Patek Philippe produced only a few pieces of ref. 2431 in rose gold, it is an extremely rare piece in this metal.

The reference 2431 is a fine and very rare example and unusual model, distinguished by its highly decorative fluted lugs, demonstrating Patek Philippe avant-garde spirit by using varying shapes and forms, breaking away from the straight-forward circular shape with plain lugs. Inspiration from architecture, geometry and history created a new graciousness of form with rounded corners, stepped and triple-stepped forms and other elements, like scrolls.

Furthermore preserved in excellent original overall condition.

Manufacture of reference 2431 was launched in 1948. The model is illustrated in Patek Philippe Wristwatches by Martin Huber & Alan Banbery, second edition, p. 171.
