Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in rose gold in 1965 and its subsequent sale on 24 March 1966.

Reference 2594, equipped with a manual winding mechanical movement, is one of the rarest models produced by Patek Philippe. According to the archives, in fact, only 8 other specimens in rose gold have passed previously to the auction and therefore represents a unique possibility that has to be exploited to possess an object of difficult availability. In addition to this, the peculiarity of the decoration of its case must be added, with a large hobnail bezel entirely hand-engraved that maintains its original beauty: to the touch it is in fact evident that the sharpness of the engravings are still totally fresh. The thin and rigid loops give solidity to an elegant and delicate watch while the clean silver dial with applied baton indexes it’s considerably nice.
