Introduced in the 1940s, this model is revered among collectors and enthusiasts for its technical ingenuity and timeless elegance. Encased in 18k yellow gold, the 1436J features a 33mm diameter case that exudes classic charm and refined aesthetics. The dial is a harmonious blend of functionality and elegance, with a beautiful glossy black finish, a tachymeter scale around the outer rim which gives a touch of sophistication to the overall design. This timepiece is particularly celebrated for its split-seconds chronograph complication, a sophisticated mechanism that allows the measurement of intermediate times while the chronograph is running. This feature, operated by a pusher in the crown, exemplifies Patek Philippe’s mastery in creating complex yet user-friendly complications. The Patek Philippe 1436J, produced in very limited numbers (around 140 pieces only), stands as a testament to the brand’s rich heritage and its continued pursuit of horological perfection. It is a coveted piece for discerning collectors who appreciate the intricate balance of tradition, innovation, and timeless design, making it a prized addition to any esteemed collection. ** This lot will require an export license/passport.
