PATEK PHILIPPE Ref. 3601-1 "Beyer"
This is a true and nice example of vintage luxury. The Patek Philippe Ref. 3601-1 is from the 1960s. Case and bracelet are made out of 18k solid gold. This was probably one of the most luxury and expensive watches available back then. The watch is allover in beautiful vintage condition. The highlight of this timepiece is the gold dial which is in perfect condition. The dial kills it with a rare "Beyer" double signing. The movement is a cal. 428-255C movement, running well and keeping time without being serviced. Because of the exclusiveness these watches have only been made in small numbers. What makes this watch even more rare and collectable is the double signing with "Beyer". This is a true WRISTCLASSIC by an iconic brand. These kinds of watches were the best of the best in terms of quality, and with the addition of one of the most beautiful bracelets of the period.
BEYER is a jewelry and watch shop in the heart of Zürich. Since Beyer sold all kind of luxury brands, some of the watches were produced with a Beyer-signed dial, especially for this distribution.
