Patek Philippe 1491 “Gubelin”
If you would ask us, Patek Philippe definitely did an amazing job by creating a dress watch that distinguishes itself in all possible areas without losing any of its elegance. Thanks to that, this is probably one of the most beautiful and charming watches Patek Philippe has ever created.
This Patek Philippe, with reference 1491, is made out of 18K yellow gold and dates back to the early 50’s. This reference features the beloved “scrolled lugs” and is fitted with a perfect and clean silvered dial including a refined black minute track. Most notable, is the signing of the Swiss family-owned jewellery retailer “Gubelin”. The watch is accompanied by the extract of the archives and original buckle. Its condition is lovely and shapes, as well as hall marks, are still clearly visible.
The watch is not only gorgeous looking but also very accurate (for ’50 standards) as it runs on the ‘Seal of Geneva’ signed, outstanding, hand winding manufacture calibre 27CS. So, also when you are a ‘what matters is on the inside’ kind of guy, this is the right watch for you.
