1593: Was launched in 1944, and is often considered one of Patek Philippe's most attractive rectangular-shaped designs. The 1593 is also known among collectors as the "Hour Glass" model due to its streamlined form with its concave and curved sides. The model was produced for approximately 20 years. Large enough for modern tastes, the perfectly proportioned deeply curved flared case and curved crystal serve to enhance the richness of this pink gold case. Mostly produced in yellow gold, examples in Rose gold are very rare.
