These clocks were manufactured in 1973 in a very limited series for the 75-year jubilee of the Swiss Bank Corporation. D 145 x 210 mm. Full documentation of full service overhaulment, performed by fabrique Patek Philippe S. Historical connection with the White House and the movie “The Butler” (2013). In the movie, “The Butler”, the actor John Cusack plays Richard Nixon. In one of the scenes in the oval room with Richard Nixon, you can actually see this specific Patek Philippe Quartz desk clock behind Richard Nixon (John Cusack), sitting at his desk – footage from this scene attached! If the props manager of this movie, Stephen Finders, did his job correctly, into the smallest detail, such should exist among the inventory of The White House, given, of course, that it was not a personal belonging to the President. To be noted: probably the most famous clock given to the President of the United States, was the so called “The Kennedy Clock”. This clock is a Quartz desk clock, displaying three time zones Washington DC, Moscow and Berlin. The clock was presented to President Kennedy by the German retailer and designer Hans Wipperfeld as a gift from the people of West Berlin on June 26, 1963, during President Kennedy´s state visite to West Germany.
