The Patek Philippe "Carré Galbé" is an elegant and collectible timepiece. This watch features a beautiful dial with Arabic numerals and applied gold indexes, which give the watch a clean look. It is also worth noting the complex and revolutionary movement inside. It wasn't until Patek Philippe launched the 27SC that Zenith's notorious 133 movement was overshadowed. The 133 was known for its incorporation of a center seconds hand (something rare at the time). But the Patek movement proved to be more effective and accurate, which enabled Patek Philippe to prolong the movement's production until the 1970's. The 2514-1 comes with a double-signed dial (Patek Philippe and Gubelin). The second signature comes from Gubelin, a well-known Swiss timepiece dealer that has enjoyed a lasting relationship with Patek Philippe.
About the Brand:
Patek Philippe is arguably the most famous and recognized watch manufacturer in the world. Antoine Norbert de Patek and Jean-Adrien Philippe founded Patek Philippe in 1851 in Geneva, Switzerland. This company was the first to introduce wristwatches, perpetual calendars, split seconds, chronographs and minute repeaters into the market. Since 1932 the Stern family controls the company making Patek Philippe one of the last family owned timepiece manufacturers.
