Patek Philippe & Cie. Genève, Movement No. 124967, Case No. 255592, 53 mm, 135 g, circa 1904
A very fine Geneva half hunter pocket watch with two barrels and independent jumping seconds mechanism "seconde morte" - sold to Roberto Kohlschitter, Genoa Case: 18k gold. Dial: enamel. Movm.: bridge movement, gold screw compensation balance.
In the last two decades only about 30 watches with jumping seconds and two barrels have come on the market. This complication was built from 1840 to 1912. The movement has two curved bridges and a train for both barrels; the minute ratchet wheel construction for the stop seconds mechanism – altogether a striking and impressive set-up!
Roberto Pietro Kohlschitter , born 1866 in Monza was taken on as craftsman for watches at the Hydrographic Institute (Ufficio Idrografico) in Genoa in December 1885. In 1910 he was awarded a silver medal for his work in nautical sciences. In Milan he worked as Roberto Kohlschitter, "manifattura milanese di cronometri e strumenti di precisione".
