Description

This 1956 yellow gold vintage Patek Philippe Ref# 1578 round case is accompanied with an Extract from the Archives.

This 18kt yellow gold example has an original dial with no signs of blemishes or pitting, with the raised hard enamel all intact. The markers are known as raised laped yellow gold indexes and center sweep second hand. The watch features faceted lugs known as "Spider lugs". Overall the watch is in excellent condition for its age and has very crisp and legible hallmarks.

Patek Philippe produced the reference 1578 from 1943 until approximately 1965. Like its chronograph counterpart reference 1579, reference 1578 is immediately distinguished by its faceted "spider lugs". The model was cased in yellow, pink and white gold, featuring both subsidiary seconds and centre seconds. The centre seconds variant was produced in two series. The first featured indirect sweep center seconds, while the second featured calibre 27SC.
