More about Patek Philippe 2468 Vintage Rectangle Flared Lugs 18K Yellow Gold

This is a vintage c. 1949 18K yellow gold Patek Philippe, 2468. It has an integral woven 18K yellow gold bracelet with a deployant clasp, and a faceted crystal. The 21mm by 39mm solid two-body hourglass-shaped concave case, rectangular bezel, flared lugs, solid case back, and bracelet are polished. It includes the original silver dial, applied gold Arabic numeral hour markers at three of the quarter hours, yellow gold feuille' hands, and gold dart indexes. The Patek Philippe signature is intact and untouched. A round subsidiary constant seconds dial is at the 6 o'clock position, and the 9.2mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

The mechanical manual winding Patek Philippe caliber 06-6 movement is rhodium plated, with fausses cotes embellishment, and it's stamped with the Seal of Geneva quality mark. It's constructed with 18 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, and a monometallic balance adjusted for heat, cold isochronism and 5 positions. It has a self-compensating Breguet balance spring, and a micrometer regulator.

The production of this model began in 1949-50; this is a rare, early example in excellent condition.
