    The Reference 533 first appeared in 1937. It is regarded by many Patek Philippe aficionados as the quintessential 1950s chronograph because of its elegantly simple Calatrava case and characteristic flat bezel. The Reference 130 houses the same movement Calibre 13" but it is aesthetically distinguished by a concave bezel. This present lot is unusual because of its rare pairing of rose gold case and pink dial, indicating that it was possibly made for sale in the South American market.
    Reference 533 is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, second edition, p. 264.
