Who can at the same time be daring while managing to maintain a high level of balance in a wristwatch?
Patek Philippe, of course. The Ref 1491 is a clear example of this: succeeding in combining a very sober and classic design with "an engraving" such as the unusual design of the lugs called "curly". The reference is quite rare to find and sought after, and the estimated value can be considered "affordable" if we consider that it is still a vintage Patek.

was produced between 1940 and 1965 and bears "signs" of the post Deco period. The dimensions of the 35mm by 9mm thick 18k yellow gold case are slightly below today's classic timepieces, but you know the Maison has never liked oversizes. Dauphine hour markers and hands reassure us and take us back to the Calatravas of our day.
the example you see is from 1950 The dial is matt silver and is fitted with a manual mechanical movement Calibre 12″ - 120, rhodium-plated, machined at Cotès de Genève, a blued Breguet bimetallic balance spring and is fitted with a swan-neck micro-adjustment. The Ref. 1491 will later be equipped with the 27 sc caliber until the end of production.
the watch is delivered with the extract of Archive issued by the parent company
