Lot Essay

Reference 2481
Known as the ‘King Size’, it was introduced into the market in 1950 and was one of the largest wristwatches ever made by Patek Philippe. The model was available with the standard silvered dial but was also with cloisonné enamel versions, others depicting portraits of famous personalities or geographic maps. In total, 1’000 examples of reference 2481 were made up to the end of production in 1960 - 650 examples in yellow gold and 350 in pink gold. The cases were made by the Le Locle master case maker Bernard Dubois.
Ref.2481 is illustrated in the ‘Blue Book 5’, 2021 edition by Eric Tortella, page 206-
