    Serial number dates the movement to ca 1938. A great watch and thanks for posting the pics.

    if you call Patek in NYC, they'll try to help you identify the watch per the serial number. they were happy to help me authenticate an early production Aquanaut.

    Wonderful watch. A Cal. 10-200 with indirect central second hand modification:

    It needs a service. The adjustment lever is pointing way to much to one side. The movement seem to be quite dirty too.
    Please do not use it/wind it up, as the oils are possibly dry or have creeped to the wrong place. The watch can be ruined (= very expensive to fix) if it is used without a proper service.

    A very beautyful watch, well worth resurrecting!
