This watch dates to 1956, meaning it likely sat at a retailer waiting for a home for a few years before it was given to Rosell B. Perkins in 1959 after the then-governor’s first year in Albany. The two men had worked together for over a decade and both served in President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Sub-Cabinet. When Rockefeller was elected Governor of New York, he appointed Perkins as his Counsel. The watch’s screw-down caseback is engraved “R.B.P / Jan. 1 – Mar. 25, 1959 / N.A.R” to commemorate the occasion.
The reference 1463 chronograph was Patek Philippe’s Replica first waterproof chronograph, though it’s much better suited to a beach chair in front of Hotel Carleton than taking a dip. From its introduction in the early 1940s through the release of the reference 5070 in 1998, it was the only waterproof chrono made by Patek. As with many mid-century classics, the 1463 came in a variety of dial and case configurations with the vast majority produced in yellow gold. In this way the watch here is typical, but it has the much-desired Breguet numeral dial instead of one with more pedestrian stick markers or numerals at only 12 and 6.
Patek Philippe is another one of those Genevan brands from Switzerland that has managed to survive the ravages of time and has emerged as a greater brand after having matured and aged. There is something extremely likeable about this brand. Perhaps it’s the fact that it doesn’t really feel like a brand; there are a lot of brands out there where it’s just a faceless label that is the entire brand unto itself. With a brand that is actually a name, you can’t help but feel that you are maybe relating to a genuine person, someone who is imperfect and flawed, just like you are. Patek Philippe replica watches aren’t so common, but because the “brand” is so likeable, there are more and more being produced.
