This master clock is one of a very few bearing the signatures of both Patek Philippe and Rolex. The clock is entirely made by Patek Philippe, the case is decorated with the Rolex livery and the case and dial bear the Rolex name. The mottled green color scheme of the case can be found on several other models of Rolex display clocks dating from the 1950s & 60s.
