Patek Philippe Jump Hour Chronograph
Fine, handsome and very rare Patek Philippe 18K gold jump hour chronograph
antique pocket watch retailed by Jacques & Marcus, circa 1889.
Fine white enamel dial (clean hairline) with aperture for the jumping hours, black markings, and
blued steel hands. Heavy engine turned case with coin milled band and chronograph
button in the crown. First quality nickel damascened 25 jewel movement with the
chronograph work on the back plate and wolf tooth winding.
The dial, case and movement signed by the retailer. The movement and
case signed by Patek Philippe. With certificate from Patek Philippe.
Patek Philippe watches with enamel dials with jumping hours are very rare and particularly so
when combined with a chronograph.
Formerly the property of John Harsen Rhoades Jr., a prominent New York
banker who was talked of as a probable candidate for Mayor in 1890.
Diameter 51 mm
NOTE: The small circles or shadows in some of our photos
are reflections of the camera lens. Since this watch is much smaller than in the
enlarged photos, a tiny blemish or imperfection that you could not see when looking
at the actual watch can appear very large in the photos.
