Lot Essay

Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives production of the present watch in 1956 and its subsequent sale on 20 September 1957. To the best of our knowledge, it 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. With its attractive combination of a state of the art movement and traditional enamel dial, it is considered a very desirable collectors' watch.

Reference 2526 is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, first edition pp. 168-169, second edition pp. 213, 216-217.
