Patek NaviQuartz, Observatory Chronometer for Boat & Office

Patek Philippe NaviQuartz: From Boat to Office, Desk Clock

CHF 4,000

This iconic desk or yacht clock made by Patek in the mid 1970s but developed in 1969 and 1970 in parallel to the famous first Swiss quartz wristwatch movement Beta21 -- a horological milestone. It comes with its original mahogany wood box, that makes it water resistant -- perfect for boat office. The case as well as the box is in good condition, with just minor signs of use and time: a minor scratch in the glass of the box and a dent in the gold-plated case (see marks in 4th photo). This model is the sought after big-sized desk clock by Patek that works equally perfect for office & yacht.

And nowadays, with the enhancement of the regular home-office to either pool-office or the absolute high point: boat-office, this works fine on Lake Zurich next to Ufenau island.

These iconic desk sculptures have started to get more attention lately, although not yet as much in focus as the horological relevance suggests but especially the first version is today a rare and sought-after icon.
