Watches & Accessories
During the early 20th century, highly decorated, ultra-thin ladies’ pendant watches were very much in fashion. Typically worn on a chain around the neck or with a lapel pin, these pieces were meant to convey status, and examples from Patek Philippe did not cut any corners. This example from 1909 features a blue enamel over engine turned case with a hand painted floral surround; the center is set with an elaborately, hand-engraved filigree set with diamonds. The gilt dial is finished with hand-painted Breguet numerals and Louis XV hands. A similar example from 1909 can be seen in the Patek Philippe Museum book, Volume 2, page 102.
