Catalogue Note

The Reference 2526 was produced between 1953 and 1960. It is the first Patek Philippe wristwatch to be launched with an automatic movement, the calibre 12'''600 AT. With its high quality mechanism and classic proportions, the 2526 is widely recognized as one of the most appealing and collectible time-only Patek Philippe wristwatches. 

An estimated 2'900 examples have been made and the vast majority of them were cased in yellow gold. Only about 12% of the overall production were sold in a pink gold case, as with the present lot.
