So Rolex popularized the concept of obtaining chronometer certificates for wristwatches. Omega then started doing it with their Constellations. Patek didn’t really do it for wristwatches as far as I know. What Patek does is stamp their movements with a Geneva seal of quality. Some of them have one stamp, and some of them have two. But nobody has ever been able to explain to me the difference. It’s the same stamp. One would be like on a bridge, and one would be on the lower plate. And that just means that it met certain standards of quality production.
I’ve never owned a Patek observatory wristwatch (they did have their pocket watches tested), and I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. I don’t want to say they never did it because there are always scarce things out there that you haven’t seen before. In fact, very few companies went to the trouble of sending their watches to observatories for testing because of the time and expense. It would take maybe six months between when a watch was made to when it could get out of the observatory and be available for sale.
The “335″ is another iconic Tavannes model, introduced in the late 1920s, and named for the movement Caliber inside the watch. The elongated movement allowed for a more streamlined case, and room for a longer mainspring which gave the watch a three-day running time, an amazing feat for its day about Cartier and the Art Deco style that Aaron Rubin a fellow Art Deco Society member did a wonderful job at. When it comes to a lecture even the most interesting subject can be boring if not presented well. But, Aaron had no problem presenting the lecture in a interesting and extremely enjoyable way.
