This exceptional monopusher pocket chronograph is unusually beautiful and elegant with it's rare pulsation scale on the exquisite two-tone silvered sector dial. Due to long storage a layer of gold oxide has formed on the case. This is highly appreciated by collectors, it can, however, easily be removed by polishing the surface.
This piece was modernized probably in the 1940s by the most prestigious Patek Philippe commission agent, the "Walser-Wald" company in Buenos Aires. The exquisite movement from 1905 was fitted with a then modern and highly attractive dial, as well as the case was adapted to the taste of the time.
