This full hunter, 18k yellow gold pocket watch with enamel dial, perpetual calendar, moon phases and minute repeater was made in 1880 and sold for the first time on April 19th 1881. The repeater calibre was most likely made by a third party and purchased by Patek with the specific modifications requested to add the calendar mechanism to it. The enamel dial may have originally held the brand name on the lower section of the dial covering the moon-phases disc. The watch has been well worn during its life. On removing the winding crown, the winding crown tube is visibly worn through contact with the crown, and the bow for the chain also shows wear from the use of a chain supporting the bow.  As with all watches of this age they were never water resistant and there are signs of slight corrosion on the steelwork.
