Lot Essay

With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with rose gold bracelet in 1957 and its subsequent sale on 21 May 1958.

Fresh to the market and preserved in very good and original overall condition, the rarity of the present watch in pink gold is further enhanced by the retailer Serpico y Laino, Patek Philippe's prestigious agent in Caracas, Venezuela, signed on the dial and with the initials "S.&L." stamped on the case back.

Its 18K pink gold link bracelet is stamped GF for Gay Frères, renowned for their high quality wristwatch bracelets.
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 Museum Patek Philippe, Volume II, pp. 244-245.
