Expression of a period of great flair, the reference 2474 by Patek Philippe is capable of attracting and mesmerize. It was launched in 1950 and made in a very small series only. The present one has a stunning yellow gold case with horn-shaped lugs with central facetted hooded lugs as opposed to the straight lugs more commonly found on this model. It is believed to be one of only four examples of this reference known to have appeared in public to date.The silver dial is embellished with applied dot gold indexes and Roman numerals, subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock and baton hands. Due to its beauty, it perfect piece for a prestigious collection of Patek Philippe shaped watches.
