The inside case back has the Patek Philippe mark and French marks of 18 k gold. At that time import taxes in France for gold watches were very high ; for that reason Patek Philippe, as other famous Swiss Companies , had the case made by the seller in France. The production of watches with a French case was very limited , so this chronograph is to be considered very rare for this feature.
