PROPERTY FROM THE FAMILY OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER
Accompanied by an Extract from the Archives confirming production with cloisonné enamel dial in 1954 and sale on January 15th, 1955.
Ref. 2494 first appeared in 1951 and was produced for approximately three years thereafter. To the best of our knowledge, no other examples from this reference are known to bear a cloisonné enamel dial.
The craft of cloisonné enameling is reserved for only the most skilled and patient of artisans. Each piece is a unique work created for the motif of the client's request. The present dial was made by Stern Frères, the greatest dial producer of this time who made all the enamel dials for Patek Philippe in this era.
The present example is being offered on behalf of the family of the original owner and this is the first time for it to appear at auction.
