Matthew's Note

This is the holy grail of the Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronographs. It is the reference 1518 in 18k yellow gold and is the great great grandfather of today’s Patek Philippe reference 5270. This particular watch is a great example with an untouched dial and a strong case with a deep hallmark and thick lugs. The dial of the 1518 models typically have been cleaned or refinished because it is not a water resistant type case like on its successor Patek Philippe reference 2499. The dial on this 1518 is untouched with its original lacquer finish and hard enamel writing. The case is very strong and maybe has been polished one time but very lightly. The movement is minty and is running perfectly. This is a great opportunity to own a great example of a very complicated and collectible Patek Philippe. Comes on a Patek Philippe band with a an 18k Patek Philippe buckle. Archive is included.
