If you have been collecting watches for a while I think you’re going to appreciate the following timepiece. One could argue that the word “RARE” gets tossed around a bit too easily but I think this is one case where the moniker is well deserved. I am pleased to offer for sale this 1882 timepiece 100% ORIGINAL POCKET WATCH. Indeed, it was made by the venerable PATEK PHILIPPE & Company.

 

It is a registered design model that features an ORIGINAL porcelain sunken dial, GOLD PLATED CASE and signed HIGHEST QUALITY original movement with the RAISED & SCREWED THREEFOLD in ROSE GOLD CENTER JEWEL CHATON, WINDING WHEELS WITH WOLF TEETH TRANSMISSION, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL, SNAIL (CLAMSHELL) MICROMETER REGULATOR and BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. 

 

Patek Philippe & Co. is to watches what Rolls Royce is to cars— synonymous with the best. This prestigious Swiss watchmaking firm is arguably the most famous manufacturer of timepieces worldwide. To own a Patek Philippe watch remains a symbol of wealth and importance: kings and queens were their clients, while other watchmakers frantically copied them – imitation being the highest form of flattery, and moreover a means to a more lucrative sale with the help of the famous Patek Philippe signature. The Patek Philippe legend continues to grow and fascinate. The soaring prices achieved by Patek Philippe watches at auction—particularly within the last decade — prove to what degree these precious timepieces are sought-after by collectors. One collector paid $11,002,500 for a rare Patek Philippe pocket watch, thereby earning it a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records. 

 

This timepiece features an ORIGINAL handsome sunken white PORCELAIN enamel dial is in excellent to mint condition, absolutely no chips of abuse. It features a 60 minute checkered outer track border, elegant black enamel painted Roman numerals, original blue steel Spade-style hands and a sunken sub-seconds dial with 60 second outer chapter and “sweep” original blue steel seconds hand. 

Signed DUHME & Co in black enamel lettering below the XII and further signed CINCINNATI.  

 

It is a registered design model that features a THREE piece GOLD PLATED case with screwed back covering. This timepiece is ORIGINAL GOLDEN POCKET WATCH. 

The front lid with ACRYLIC CRYSTAL is in excellent condition. 

Turning the watch over I see that the back lid is in excellent condition. The inside of the outer case lid is signed GARANTEED 20 YEARS WC.Co with the case reference number #8.902.461. 

The winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly.

 

 

Peeking inside I find a spotless and HIGHEST QUALITY, manual wind nickel finished lever escapement movement with the RAISED & SCREWED THREEFOLD in ROSE GOLD CENTER JEWEL CHATON, WINDING WHEELS WITH WOLF TEETH TRANSMISSION, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL, SNAIL (CLAMSHELL) MICROMETER REGULATOR and BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. 

To enhance the power coming through the train, the center wheel is provided with a chaton jewel, which is mounted in rosé gold and is screwed threefold. Only jeweled holes minimize reliably the friction due to enormous driving power of the mainspring and consequently the going barrel. The screwed chaton allows the precise adjustment of the wheel and the quick change of the bearing jewel if necessary. The further wheel arbors are protected by jewels. 

One bridge holds the escape wheel; the escape wheel bearing is furnished with an ANOTHER STEEL END PIECE. This end piece is used to minimize the axial clearance of the wheel arbor and enhances the precision of this important element of the escapement. End jewels also protect the stuffs from dirt and dust. 

The movement signed PATEK PHILIPPE & Co – GENEVA – DUHME & Co - ADJUSTED. Also it signed the movement serial number #64.205. This serial number corresponds to 1882 production date as per published records of PATEK PHILIPPE & Co. 

 

This beautiful GOLDEN POCKET WATCH has the Original movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. 

 

Diameter (with crown):        62.00 mm
Diameter (without crown):   50.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:      42.00 mm
Thickness:                          16.00 mm

This rare watch winds and set smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
