Ref. 130 Production of this reference started in 1934. It was made in stainless steel, yellow gold and pink gold; only three are known in white gold. It is one of the most desirable and sought-after sport watches ever created by the Patek Philippe firm. Sophisticated collectors appreciate this model’s perfect proportions, its large and clearly-read dial, encircled by a slender, concave bezel which gives the dial an even greater luminosity. I This reference was first used with Victorin Piguet ebauches, and later with Lemania ebauches. To date, one example is known of a single-button chronograph with Ref. 130, that features an experimental 12’’’ movement. Reference 130 was made with either Breguet numerals, Roman, Arabic, or mixed numerals.
A white gold chronograph, Ref. 96, was sold by Antiquorum in October 1992, lot 599.
