Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract of the Archives confirming production of the present watch with gold bracelet in 1954 and its subsequent sale on 12 October 1955.

Purchased by the grandfather of the actual owner, this watch has never been offered in public before. It is preserved in very good overall condition, the rarity enhanced by the presence of the gold bracelet, confirmed by the Extract from the Archives.

Reference 2526, introduced in 1953, was Patek Philippe's first model featuring a self-winding movement, the legendary calibre 12-600 AT. The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, first edition pp. 168-169, second edition pp. 213, 216-217.
