Product Description

This particularly attractive golf pocket watch has a square case with concave, tapering sides and an exquisitely engraved bezel with bevelled, engraved hour markers. The case is framed by a gold cord – the design of which is repeated in the 41 cm long, Gay Frères chain.
This timepiece comes from its original owner and was purchased in 1962, which is confirmed by the original bill accompanying the watch. It is extremely well preserved – the watch as well as well as its accessories were always treated with utmost care and have hardly been worn. The dial has a warm silver tone, enamelled radial hour markers and the black enamel "Patek Philippe Genève" logo, which is still raised.

Patek Philippe’s reference 785 was available from 1960 to 1964 in 18 K yellow or rose gold. The case was created by F. Baumgartner after a design by the famous Gilbert Albert dating from 1959; Albert’s unique and distinctive pieces are highly sought after by collectors and museums alike.
The young jewellery designer Gilbert Albert began his cooperation with Patek Philippe in 1955 – the common goal was the creation of a series of unusual and magnificent timepieces. Albert was an outstanding artist who was passionate about his work and took his inspiration from modern art as created by Brancusi and Mondrian; the unorthodox and bold cases he produced for Patek Philippe are as fascinating today as they were on the day they were made.
