This Patek Philippe "icon" in platinum was produced in very small quantities from 1981 to 2002. Only 7 pieces are known to exist. The watch on offer stems from the 1st series which was produced from 1981 to 1992, and is is the oldest of this series on the market. The original platinum diamond bezel has the correct number 827.
We would like to thank Dr. Helmut Crott for his research on this watch.

With an excerpt from the Patek Philippe Archives, which confirms that the diamond dial and the diamond bezel were crafted in 1982, and that the sale of the watch took place on 26 July 1983.
