Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1954 and its subsequent sale on 8 August 1955.
The present watch is distinguished by its very good and original overall condition, combining with its dial and case back of the watch both signed by Serpico y Laino, Patek Philippe's prestigious retailer in Caracas, Venezuela.

To the best of our knowledge, this reference 2526 has never been offered in public before.

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.
