 reference 1463 was in production for approximately 25 years. It was the first and only waterproof chronograph produced by Patek Philippe featuring a screw-back case and round pump pushers. It is believed that only 750 examples were produced with the majority in yellow gold and a very limited number in stainless steel.
