In the 1930s, Patek Philippe introduced their first chronograph wristwatches in the Reference 130 and 530. Shortly after, in 1940, the illustrious brand released their first (and only in the 20th century) waterproof chronograph, the Reference 1463. The challenge with creating a waterproof chronograph lay in the pushers, which is why the pushers on the 1463 differ from the 130 and 530. These round pushers with attractive decorative ends inspired the nickname tasti tondi by more modern collectors. Tondi (or singularly Tondo) is circular artwork created during the Renaissance era, short for the Italian word rotondo or round. As few as 750 examples were created between 1940 and the late 1960s, with only 400 being yellow gold, making top condition examples a rare find. This wonderful example offered here features a fantastic, sharp case with clear hallmarks and a warm gold patina. The beautiful dial also features a nice warm hue with some light patina just inside the case at 3 oclock and free of any notable flaws.
