Patek Philippe Steel Watches book - Here it is

Message par mstanga le Lun 01 Nov 2010, 21:12

Today I went to John Goldberger's house to talk about his new recent book: PATEK PHILIPPE STEEL WATCHES.
The book has a cork cover resuming the famous Nautilus ref. 3700 box.
The book is structured in 12 chapters:

Pocket Watches and Clocks
Round Wristwatches
Rectangular Wristwatches
Water-proof Wristwatches
Chronograph Wristwatches
Perpetual calendar Wristwatches
Military Wristwatches<br>Amagnetic Wristwatches
Self-Winding Wristwatches
Nautilus
Modern Wristwatches
Watch Parts

One hundred and eighty-seven superb examples, including the models of today’s production, traced back through time thanks to painstaking research, with the collaboration of the world’s leading collectors and connoisseurs and professionally pho- tographed to show the most minute details and characteristics of the movement, case and dial of each timekeeper.

Without breath are pages starting from 311 to 328 in which you can find photos of the only 4 ever made steel ref. 1518, and unique ref. 1591 and ref. 1526<br><br>I think this is the most detailed research ever dedicated to the finest and rarest masterpieces of Patek Philippe’s production cased in steel. Over 900 color illustrations and 800 descriptions provide the collector and watch enthusiast with invaluable information including recent discoveries on reference numbers, dials, movements, related calibers and the year of production of each watch.

I want to thank John Goldberger for donating me a copy of his beautiful book, a must have for every Patek Philippe collectors and fans.

Ciao
Marco

En fait, ce qui surprend si on ne connaît pas bien l'histoire de Patek... est l'épaisseur de l'ouvrage. Avec la vision de la collection actuelle où les montres en acier sont plutôt rares, on a tendance à oublier ce riche passé.

Le livre a vraiment l'air magnifique.

The 96 is the base of the calatrava.
Little (31mm) with long and fine lugs, this reference has known a hundred of different dials especially at the beginning and lasts a long time.
This one is absolutely marvelous with his special two tone dial.

Another levely example from next sale at Christies (even though not in steel):
