A MASSIVE PATEK PHILIPPE NICKEL EIGHT-DAY WATCH
We have only seen one of these before at the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva! Here we have on offer a massive 8-day half hunter, key-wind and key-set pocket watch from 1868. At 70 mm diameter and powered by a 25 ligne caliber, the massive mainspring contains enough power to maintain the watch for eight days. This was made as a special order for a client based in Budapest. Magnify the image to see the gilt movement with counterpoised straight line lever escapement with moustache escapement and compensation balance with gold timing screws and flat balance spring.
