    I recently picked up a 26 page Patek Philippe catalog and wanted to post the info here as a reference for our Patek collectors. The catalog is undated, but the latest date mentioned in the text is the 1906 exhibition in Milan. There is only a single image shown of a "Bracelet Watch" and the rest of the catalog covers the various styles of men's and woman's pocketwatches.

    Each line below will open a link to a photo of the catalog page described ...

    Hi Ed -

    It worked for me just now ... perhaps the server had a temporary problem with a few pages tonight? Please let me know if you find the same problem with these pages again tomorrow.

    Fred,
    You are correct, there must have been a "glitch" in cyberspace last night. This morning all of the pages will display properly.
    Thanks again for posting this most interesting catalog. :clap:

    My only disappointment with this one is that I don't have the "price sheet" that is mentioned toward the end of the index.

    I would be very interested to know what original list price on these watches was ... especially the complicated watches shown.

    Does anyone have ballpark figures for original prices of these?

    Fred
