Patek Philippe 1463 Chronograph "Tasti Tondi" in Steel
When it made its debut in 1940 the Patek 1463 became the manufacturers first water resistant chronograph. The importance of the 1463 transcends beyond its marvelous design and mechanical works. It represents Patek Philippe’s ingenuity and forward thinking during an incredibly trying moment in history. The limited production of the 1463 yielded very few examples in steel, making ours a very important watch. When it comes to Patek Philippe one of the most sought after metals is steel, which definitely heights the wow factor of the 1463 chronograph pictured. Ours was manufactured in 1950 and is put together by a fantastic steel “rice bead” bracelet.
