Item Details
Description
Patek Philippe, Genève, Ref. 1463, movement no. 868647, case no. 684680, made in 1953, sold on august 23, 1956.
Very fine and rare, 18K yellow gold, water-resistant, gentlemen's wristwatch with roundbutton chronograph, tachometer graduated to 300 units, 30-minute register, Patek Philippe leather strap and Patek Philippe 18K yellow gold buckle, accompanied by an Extract from the Archives

Reference 1463 was the first water-resistant chronograph to be produced by Patek Philippe. It is also their only vintage waterproof chronograph. The model was launched in 1940 and was based on the cal. 13'''-130 used by the company since the 1920s. It remained in production until 1965.
The reference can be divided into two series: the first series was with a plain bezel; the second,launched around 1947, had a stepped bezel. This watch is one of the earliest with the stepped bezel. The majority of the 1463 models were produced in yellow gold, while some were cased in pink gold and rare examples in stainless steel.Ref. 1463 was the last iconic chronograph to be made by Patek Philippe, and it has become one of the most sought after by collectors, ideally suited to the dynamic, modern businessman.
