"From Boat to Office": Precision by Patek Philippe for the Boat-Office
Patek Philippe NaviQuartz, Observatory Chronometer for Yacht & Office
- Time (Hour, Minute, Central Second)
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 outstanding condition, with just absolute minor signs of use and time -- perfect for home office. This model is the sought after brushed aluminum cased desk clock 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.
The condition of this desk chronometer is really wonderful: Not only the wood but also the faceted glasses and the marine-accurate quartz movement are in excellent condition, without issues and a almost 50 years old desk Patek in close-to-mint condition.
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 aluminium version is today a rare and sought-after icon.
