PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT ASIAN COLLECTOR
Reference 2481 was introduced by Patek Philippe in 1950 and was one of the largest wristwatches ever made by the brand. The standard reference is fitted with silvered dial but exceptions were made and beautifully rare cloisonné enamel dials depicting portraits of celebrities, landscapes or continents for special order were manufactured.
According to our research, the present model was made in a limited edition of about 250 pieces in pink gold and was produced as part of a special order from the Patek Philippe retailer in Saudi Arabia to honor the King Ibn Saud.
The present watch is not only in excellent original condition, but also fitted with a rare pink gold original bracelet produced by Gay Frères and signed Patek Philippe.
