about the watch

This watch is truly exceptional in both its aesthetic and mechanical qualities. As watch collectors and lovers, we feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to handle such an important timepiece. The cloisonné enamel dial is an absolute marvel, displaying an array of vivid colors and showcasing the incredible artistic and technical abilities of Patek's enamelers. The case is equally stunning, featuring fancy faceted lugs that are revived from the legendary 2523 reference. When you flip the watch over, you'll be treated to a mesmerizing view of the caliber 240 HU, which is beautifully decorated and displays the now-renowned Patek microrotor. We could certainly continue to gush about the beauty and allure of this watch, but we invite you to take a moment to closely examine the pictures, as they speak for themselves.

The watch is new, so both the bracelet and case are in immaculate condition.

The watch is sold with its full original set, including the box and warranty card.

The movement is a caliber 240 HU, which runs perfectly well.
