1589: Patek Philippe introduced the reference 1589 in 1944 when gentlemen’s dress watches were typically manufactured with a 32-34mm diameter cases. The reference featured an Antoine Gerlach-fabricated oversized case measuring 36mm in diameter, however it had an even bigger look and feel thanks to its extended attached lugs. Production was limited to approximately eight years and made in two series, the first with the caliber 12-120, followed by the caliber 12-400 such as the present watch. The Stern Frères dials were typically silvered or pink with Roman or square hour markers and outer pearled minute dots, making this diamond-set dial extremely rare.
