Key Features

Extremely high-quality conversion watch with the original Patek Philippe movement made for Tiffany & Co. The Visitor Watch or ‘guest watch’ concept – formulated by Tiffany & Co. – involves wristwatches with a horizontal dial arrangement. When a male guest would come to visit a lady, he would take off his watch and place it on the side table; with this horizontal design it shows off the watch – and the time – very well.

With its great 41mm king-size & thickness, this timepiece is perfect for wearing on the wrist. The original enamel dial has been hand-inscribed with the ‘TIFFANY & CO’ signature, and PPCo on the back. According to Patek Philippe movement serial number charts, the year of production year was about 1901.
