Footnotes

  • This particular watch case is by Jean-Pierre Hagmann, Master Case maker for Patek Philippe. The last Patek Philippe by Jean-Pierre Hagmann to sell at auction was in these rooms on the 17th of December 2008 (lot 306) that particular example was a minute repeater, but not split seconds and was in a different style case.

    This watch has a wonderful heavy yet elegant case and a fantastically finished movement, the repeating function is very clear and audible showing the true resonance of the platinum case.

    Jean-Pierre Hagmann was born in Geneva in 1940 and during his career as a Master Case maker, Hagmann worked with the top technicians and skilled artisan in their workshops, including Ponti Gennari, Gay Freres, G. Brera, J-P Ecoffery and G. Crosier. In 1984, Jean-Pierre Hagmann established his own company with his unique master case maker's mark: JHP. Today Jean-Pierre Hagmann is the point of reference for the case-making at Patek Philippe and is still the most respected case-maker in the world.
