Catalogue Note

Reference 2499 is recognised as one of the most important perpetual calendar wristwatches ever made by Patek Philippe. When the 2499 was originally launched, Patek Philippe was still the only watchmaker to manufacture such a complication. Manufactured between 1950 and 1985, only 349 examples in a total of four series were made.
The present lot belongs to the 4th series and is part of a limited series which was made for the famous retailer Beyer in Zürich. Only one other
 2499/100J retailed by Beyer appeared on the market and was sold in Geneva in November 2007 for CHF 505,000.
In outstanding condition and accompanied by its original certificate and presentation case, the present piece is one of the finest and rarest examples of the reference to have been seen in the market and this is the first time it has appeared at auction.
Reference 2499 is illustrated in Huber, M., Banbery, A., Patek Philippe Wristwatches, Vol.2, p.302.
