Essay

The reference 1450 was produced by Patek Philippe from 1940 until 1960. This piece was affectionally nicknamed the ‘Top Hat’ by collectors due to its elongated case design and profile which was produced by Markowski. The ‘Top Hat’ reference 1450 was available in 18ct rose, yellow and white gold and also in platinum.
