Lot Essay

Accompanied by Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in 1948 and its subsequent sale on 25 April 1949.

Production of reference 2442 was launched in 1948 and could be found in Patek Philippe sales catalogues until around 1960.

It is one of the rarest and most exclusive rectangular models by Patek Philippe. In fact, research has resulted in the discovery of only some 30 yellow gold examples of reference 2442 to have appeared in public to date.

The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, 2nd edition, p. 136, pl. 193.
