A very fine and rare 18k yellow gold sweep seconds manual-winding wristwatch ref.2508.
With Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of this watch in 1960 and its subsequent sale on April 29th, 1960.
Ref.2508 is one of the most popular time only watches available on the market today, and the brands first non-complicate watch in a water-resistant Calatrava case. A charismatic timepiece, it has a masculine sporty attraction. This is further enhanced by the fact it shares the same case shape and proportions as the celebrated water-resistant chronograph, reference 1463. In production from 1951 until approximately 1960, the model was produced in yellow and rose gold, as well as stainless steel.
