The ref. 1436 is one of the finest replica Patek ever and one of only two vintage split second chronograph references produced by the “old maison“. Normally, these were cased in yellow gold, and only a very small number were completed in pink gold. However, based on researches, only two stainless steel editions were produced during the 1940s.
The replica Patek Philippe Steel Split Seconds Chronograph Replica Reference 1436 to be auctioned here is thus one of only two known reference 1436 in stainless steel, made and completed in the 1940s. It was first sold in 1949 and it has only seen three owners since its original purchase.
Replica Patek Philippe watch proprietors to personalize their watches with various straps every so often.
