The present reference 2545 has never been offered in public before and is preserved in remarkably good condition.
Ref 2545 is the waterproof counterpart of the famed Calatrava ref. 96, differing from it for the increased size and screw back. One of Patek's rarest references, it is known to be produced in yellow, pink and white gold. This far, only slightly more than 10 examples of pink 2545 came back to the market.
