Patek invented the pairing of the Pepertual Calendar and of the Chronograph and the reference 1518 is the first iteration of a dinasty of great references (2499, 3970, 5970, 5270, 5004, 5204) often considered as the "best of the best" for a watch collector. Only 281 exemplars were manufactured between 1941 and 1954. Stunning condition with his beautiful case, clear hallmarks (thus proving the absence of overpolishing) and his immaculate dial is a phenomenal piece for any discerning collector.
