Patek Philippe Vintage Beta 21 Jumbo 3587
An extraordinary watch this Patek Philippe Beta 21..before the Nautilus before all the hype this watch was the status symbol par excellence in the good old days of European 70s opulence.
A feat of mechanics (or electronics) the Beta 21 movement was ideated in conjunction with the top Swiss manufacturers to counter the quartz crisis of the time, also one of the largest case size watches offered by Patek Philippe before modern history.
The 18k gold case measuring 43mm is in nice overall conditions retaining it’s sharpness and crisp hallmarks. The original crown is in nice conditions.
The champagne dial is in excellent conditions along with the hand set.
The quartz Beta 21 movement is running well and keeping time.
The bracelet is in overall nice conditions, will fit 7.5 inch wrist.
A Patek Philippe that is a piece of history, a show stopper and a conversation piece all at once.
