With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch in rose gold with applied gold hour markers in 1954 and its subsequent sale on October 21th 1955.

We are here in the presence of a very rare and unusual Patek Philippe reference 2472: its production started in 1950 and soon became really appreciated among watches’ aficionados for its particular shape. This very watch here offered is part of the Gondolo family, but the characteristics of its case make this lot a really rare example of Patek Philippe craftmanship. The square shape of 26 × 26 mm case with snap on back has been realized in pink gold, the marquise-shaped lugs are very sturdy compared to the delicacy of the rest of the case and the crown as well is rather massive, but are the unusual wavy edges of this watch to surprise us. In addition to this, they also fascinate the particular fancy indexes, in addition to the classic baton, applied inside a very clean silver dial with seconds at 6 o’clock. In the simplicity, the details make the difference and this watch is certainly the demonstration and represents the almost unique possibility of buying an absolutely exceptional watch.
