PATEK PHILIPPE POCKET WATCH PLATINUM TIFFANY
Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. have had a historical partnership resulting in co-branded or co-signed watches. The collaboration dates back to the late 1800s when Tiffany & Co. became one of the first retailers to carry Patek Philippe timepieces in the United States. Watches with both the Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. signatures are highly sought after by collectors due to the combination of Patek Philippe’s exceptional craftsmanship and Tiffany & Co.’s reputation for luxury and quality. Patek Philippe watches co-signed by Tiffany & Co. typically feature both brand names on the dial. The co-signature adds an extra layer of exclusivity and prestige to the timepiece. These co-branded watches often fetch a premium in the vintage watch market.
The present Patek Philippe Pocket watch exemplifies an exceptional century-long collaboration with Tiffany. Its rarity extends beyond the distinguished Tiffany signature on the dial, encompassing several other aspects that significantly enhance its collectibility and desirability. Crafted in platinum in 1926, a notably special feat, this pocket watch would have commanded an extraordinarily high price at the time. Adding to its allure, the case, bezel, and bow are adorned with yellow gold oak leaves on black enamel. The dial proudly displays “Breguet” numerals, undoubtedly among the most iconic minute markers of the 20th century. A striking feature lies on the caseback, where an engraved inscription, likely from the original owner at the time of purchase, reads: “The plans of a day depend on the morning. The plans of the year depend on spring. The plans of a life depend on diligence.” These eloquent words provoke our imagination as we contemplate the identity and life experiences of the original owner of this extraordinary timepiece.
Accompanied by an Extract from the archives, this pocket watch comes with confirmation of all its features and the date of sale in 1927.
