Lot Essay

A rare find, the Patek Philippe reference 507 was produced in the 1920s and 30s during a period of which Patek Philippe would experiment with their watch cases, producing unique models and designs such as the present watch featuring “hooded lugs”. Featuring the Freccero signature, the present timepiece exudes the Zeitgeist of the decade in terms of design and heritage.

Freccero & Cia., Montevideo
The firm was originally founded as a jewellery retailer in 1868 by Oscar Spangerberg of German origin who a few years later sold it to his employee Francisco J. Freccero. In 1908, Freccero & Cia. moved to 25 de Mayo in Montevideo. Initially focusing on jewellery, the descendants of Francisco Freccero decided to expand into watches, becoming the sole authorized retailer of Patek Philippe in Montevideo in 1929, a relationship that lasted for 70 years and resulted in the sale of some of the most exclusive and unique retailer signed watches of the 20th century.
