Why We Love it

Though the famous Calatrava is — for good reason — perhaps the best known of Patek Philippe’s incredible dress watches, there are myriad others that deserve recognition.

From the rectangular Gondolo to the curvaceous Golden Ellipse, these timepieces, though simple in design, beg a closer look for their classic proportions and strict attention to detail. Patek has been producing such wristwatches for roughly a century of its 180-plus years, and shows no signs of slowing down.

The particular dress watch we have here, however, is special: Dating to the middle of World War II, it’s a Reference 425 with a ‘Tegolino’ rectangular case. This reference debuted in 1934 and was in production until 1960 when it was superseded by the Reference 2461 — quite a run for a single model, if you ask us. Art Deco-inspired and classically handsome, it stood alongside the Calatrava Reference 96 in the Patek catalog as one of the maison’s flagship dress watches.

Housed in a 20mm-wide rose gold ‘Tegolino’ case with a faceted acrylic crystal, and an unsigned crown, it features a matching salmon Stern Freres dial with applied gold indices, a matching dauphine handset, an engine-turned sub-seconds dial at 6 oclock with a feuille hand, and is powered by the manually-wound Calibre 9 90 — one of Patek’s finest non-round movements.

Historically significant, fetching, and in impressive condition, this Reference 425 comes with an extract from the Patek Philippe archives detailing its manufacture date of 1943 and its sale date of May 9, 1944 — just under a month before the invasion of Europe by Allied forces. 

Surely, if you can find a more compelling time-only dress watch to tell us about, we’re all ears. But if not, may we suggest this ‘Tegolino!’

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing signs of light previous polishing and light signs of wear from age and use. Satin 'salmon' dial with applied indices is in very good condition showing light patination throughout with matching 'dauphine' handset. Unsigned crown.

Brand Story

+
Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe is one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world with an uninterrupted watchmaking history. Few international luxury brands carry the gravitas of their name, and for good reason. The firm's commitment to excellence in horological manufacture is unflinching, and their track record of innovation in design without peer. They continue to lead the industry, and even their fiercest competitors have nothing but the utmost respect for the company.

From the simple elegance of their Calatrava line to the stunning study in miniaturization that is reference 1518 perpetual calendar to the modern reference 5750P chiming watch, Patek’s catalog is chock full of some of the most elegant and complicated timepieces ever made. Family-owned and completely independent, the firm has the freedom to do what it wants — such as discontinue one of the world’s most beloved steel luxury sport watches, the reference 5711 — when it wants.

Owning a Patek Philippe is for many the ultimate goal of timepiece collecting, and for a certain type, the only timepieces they collect. Whichever way you look at it, there is no questioning the elegance of design, superlative manufacture of their cases and movements, or the sheer elegance and emotion that comes from owning one.

Of course for a brand that is steeped in heritage, we are told “You never actually own a Patek Philippe…”

Well, you know the rest.
