Essay: The Patek Philippe reference 533 was in production from 1937 to 1957, and was made in very restricted numbers.
It is estimated Patek Philippe produced a total of 350 pieces, of which exceedingly small numbers were cased in rose gold. The reference 533 is known for its cylinder case with flat, angular bezel and distinguishable elongated lugs.
