The Patek Philippe reference Ref. 2552 is undoubtedly one of the most popular Calatrava models among collectors. The esthetics of this watch are indeed exceptionally modern. The water-resistant stepped case measures 36 mm, and the dial is just as wide, which, together with the small curved lugs, makes the watch to have a great presence on the wrist. Nicknamed "Disco Volante" by collectors for its unusual shapes, reference 2552 is highly sought after, especially when it has with rare features like the present example. The dial bears the double signature "Patek Philippe" and "Tiffany", a rather unusual fact that makes this 2552 a real collector's item. Reference 2552 was produced for 5 years, from 1955 to 1960, examples with double signature can be counted on the fingers of one hand. The reference 2552 is powered by the in-house automatic caliber 12-600 with Geneva Seal, in the opinion of many one of the best automatic calibers ever developed.

This Patek Philippe Ref. 2552 is an gorgeous example of this very rare reference. The Tiffany lettering on the dial makes the watch extremely exclusive, there are very few 2552s known with the famous New York jeweler's lettering on the dial. The condition is very good, the dial has acquired a fascinating brown patina over time, the case is intact, never polished and with deep gold stamps, the caliber 12-600 works perfectly. In addition, the movement is appropriately stamped 'HOX,' the correct import mark for the American market, a fact that further confirms that the watch was originally marketed in the US, where Tiffany is based. The caseback bears an intriguing dedication indicating that this watch was a birthday gift from employees to their employer. Finally, it is useful to note that the date of the dedication on the caseback is also written in American format, further evidence of the watch's origins in the US.

Serial number 696,XXX, year 1957.
