The reference 2508 is also known as “Grande Calatrava Waterproof” and was launched in 1950 alongside its sister reference 2509. The two differ by having either subsidiary seconds or sweep seconds such as the present watch. Reference 2508 was produced until at least 1967 and not many examples have been produced in pink gold such as the present specimen. This lot simply surprises for its preservation quality, conserved in beautiful condition with crisp hallmark to the side of the case. Inside the screw case back, covering the legendary 27 SC, there’s a metal dust cap to keep moisture and magnetism outside. The dial is very charismatic with an incredibly charming untouched silver color, pink gold indexes with radium inserts and radium hands compleated by an outer minutes and seconds track. Accompanied by a Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin confirming the calibre, movement, reference and case.
