In the 1910s, wristwatches gained increasing popularity among businessmen, becoming a prominent accessory. A few years prior to the onset of the Great Depression in 1929, Patek Philippe crafted the present wristwatch, adhering to the impeccable style standards of that era. The case exhibits a two-body composition with a hinged case back, very thin straight lugs, and is meticulously fashioned in 18k yellow gold. Notably, this case stands out for its distinctive larger size, measuring 24 × 42 mm, making it a contemporary and noteworthy timepiece compared to other Patek Philippe productions of the same period. Referred to by Italian collectors as “carta da gioco” (playing card), the design was conceived to sit perfectly on the wrist, and despite its age, it has been well-preserved with minimal signs of wear, notably visible oxidation on the case. The silvered dial enhances readability with its generously sized painted Arabic Dauphine numerals, an inner-minute track, and elegant blued spade/pear-shaped hands, creating a harmonious and timeless aesthetic. This exquisite timepiece stands as a remarkable testament to Patek Philippe’s unwavering commitment to quality and foresight, showcasing an utterly contemporary design that anticipated its time. Despite being well over a century old, the watch remains in exceptional condition, a true marvel that has gracefully retained its history and grandeur. The enduring legacy of this watch speaks volumes about the timeless craftsmanship and enduring elegance synonymous with Patek Philippe.
