Discontinued Men's Model
Patek Philippe was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1839. His achievement was the creation of the Calatrava, the pinnacle of dress watches and a model for round cases that still exudes a particularly dignified style. And its commitment to continuing as a manufacture is something that many watch fans aspire to.
This time, we would like to introduce the Ref. 2552, commonly known as Disco Volante, whose name means "flying saucer" in Italian. The case shape is somewhat sexy and its plump silhouette gives it a gentle atmosphere that even makes it seem adorable. The warm ivory dial is in good condition, and the dolphin hands and small seconds that are symbols of vintage watches give the design an air of familiarity and sophistication.
The movement is Patek Philippe's first automatic caliber, the 12-600. This thin movement has been certified with the Geneva Seal, which is said to have strict inspection standards as the world's oldest center of luxury watchmaking. Although the design was outstanding in every aspect, including the 18KYG rotor with its bold yet delicate pattern decoration, it was a rare watch, with only around 7,000 produced until around 1960 due to its high cost. This movement is highly sought after among watch collectors as it was the prototype that led to the caliber 27-460, which later became known as the "ultimate movement."
The leather bracelet is set with our original shiny black crocodile leather. A valuable 18KYG buckle is also included, so we recommend that you use it together. This particular watch had its PP crown replaced with a Calatrava cross crown during a previous repair by the manufacturer. This is an excellent item that will add a touch of glamour to your everyday life. Please come and see us in store.
